Curly hair confusion

k so i was having a bad curly 2 weeks , my hair wouldnt not curl right or even try to go wavy ..im a wavy but can get curls galore at times. so i decided to get a trim , i had layers for a while and my hair was growing long . so i got almost two inches cut so now i barely have layers but just a lil is still there. On my next cut it should be all one length . I was complaining to one of my stylist ( i have two stylists for my hair ) and telling her i couldnt get curls in my hair , shes all 1 your hair is getting long and 2 u have layers which tend to pull out your curl. I went straight for a few days cuz my hair just wanted to go straight lately. The other day since it was so hot i decided to try to go curly and whoa! I had curls once again!
So now im so confused. When i had layers my hair was nice and curly , then went yucky after a while , now i barely have any layers and its so curly. what gives ?

Maybe just getting a good trim on the length helped get some of the weight off of your hair overall. That's about the only thing I can think of.

That's happened to me before. If my hair just isn't curling nicely or much at all, I straighten it for a short while and when I go curly again, it is as if my hair has suddenly remembered that it is supposed to curl!
I never heard that layers pull out a curl though, in fact I had layers put in to enhance my curl and it has!

2c or 3a Cut most of my hair off in July '12 and am working on regrowing it.
I've noticed two main reason my hair won't curl - it's too long/heavy, and/or it's over-conditioned. Straightening helps when my hair is over-conditioned b/c it dries it out a bit. Maybe it's a combo of these two factors that lead to your issues, and that's why straightening and a good cut helped. Just a thought!

Weird cuz i had layers done a few times just to get a better curl and its helped , but lately my hair was just not curling right . so when i had it cut it just went curly , i barely have the layers now so thats why im confused , i guess my hair is just plain weird and has a mind of its own nowadays .

Interesting. My hair has been growing out the last 6 months and the longer it gets, the more curl it has. I'm getting round ringlets now. But layers definitely help for me, and I just got sidebangs this week which cut down on triangle effect.
