Great curls but producty feel

I'm hoping you can help me with a problem I'm having! I've found a couple different ways to get really beautiful, relatively frizz-free curls, but no matter what I do my hair always feels rough and producty to the touch. As in, if I touch a couple of curls, my fingers come away a little greasy. The curls also feel stiff in my hands. Here's what I'm using right now:

-Occasional (1x per month or less) lo-poo with Trader Joe's TTT shampoo
-Daily cowash with Suave pomegranate
-Rinse-out rotates between GVPCB, AOHR, and Garnier Triple Nutrition, depending on my moisture and protein needs

As for styling, I've found great (visual) success with using GVPCB for conditioner-only styling. Also, I just bought and tried [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Knot-Today-p-207.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-knot-today-leaveindetangler]KCKT[/buylink] + [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] and was even happier with the curls I got from that, but again with the stiff, producty feeling! What gives?

I'm really at a loss here, and I'd be so grateful for any help you could give me. TIA!
