Curl pattern is confounding...

So the top of my head at the crown and at the front going about halfway down my head has insane root curl and then the ends kind of just fizzle out. Then the underside is straight near the roots curls about halfway down and then it's random-some curl some straight.

Has anyone seen this? Is this a sign of "gets curvier with length" ? I had shorter hair and some pieces were nearly straight at times...
When you say that the area that has root-curl fizzles out at the ends, do you think this might be due to damage of some kind (i.e. have you had a relaxer, or over-done it with heat styling, etc.)? And are you CG?
And do you know what your hair properties are (porosity, texture, etc.)?
I'm not trying to bombard you with questions, but the answers to these might help to find a solution ad to why this is happening.

I have high porosity hair and got a cut about 3 months ago. I haven't ever had heat damage that I know of or a stylist has told me. and I'm not CG. Just doesn't work for me.

When I say fizzle i mean that the root of the curl is a little tube of hair and then the ends kind of become a single clump of hair that still twirls but it just is like....a collapsed curl lol
Oh and no relaxers ever. I've put highlights in my hair once and that has been the extent of any chemical treatments to my hair. And my hair is fine.
Hmmm, well given what you have said my only recommendation is to try a protein treatment, followed by a deep conditioning. Sometimes protein can really perk up fine and high-porosity curls! And if you have been using silicone-heavy conditioners, you should probably use a good strong clarifying shampoo before both treatments, then protein, then deep condish. I hope others chime in here as well.
