Does this mean I need to cut my hair?

so at my roots and in the middle , ,y hair texture is 2b but at the ends my hair texture suddenly changes to 3b. is this happening due to damage ? ( I've been natural for 3 months now and did get a trim but I'm pretty sure I didn't get off all my damage )

It is not damage, some curly's have loose almost straight hair at the top and tighter curls near the ends. I wouldn't hurt to cut it but its not nessecary.

If it were the opposite and the tight curls were at  your roots and the loose ones at the ends it would be damage. Dry, damaged hair does not curl up tighter. You might just have a curl pattern (possible do to length and weight) that gets pulled out a bit at the root. If you want it to look a bit more uniform find someone who can cut curly hair in a dry state to shape it with layers that will release some weight. But DO NOT have someone cut it wet like you are going to blow it dry into some straight layered style. Your curls will likely not be in a flattering formation as an overall shape if you do this. Best!
It might be simply that your ends are *drier*. It's possible that there's still some damage/split ends, or new split ends because the ends are the oldest and driest. Can you use more conditioner on the ends and detangle carefully while you condition? If your hair is curlier on the ends but not dry or bushy, then yes, it's curlier on the bottom but not *damaged*.My own hair is 3A/3B but it sticks to my head up top if I don't dry it (with a diffuser) by bending over from my waist and drying the top that way. Even then, it looks a little smoother or straighter on top at times, except for when it had short layers.
