I'm either a 2C or 3A. Hair is currently shoulder length. How long can I go &maintain curls? Layers?

While trying to grow my  2C /3A  hair out, how long can I go and maintain my curls? What kind of layers do I possibly need? Weather/ humidity easily influence my hair and it's easy to straighten. Any advice would be great! Never even considered my hair curly until a couple of years ago! Help!

Your curls look a lot like mine. I included a pic (from several years ago) of when my hair was short like yours. It is almost to my waist now.  Mine seems to hold its curl better when its longer. I have longer layers in a V cut.  I originally had these layers put in when I was straightening all the time, but it works great with my curly hair too.
