I was 2a before I started CO-washing. Now I think i'm 2b. Or a mix of both.
Here is my hair dried after washing, I just combed with a wide tooth combed when it was wet.

2b or 2b-2c sounds about right with that picture, but if you combed it while it was wet, it's possible that you've got even more wave that got straightened out a bit during the combing process. I wouldn't be surprised if you're a full-blown 2c if you try to handle your hair like it's curly.

I may be a 2c...I remember not combing it once and it was super wavy with one or two ringlets.

For a typing you don't comb be side that pulls out wave (being wet breaks some of the structural bonds in hair that create your curl pattern), quite possibly you are 2c on the Naturallycurly scale.

I might be in the minority but I think your hair is around 3a,maybe a bit of 2c but definitely on the curlier side.From what I remember,wavy hair should have less root curl than you do.

Can't type it for sure since you combed. Depending on your exact hair, you could be anywhere between about a 2b (in which case combing disrupts your curl pattern very little) to a 3c (in which case combing disrupts your curl pattern a LOT). About all we can say for a type is "not straight".
