When I wash my hair or wet it, I think I have 3c type curls. But after it dries it basically frows up... when i try braid outs or twist outs the hair just takes the form of the braids or twists and I see barely any of my natural curls. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

the first pic is how my hair dries when it's just combed. the second is when its wet (maybe with conditioner still in)
