Straight...from like...3 years ago. My mother always had to do it, I could never reach the back of my head, and even with her straightening it, it took like 2 hours.
When straight it was so straw-like and whispy and wouldn't stay in an elastic or clip.

And then curly! Much better.
3c....and plenty of it.
Trying to survive with an Engineering major and excessively curly hair in the USA's third most dangerous city.

Good to my hair, good to my wallet:
Suave Naturals, Trader Joe's, Lustrasilk, EcoStyler!!!
