Niquella, I checked out the link you posted and I'm not sure if that's the issue but I'll give it a try it with tae's suggestion of protein

NoodleNaps, you may be right that it is just a different curl pattern but I just want to be sure that it's healthy as well

Tae082, I did just recently get a trim but my hairdresser is helping me grow out my layers so she didn't take off much from that section. That may be apart of it too considering that the top few inches of this section curl nicely after I finish styling, they may just be frizzing up with the not so nice hair on the bottom while brushing.

I'll give all the suggestions a try and let you know how they turn out. Wish me luck ladies and thanks again for your input!
