    Default Hair Typing help?

    Hello LHC, I've tried a few times to definitively type my hair but it is really hard for me to keep my hands out of my hair while it's drying. So today I washed (oil shampoo), tied a thin towel around my shoulders to catch drips and left it alone to dry. As much as I could I left it alone. It fell forward over my shoulders a few times and I let it swing back, but no fingers through it and I tried not to touch it.

    It is almost fully dry, with just a few locks at the ends still damp so you can see the wave formation without the fuzz/fluff that happens when it is fully dry. I don't know if you can see, but some of the locks form long, loose spirals.

    After combing out, especially if I comb while it's damp, it will look basically straight, but full and sometimes frizzy. Less frizz so as I've used oils and lately oil shampoo, but still volume especially the first day.

    Anyone want to suggest what type this is? Thanks for playing!!

    Thank you for taking the time to look and give me your thoughts. I really appreciate it. This in-between hair, not straight, but not curly has been confusing for me. I'm hoping that as I grow out dye and improve the overall condition of my hair that the waves will continue to form more clearly giving me less frizz and more clearly defined waves.

    2a, possibly 2b because the s-waves are a little tighter than I'd expect for 2a, esp. toward the ends.

    2a/2b vote for me

    My first thought was 2a, but it could be 2a/2b, also.
