Lost my curl :( need to figure out why

DeveyDevey Posts: 1Registered Users
I'm 17 and for some reason I lost my curl this year. I haven't been doing anything different. I did damage my ends pretty bad at one point but I cut off a lot of it when I noticed my hair going straight. My ends are great, my hair is soft but is is also completely straight. I have no idea what happened. I've tried a few things but nothing has even brought back a wave. I had a type 2a-2b curl. If anyone has any ideas please let me know!

    It is possible you need some protein. You can perform a stretch test to check that. /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.organiccolorsystems.com%2Fammonia-free%2Fsalon-hair-diagnostics%2Fwet-stretch-test%2F" class="Popup (ignore their specific product recommendations - it's a professional site so of course their suggesting their own products. But the info is good.)
    remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!! :read2:
    My hair:
    2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
    My routine:
    Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
    RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
    LI: KCKT or CJSL
    Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

    Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
