If you imagine cutting through the hair and looking down it, the cross-section can appear from more or less circular to a flattened oval shape. If the shape of the cross-section is quite flat, you are more likely to have wavy or curly hair (like a piece of ribbon). If instead it is round, you are likely to have straighter hair.

My Mum always said that eating bread crusts makes your hair curly. However, I know that it is inheritted. Your parents may not have curly hair but a past ansestor will have done. You can inherit all sorts of strange things too like tongue rolling and the ability to smell freishas (flower.)
As for it looking like a big bush, are you sure you are looking at your head?
