I have the same problem. Right side is curlier/wavier on the right than the left. I wish I found a way to fix this. I just try to make sure that I apply my products evenly any encourage whatever waves I can make on the left side. I also wear hair accessories (mainly large flowers) and always put them on the right side. It seems to make the different curl patterns less noticeable. Sometimes I apply a bit more product on the left side and it will at times produce a bit more curl. I really don't think it's as noticeable to anyone else as it is to us

I have this issue, too.

I try to pretend it's not happening.

I wonder what causes it? I'm curious, maybe hair is thicker on the right?

I find that if my hair is parted more on one side that it can affect the waviness simply because there is less hair on that side!

My right side is dryer, more tangly, and curly than the left. I totally prefer my left side. Its much more moisturized and neatly curled. It detangles by itself in the shower too! The right side always wants to go bananas on me although I've kind of learned how to compensate with extra conditioner and a bit more styling product to weigh it down.

same here, right has more curl than the left. I also part my hair toward the right, and I have since I was about 10. I found if I just change my part it evens it out a bit.

My hair is definitely curlier on the right side but I just live with it. I've wondered if it has anything to do with the fact that I sleep on my left side so that side of my hair gets flattened. I started wearing my hair in a bun when I sleep to see if it makes a difference.
