New member - need advice with curls 3B

Hello everyone, I am new to this site and I am hoping that I can get some good feedback.

My hair is in between 3A and 3B. I am a little dissapointed with my hair right now and desperate to get my curls back. My hair used to be very curly and wild looking, which I love! Now my hair has gone from really curly to wavy, which I don't love :(
For my hair to have nice defined curls I have to now dry my hair with a diffuser and I did not have to do this before.

I really want my curls to be more defined and wild, not wavy and almost no curls :(
I am even considering doing a curly perm on my curly hair hoping that it may bring back my curls but I am not sure if that would be the right thing to do or would that only make things worst.

Please for all my curly's with my type of hair, if any of you have experienced this and found a resolution, please help! I miss my curls and in need of serious restoration.

Thank you.

    Hi, sanbra1019! There are many things that can cause a change in curl pattern - from hormones to wrong products. It's not likely that anyone here will be able diagnose the specific issue. What might help is to know more about your hair and the products/routine you've been using. Knowing your hair properties will help you choose the right products and routines that can bring out the best in your curls. This link is a good place to start:

    My hair is fine and I know I need a protein treatment if my curls get limp and undefined.
    3B, fine, normal to low porosity
    Modified CG since June 2010
    HGs: FSG, anything with glycerin, Tresemme Naturals conditioner, Curls Like Us cloths, satin pillowcases.
