 Help identifying my milk snake

I have just bought a Nelsons milk snake for my girlfriend. She already has a honduran albino tangerine. I bought this nelsons milk as a "hypo" but after scowrering the internet there is no such thing a a hypo nelsons milk snake. Definately has thin bands so not a pueblan mis identified and has more than 13 bands so is not a sinaloan. Must be a Nelsons but only difference between her and a normal looking one is that her head and bands aren’t black they are light chocolate brown. Can anyone help????

 Help identifying my milk snake

Since you haven’t put on a picture to go by, I suppose you don’t have one or the capability to post it with, so here goes from what is available. If you have a predominantly red milksnake that has brown rings and not black, it is a hypo of some type. 13 bands is not a limiter for whether a snake is a sinaloan or not...some sinaloan have a few more rbr’s, some don’t. If you could post a pic that would help out immensely.
