Wow I could never tell your hair ever got flat or stringy from your pictures. Your curls are so clumpy and fat! Yup, don't give up. I'm sure there's got to be a method you might use to wear it wavy and maybe even without diffusing. If there's one thing I learn every time I pop into the 2 forum it's where there's a wave there's a way.
