Hair is just not cooperating

Hello all,
Just had the hair analysis and have been using the recommended products for my hair properties, see siggy.

My hair did wonderful the first few days using Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut along with AOGPB as a rinse out. I've also been using the Aquage gel. I will say the Suave doesn't give me much slip and I just don't feel like I'm getting moisture.

With that being said, I believe this has thrown me into protein overload because I'm experiening very strawlike hair - despite the recommended use of protein for my fine hair.

Do any of you with similar properties - highlighted, fine, normal porosity & elasity have suggestions on what works for you.

I've been lurking all over this site but I'm just getting overwhelmed. Thanks.
3A, highlighted layered shoulder length
Texture: Fine Porosity: Normal Elasticity: Normal
Low poo: ABBA Pure Color Protect sulfate free poo
Co-wash: VO5 Blackberry Sage Tea and Strawberries and Cream
RO: Tresemme Naturals. Once a week mix this with a little AO GPN to give me a protein boost.
Styling: KCCC, Homemade Flax Seed Gelee, Aquage Defining Gel; BB Flax Gelee

    My hair loves protein, but it hates Suave coconut no matter how I use it - stringy, straw-like yet sort of tacky feeling.
    2C/3A/3B - modified CG - fairly fine now, normal/low porosity/normal elasticity

    Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

    HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!
