Exclamation Lost my curl :( need to figure out why

I'm 17 and for some reason I lost my curl this year. I haven't been doing anything different. I did damage my ends pretty bad at one point but I cut off a lot of it when I noticed my hair going straight. My ends are great, my hair is soft but is is also completely straight. I have no idea what happened. I've tried a few things but nothing has even brought back a wave. I had a type 2a-2b curl. If anyone has any ideas please let me know!

It is possible you need some protein. You can perform a stretch test to check that. http://www.organiccolorsystems.com/a...-stretch-test/ (ignore their specific product recommendations - it's a professional site so of course their suggesting their own products. But the info is good.)

My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
