What's wrong with my hair?

I've been natural all my life and recently (within a year or two) stopped straightening my hair frequenlty. I've straightened my hair twice I think this year so far. The bottom of my hair is very curly and clumps together easily while the top of my hair is almost each and frizzy. when I brush my hair when wet and saturated with product the top of a strand/clump will not curl and it will curl at the bottom. I have attached pictures, they were taken when I was trying out new products so my hair looks dry but you get the jist. I believe my hair is 3b/3c. Please help!

    An alternate to the 2 step is the DIY gelatin as well if you'd like to try that route as well. I've tried both and prefer the gelatin, but many people do like the 2 step. Best of luck!

    Hm. It pokes like they are brushed out. Have you tried using a leave in and defining products. After you've distribute them, scrunch your hair to encourage the curls at your midlengths and roots?

    It's not brushed out that's they way it is, and yes I use leave in and defining products the same thing occurs though. @BrittanyM

    You may want to try deep conditioning and protein treatments, focusing on your roots to see if you can get the curl to come back. It's worth a shot and won't hurt your hair.

    Yes I would like to try the aphogee 2 step protein treat meant as I heard good things about it. @BrittanyM
