Looking for new products, possibly new routine

So I got my 2b hair layered a couple weeks ago, and it's curling naturally a lot more now, which I really like, but lately it's been looking so blah! My curls/waves look deflated and kinda frizzy. I don't dye my hair or use heat styling, and I clarify every week. I've tried lots of different brands, from Abba to Pureology to Giovanni, and even recently tried the Fekkai Luscious Curls lotion. Is my hair lacking in moisture or something? Would appreciate any insight or suggestions (and sorry for the paragraph! lol). Thanks!

Meg :)

    I feel that its due to the change in Season that has caused you to see more of a dullness return to your hair. Winter weather can wreak havoc on hair if it is not being properly hydrated. I would suggest you washing your hair with a mild cleanser, following it up with a hydrating and detangling conditioner, using a moisturizing styling product that will not only help with frizz control and definition but will leave your curls looking more manageable.

    Remember your hair needs hydration and not weight to it because of the hairtype that you possess.

    Here's what I would recommend for you to give a try from CurlMart:

    Curl Junkie Chamomile and Jasmine Conditioning Shampoo
    Curl Junkie Give 'em The Slip! Instant Conditioner
    Curl Junkie Hibiscus and Banana Honey Creme Leave-In Conditioner/Fine
    Curl Junkie Intense Protection Leave-In Conditioner-Fine

    And if you desire more hold to your hair you can always apply styling gel over either of the Curl Junkie leave-ins to finish off your style with. These products are all designed to be compatible with curly hair that is of the Type 2 variety.

    Products in my current regime: Nioxin Scalp Therapy Shampoo, ORS Replenishing Pak, Curls Whipped Cream, Curls Souffle, Curls Spiral Curls Cream, Curls Milkshake, Curls Quenched, BB(Bonner Brothers) Growth Lotion
