I went natural for years ago. I don't remember doing the big chop, I just remember getting my ends trimmed. Half of my hair is tightly coiled and has nice curls. There's parts that don't even have definition. I don't know if I should big chop. I'm really worried.

Most people with natural hair don't have the same hair type/pattern all over their head, most have at least two different curl patterns. Most of my head is very tightly coiled, then some parts a super loose wavy curls. It's random.
There IS a difference between just having two different curl patterns on your head, and still having relaxed/damaged hair. The relaxed/damaged hair would be on the ENDS and look scraggly and unhealthy. If none of your hair actually looks unhealthy then I'd say that's just how your hair is.
Try doing twist outs or bantu knot outs to make your look like the same curl pattern all over.1
