I completely understand. Hair, especially black hair can be difficult to deal with. Since you have naturally curly hair, sport it. The natural look is in. One thing you might want to consider is twists. You can do this by buying afro-textured hair.
If you allow your natural hair to breathe, and get a professional trim, to cut your split ends, your hair will become more healthy. Putting a lot of heat in your hair can damage it. Make sure that your hair stays moist. Dry hair is more likely to break. Also, drinking water and taking vitamins will help your hair to become healthy.
By monitoring your nails and skin you can monitior the healthiness of your hair. So sport that natural look girl. Don't worry about it looking short. It is yours! However, if you get twists you can add the hair to make it longer. By the way, to keep it up make sure to wrap it with a scarf before you go to bed!
You can either go with your natural look, or try something different by trying the twists. I have actually considred getting twists myself. We will see how that goes!
I hope That Helps!
