Hair Dilemma- Curly or Straight?

Ok, time for me to get all vulnerable and ask for some honest opinions.  Here's the deal: my hair is changing.  Yes, it's getting grayer, but it's also getting wavy/curly.  It's been a slow process over the last few years.  I have been straightening it because it wasn't quite pretty and I didn't know what else to do with it.  So over the last few weeks, I have decided to try embracing my curls and see if I like it.  This is totally different for me.  My hair usually has no style and I try not to pay more than $10 for a haircut.  I really don't care that much about my hair.  So here are some pictures (the last 3 are iPad pics, so they're not great).  I don't wash my hair everyday, so it looks a bit different from day to day.

So here's why I like it curly:
1.  I don't have to straighten my hair- less heat = good!  
2.  Takes less time to get ready because of #1.  I just spritz on some water and scrunch it a little.
3.  Humid days don't matter anymore :)
4.   Maybe my hair has a little interest now?

What I don't like:
1.  I have to use a little product in my hair to keep it from being fluffy.  I'm not quite used to that yet.

So what do you think?  Can I get away with letting my hair do it's own thing?  I am totally open to any tips from those of you with similar hair as well! 
My hair is also longer than it has been in quite some time.  I think I need to get my it trimmed and add in some more layers too.  Maybe next week...

I love it curly personally, I think it's pretty and sooo much easier to manage. Keep it curly!

Holy Moly lady- you're hair is beautiful (and long)! I really, honestly like it like this. Embrace it, it's a nice change. My hair is doing the opposite, it's becoming straight. Only now have I begun to appreciate the natural waves I used to have! The good thing is that you can straighten it when you want a different look still. So cute! Did I tell you I just hacked all my hair off? I need to send you an e-mail.....

i love the curl! on days you want to do something different, you could straighten it but it's much easier to let it curl : )
