Thinning & less curly?!

I really need any tips on how to make my hair more volumous and curly. I have 2 a/b hair and the top 2-3 inches is straight because I normally put my hair in a high ponytail . I want it to be curly from the top too! My hair is 2 inches or so under my shoulders. I'm thinking of cutting it 2 inches.. I'm also trying scrunching it while in the shower, and plopping after the shower for about 20 minutes. I also get a lot of frizz after I plop..Any help??? I really need it!!!

    What's your current routine and products? Are you CG and if so, how long have you been CG?

    2c/M/ii, healthy, random kinks, waist length, platinum black!
    Wash routine: sometimes coconut oil treatment, CO wash with Suave, rinse, GVP Hair Reconstructor, rinse, LI Suave, plop, air-dry :happy2:
    Non-wash days: Smooth hair with water and Suave, sometimes olive oil to seal
    Bad for me: Phenoxyethanol irritates scalp, Distearyldimonium Chloride & Quaternium-87 straighten hair
    Holy Grail Conditioners, Suave Naturals with Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine!

    My routine is just to put herbal essence moouse when I get outta the shower, then the next day I wouldn't shower but apply abut of water to my hair then add a leave-in. Then the routine starts over again! What's a CG?

    CG is curly girl routine, basically using sulfate and silicone free products.

    You don't use any shampoo or conditioner? What's your leave-in? How do you handle your hair when you style it: scrunch, plop, clip, braid, upside down, etc?

    I do use shampoo and conditioner. I scrunch in my moouse upsidedown then plop it for about 30 minutes. I don't use the CG routine

    With such kind of hairs it is very difficult to maintain, but no need to worry. You can try as many hairstyles as you can, bomb twist can be good option for you.
