The water is weighing your hair down! Also, people with tighter curl patterns are always curlier when wet. This is not a problem at all. My hair is slightly wavy when soaking wet, but curls into a strong 3a pattern. Don't stress because your hair doesn't look like everyone else's. That's just silly. You might have finer strands as well.
