Curlys disappeared

I am 13.I used to have a 3a to a 3b style hair and i used to hate it (BIG MISTAKE). I only straightened it once and never permed. I started using a new shampoo around 9.BTW: Never got hair cut except trims. It got flater and flatter. I WAS SO SAD I MISSED MY CURLYS I got a hair cut around 11 and it got kinda curly (2b BARELY) It got kinda curly when wet but once it dried it got all fuzzy ( still like that).My hair isnt the same. It looks different . I WANT THE CURLS BACK! Now it is the same length it was when I was 9.

I SWAM A LOT too but always put it in a braid and now i use a cap and condition and wash hair everyday after swimming

    Part of the change of your hair may be due to hormonal changes you're probably undergoing.
    Your best bet it to just take really good care of your hair and see if your curls come back.
    Try not to shampoo quite so often (it can dry your hair), but condition often. And deep condition once a week.

    Have you read about the cg method? It has been extremely helpful in making my hair curlier. Here is a great blog to read up on the method:

    If you want help, just message me. It was a little confusing in the beginning but it is just so helpful once you get the hang of it!!

    Just look into it... here are some before and after pictures if you aren't fully convinced yet:
