Natural Hair that is straight along the edges and ends

My hair is all natural it has been that way for about 7 months. I wor my hair pulled back everyday during those 7 months unless I straightened it. Wich I only did about 5 times. I have deep conditioned my hair done braid out and wist outs but my edges and ends won't curl unless I have a roller at the end of my twist of braid. I really want to wear my hair down but right now it just isn't working. I wanted to know if any one had a similar problem or a possible solution
Is it possible that that hair is naturally straight?
My hair is the same way. I have frizzy straight strands at the crown of my hair and some at the very front (slight 3b). It wont curl unless I force it to curl. Sometimes our hair can have multiple textures.

I don't think so its so thick every where else it wouldn't make sense
greenandchic what do you to to "make" your hair curl everything I try doesn't work. Braid outs twist outs gels nothing seems to work
Maybe you have heat damage or some type of tension damage.. Or it could just be that your hair doesn't "curl". That would be ok too. When you say it's so thick everywhere else, what would that have to do with your curl pattern?

It's not uncommon to have multiple curl patterns or textures on one head. The hair in the back of my head is looser than the rest of my hair. I would suggest twist's or braid's to camouflage the multiple textures to create a more uniformed look.

But seriously, you don't think it could be heat damage at all? Has it always been that way since you've been natural. I'm just trying to rule that out. The hair around the nape and edges tends to be more fragile, as do the ends. If you use heat as often as you do, I would want to make sure that it's not heat damage. If your hair has always been straight like though then I wouldn't worry about it. But if it is damaged, it's damaged beyond repair IMO because heat damage is pretty significant. I had heat damage once, my hair was curly for about 5 inches, then straight in the middle for about 3 inches, then curly at the bottom (here is a visual ~~~~~---~~). It would not curl for nothing.

If you don't want to cut it though, you can still camouflage it by doing twist's or braid outs.

If you were to draw a line horizontally across the middle of my scalp, the hair above the line would be 3b, and the hair below would be 2a. Some of us just have multiple hair textures on our heads.
