I think your hair just looks shiny, don't worry about it.
My sister made the comment about wet hair to me once but I was using Frizz-Ease at the time so she had a point, certainly mine back then looked nothing like yours!
I also think your fringe looks nice, you're like me and don't have much root curl so I think we can get away with it without there being an obvious difference, if you see what I mean.
