Heavy Is The Head That Wears The Crown

I'm in a struggle season with my hair.  It feels both too long and too short to fall naturally, fit my face and look good on me to me.  Also, as my hair grows, my curl pattern is revealing itself to be a slim straw set-like spiral and i find myself wishing for big loopy, fuller curls. 

 

I remember the last time my hair was about this length a few years ago...
