Long hair losing curls
 
When my hair was shorter it was nice and curly but now my hair is the length of my butt and I'm losing my curl its turn into long curls and it isn't as curly. The root of my hair is going straight whilst my ends go curly is there a solution to fix my hair? I would like it to be all curly. My hair isn't much damaged as I haven't straightened it in months. Any suggestions?

Maybe try pinning it up in a lose ball until it fully dries

Support the weight of your lengths as much as possible whilst it dries, they are heavy full of water. Overnight plop, wear a hoodie and pop the lengths in the hood, clip the roots.

Yeah, I was going to suggest this next. Plopping. There are a few videos on YouTube if you're not familiar with the term.

Since your hair is that long I am giessing is the gravity effect that pulls down your hair, just think of it this way, the more hair, the heavier!
Also it might also be the effect of letting you hair air dry while down because the water makes your locks heavier which pulls them down even more.
Try scrunching your hair and blowdry with a difuser using a cool setting which will help you get your hair dry faster and get your pretty curls.
Good luck.

Is your hair 3B or 3C?

One thing I'd suggest is to read Lorraine Massey's book "Curly Girl," where she talked about the actual structure of curly hair. I learned that the differences between 3A versus 3B/C are greatly affected by length, and everyone's hair responds differently to various lengths. I am wondering if your hair is the type that curls more when it's shorter, but straightens when it's longer. In contrast, my hair is a 3A where it is curlier with length, and straighter short. At one time when I had a chin length bob, it was so straight anyone who hadn't known me before the cut wouldn't have believed I had naturally curly hair.

I am also thinking your hair would fare better with a halfway down the back length, or even waist length, rather than to the behind length.
