Curly hair confusion

k so i was having a bad curly 2 weeks , my hair wouldnt not curl right or even try to go wavy ..im a wavy but can get curls galore at times. so i decided to get a trim , i had layers for a while and my hair was growing long . so i got almost two inches cut so now i barely have layers but just a lil is still there. On my next cut it should be all one length . I was complaining to one of my stylist ( i have two stylists for my hair ) and telling her i couldnt get curls in my hair , shes all 1 your hair is getting long and 2 u have layers which tend to pull out your curl. I went straight for a few days cuz my hair just wanted to go straight lately. The other day since it was so hot i decided to try to go curly and whoa! I had curls once again!
So now im so confused. When i had layers my hair was nice and curly , then went yucky after a while , now i barely have any layers and its so curly. what gives ? :?

    Maybe just getting a good trim on the length helped get some of the weight off of your hair overall. That's about the only thing I can think of.

    That's happened to me before. If my hair just isn't curling nicely or much at all, I straighten it for a short while and when I go curly again, it is as if my hair has suddenly remembered that it is supposed to curl!
    I never heard that layers pull out a curl though, in fact I had layers put in to enhance my curl and it has!

    I've noticed two main reason my hair won't curl - it's too long/heavy, and/or it's over-conditioned. Straightening helps when my hair is over-conditioned b/c it dries it out a bit. Maybe it's a combo of these two factors that lead to your issues, and that's why straightening and a good cut helped. Just a thought! :wink:

    Weird cuz i had layers done a few times just to get a better curl and its helped , but lately my hair was just not curling right . so when i had it cut it just went curly , i barely have the layers now so thats why im confused , i guess my hair is just plain weird and has a mind of its own nowadays :lol: .

    Interesting. My hair has been growing out the last 6 months and the longer it gets, the more curl it has. I'm getting round ringlets now. But layers definitely help for me, and I just got sidebangs this week which cut down on triangle effect.
