Is there anyway to get my curls more uniform & a little looser?

Hi, I'm new to this site & I've really admired women w/naturally curly hair.

I've only worn my hair natural a a few of times & I get my hair pressed a lot. I had a perm when I was really young, but I grew that out 2 years ago, (I'm 16 years old).

I really want better curl definition & I want to be able to wear my hair naturally more often. It's sometimes hard to do that when you're in a high-school w/girls who wear a lot of weaves(not bashing; just an observation) & have nicer curls than I do. I just want to be proud of my hair.
I think you need to change your mindset of others having prettier curls than you do, because your curls, in their own unique way are pretty. You should try not to compare your hair to anyone else's, it'll always have you down if you do.

Also, do you know what your hair type, texture, porosity is? What's your hair routine like? What products are you using?

Lastly, did you cut off the chemically altered portion of your hair yet? That could help with how your hair falls when it's curly. Stay away from the heat as well, that's a guaranteed recipe for disaster if you're using too much heat.

I will stop comparing my hair to others. Thanks.

Idk, what "porosity" is or means, but according to the hair type index I'm a 4b/4c & my hair is thick & soft. I don't really have a set hair routine b/c my fam doesn't really have a lot of money to spare for hair products & salon visits. I do press my hair, like, every 2-3 weeks if I need it. I try to use little heat as possible, & I have a very dry scalp.

Sometimes its just a matter of finding the right styling aids, products and style for you and not your hair—which I'm sure is beautiful. I had to learn in order for my hair to be uniform, I have to style each say twist or braid in the same direction and even know how many actual twists I make per twist. For instance, I may wrap my hair around say 20 times per twist and it helps my hair stay uniform. That may help you as well.
