Been natural for a while but hair won't form curls?

Hi all, i've been going natural for a long time now since I last rebonded my hair in 2010. However, there are specific parts of my hair that have a very weird texture, and doesn't curl like the rest of my hair does. I had difficulty finding out what my curl type is because I have different types depending on the area...

I'm not quite sure what's wrong with it, but it has been like that for a long time and nothing seems to get it to curl...

Could you please help me figure out? I just got a haircut today and these are the pictures.

    Thank you! I just got a haircut yesterday and those are the pictures.

    My issue is with the curls on the back, maybe it's not as clear in the picture but they aren't as curly or shiny as the curls on the front/side. That's what my issue was. I'll edit my post with a picture that'll hopefully explain :D

    Thank you! I guess it isn't clear here.. I really like the curls on my front sides but the back doesn't curl and isn't the same.. I don't know, but i'll try to edit the post and put up a proper picture, maybe that'll make it clearer. :D

    Welcome,  @Murria23.  I see that your hair more "waves" in the back, rather than forming ringlets, but it's pretty just as it is. You could try doing the skip curl method back there if you wanted, but honestly, I wouldn't mess with it. It's beautiful!
