Default Is anyone else's underlayer straight?

I don't know why, but the outlayer of my hair is wavy/curly, and the underlayer is wavyish/straight (mostly straight, I think).

Yes! I have this same problem! I have this wavy/curly canopy and the underlayer WILL NOT curl no matter what. Has anyone else solved this problem?

It's very natural and normal to have this....we all have different textures and curl patterns. My not so good area isn't the underneath, but the back. When my hair is just the right length, the sides/top/crown/underlayer are fine, but the very center back is just meh.

Argh same problem here! My center back has very weak waves no matter what I do! Then the rest of my head is wurly except my underlayer, which is 3a spirals. I wish we could all just exchange textures so our hair was how we wanted!

That's totally how mine is! My underlayer is 3A too, though I have the sporadic 3A curl here and there throughout, EXCEPT for the back.

My underlayer is way more curly than my top layer. Go figure!

Here is my hair:


And here is my hair underneath:



It is very strange!
Currently I am trying to "baby" the underneath, by applying products upside down and I've seen some difference.

Got the same problem....that's pretty much why I got an inverted bob cut. I kept the long, pretty curls framing my face and on top of my head, and the rebel-underside waves that would not curl cut short. Ha!

Yes my underneath hair is straight, I see this on other wavies too.

Mine is about curly at the very top middle of my head, then looser as it goes out from there, but still very wavy in front and all over the canopy, but the nape is not like the rest of the hair.

It's normal, and be glad it's not straight at the top and curly underneath, that would be harder to deal with.

The hair at the nape of my neck is really straight-so much so that my stylist has to cut it a bit shorter so it does not hang our under the curlier top section. My underneath at my sides also has a tendency to be straight as well but I can coax that to curl.

Yep, my underlayer in the back ONLY is practically straight. Except for two weird little ringlets at the back "points" of my hairline at my neck. It's frustrating. And weird.

I'm the total opposite. My under layer is pretty curly but the middle outter layer of hair just falls straight for some reason. Its so annoying.

Mine isn't straight but it's certainly a pain, back underlayer. If I do my routine slowly taking my time and paying attention (watching in the mirror) I can get the back to look right. If I'm in a hurry some clumps are almost straight which looks a little silly with 3 straight clumps lol.

Daily styling in the morning has helped with this for me, though I guess it's an extreme measure. Because when the hair is first styled this hair is very gently wavy with ends a little curly, so it hides better. It's "wavy imposter" hair under there, I guess?
