Need help for more volume!!!

Ok, so this is my first time on here! And I'm hoping to find ways to have a lot more volume in my hair. I have 2c type of curly hair where it's wavy/straight at my roots and turns into spiral/ringlets at the bottom. And my hair is about 5 inches past my shoulder (when I pull my hair straight) so its actually pretty long. I wash my hair every other day with sulfate free shampoo and condition my hair every day. I use Moroccan oil intense curl cream and oil treatment, and Jane Carter leave in conditioner spray. I "plop" my hair with a cotton long sleeve shirt overnight so I have curlier hair in the morning, but then through mid day, it goes limp again!!! Does anyone have tips for me?! Thx!

    Those products are all pretty heavy, are you sure they're not weighing you down? I have fine waves/curls and I like volume. I use a light curl creme (CCCCL) and lately I've been experimenting with mousse, and I'm loving the results. Also going CG has helped a lot with overall curl formation.
