I have no idea what my hair does...

So, I attached pics but i don't know if you can see very well sorry! It's hard to show the pattern because it has a "S" shape but it's thick but it doesn't really do a curl and it's kind of i guess coarse for a real wave and in the front and back it goes straight, absolutely no wave. The only thing that's easy to manage it is braid outs when I do a wash and go and leave it alone it kind of looks like Tanika Ray's but I think her hair is much more defined than mine. I don't know what to do with it. Any help??

It looks like you have heat damage, or an old perm? If so it will be easier to do twist outs and braid outs. And trim periodically until its gone.
Welcome! What are your hair properties and full current routine? Do you have any old heat damage or chemical damage in your hair?

My hair is not relaxed anymore at all I actually think I did have some left in these pictures but now it is all natural. I just rinsed out my hair I will put pics up in one second and it doesn't really look like anything just a warning...
It might be heat damage but it's looked like this no matter what. I don't have a set regimen but I use the EverCurl shampoo and cleansing conditioner, eco gel for braid outs and jojoba oil or olive oil sometimes

Okay I'll try to keep doing braidouts but it's soo annoying especially because I moisturize it A LOT my hair almost seems like it's not absorbing but I'll keep trying. Thanks!!
Moisturise it a lot with what? You don't mention any conditioners in your routine. Most ingredients in conditioners don't absorb, they sit on the surface. Humectants only help hydrate hair in some climates, many dry haired curlies need to seal in that moisture with something containing oils. What are your hair properties especially porosity?

You might make your Eco gel into an Ecostyler custard
