As a child I had type 3A, and now type 2A on top and 2B underneath. Are my curls gone forever?

When I was 7 or 8, I started to lose my curls.  I went from 3A to 2C in middle school.  I am now a 2A on top and 2B underneath.  I have always loved my beautiful curls (only straightining my hair once or twice a year), and now I am afraid that I have lost them for good.  Please help me get my curls back!

It's possible they're gone for good, but it's also possible they'll come back.  How old are you? Curl pattern tends to change throughout life; some people say it changes every 7 years. It can also change because of hormonal changes: puberty, pregnancy, bc pills, menopause. Also, have you changed your hairstyle? Sometimes longer, all-one-length hair can pull the curl out temporarily. You might want to find a curl-expert stylist; she might be able to find some curl in there! :)
