When will my curls hang?

So my hair is 3C and when it is straight it is almost to my waist, as seen in the picture.  When it is wet, it is almost BSL but when it is dry it is still shoulder length, same place it was dry two years ago when it was APL straight.  I must say I HATE my shrinkage.  I was tempted to texturize my hair because I want it to look long without having to straighten it.  I hoped that if I was patient it would hang once it got long.  I don't think that is going to happen.  Does anyone have some tips or inspiration to help me be patient?  I see so many pictures of naturals with what looks like my hair type and their curls hang down.  Does anyone have experience with this and can tell me how long it took for their hair to hang down.  Or how do I loosen my curl pattern?  Thanks.
