Am I the only one having a hard time adjusting to 4c hair?

Recently big chopped and I'm finding it hard to accept I don't have a real curl pattern? I love my hair regardless but just a lil thought..

I guess you should just embrace what you have!  You might want to chat with some of the 4c curlies over on CurlTalk— they probably have some good advice and help.
4c hair has one of the tightest curl pattern no VISIBLE curls most of the time. They are there, but they are small and barely elongated. When doing a "wash and go" apply eco styled gel (maximum hold) onto DRY hair. do NOT wet your hair. Or try applying gel to DRY, STRETCHED hair. Indigochild613 and Tracy Ann both have tutorials on how to do it
