Your cut looks great
looks like you definitely achieved the Giselle look you were going for with it straightened:
Not sure how you would achieve that without heat - you could try twisting damp hair into a bun and leaving it over night. That might result in looser, more beachy waves. You could also try combing products through with a wide tooth comb or Denman brush, and then avoid any kind of scrunching.
Post us a curly pic too
2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate
My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!
