Help! Hair half straight, half curly, and messy

So the bottom layer of my hair is curly/wavy, but the top part is mostly straight. Overall, it's very messy and poofy too. I've always hated my texture and never wear it down naturally. So, what would you recommend for neater curls or waves all around?
I've included some pictures, they're not the best examples and are crappy phone quality, but hopefully they'll give an idea. In them, I had just shampooed and conditioned my hair, and let it dry after adding some biosilk.

    Have you tried to deep condition it, by leaving conditioner in it for like 30 minutes then washing it out.. I do that alot if I flat iron my hair and my curl doesnt come completely back, so I deep condition it, and eventually it goes back to normal. Good luck

    I know how frustrating this can be! I have 3b/c curls on the top layer, and 2c/3a curls on the bottom layer! It's hard sometimes. But I find that protein and deep treatments work really well, especially when I do them consistently.

    My hair has a mix of low/med/high porosity, and it's medium textured (some are still fine, though!)
