I have super curly hair that was wavy until I was 13 when it turned curly (at puberty). Neither of my parents have curly hair nor my grandparents. My great grandmother had curly hair (Irish). One of my sons has kind of curly hair but nothing like mine. I have several 3rd cousins that have curly hair similar to mine but hardly any closer kin to my great grandmother that has it. I think only one of her sons had curly hair, maybe 2, she had 6 and 6 daughters. I don’t think any of the girls had curly hair. My grandmother, her daughter, did not.
