One side has root curl, the other doesn't!

After showering this morning, I put in gel, plopped for 5 minutes, then diffused for a few minutes. I then let it air dry some more, then I diffused a little more so I didn't have to wait so long for it to dry (pixiecurl diffused). The left side of my hair looks pretty good...curls start at the roots and look decent pretty much all the way down. But, the right side is straight for about 2" or so, then it starts to curl! It looks stupid, imo. It almost looks over-curled...like I let it sit in hot rollers too long, lol! My hair is about chin-length when curly and about collar-bone length straight. But, I do have layers, so my hair looks really weird. I am just not happy with it at all today! I can't seem to figure out diffusing...it's either over-curled or not curled enough

Excuse the way I look...first thing in the morning pre-makeup!

Front view...just looks messy!


Left side looks pretty good


Right side looks really weird! See how the curl doesn't start as high up as the left side?
I think every curly at some point has to get used to the idea that our hair has a mind of its own Sometimes it just wants to do what it wants to do, no matter what techniques/products we use.

Your curls look fabulous and not weird at all.

Maybe if you clipped the roots while diffusing to give some lift?? I just clipped last night while air drying and sleeping and I like the lift I got. I'm just discovering all this, but I think your curls are LOVELY.
Is your hair parted on the side? It looks like it in one of the pictures but I can't tell for sure.

AAR - if it is, mine is better on the heavier side. I think my side part gives the illusion of better root curl because when I part in the middle it's about the same on both sides.
