Why do curls drop?

My curls have just started dropping and though I know its a good thing, I don't exactly know why? Is it a sign of growth or that the hair is well moisturized and healthy?

Thanks for the answers

    You meant the hair is now hanging lengthwise instead of sticking out/sticking up?

    I thought that meant that your hair was getting longer and therefore heavier.
    Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!

    Gravity and length.

    Curls "dropping" (:confused4: btw, I never heard this term before IRL) doesn't necessarily equal "healthy".. you could have dry brittle hair that "drops" just due to length (and gravity).

    I know that some curls don't "drop", they grow out and up more than out and down.

    Thanks ladies, nice to know my hair is indeed retaining length. :blob4:

    @bekkapoo: actually I learned of the word from people IRL who've used it. Maybe it's a Canadian thing....

    That could be it..thanks for the explanation. :iconbiggrin: I read so many folks saying that here on the forums, but I've never heard it IRL myself. I was wondering if that was forum-speak or a regional thing.

    Yup, if your keeping up with a healthy routine, maybe your growth + gravity is at work

    I didnt' like when my hair started to do that, and now its really grown over these last months, I donn't wear wash-n-gos cause it looks funny.

    I'm sticking to my plan to grow it out for sure, but my springs are looking more and more like waves.
