Need Help! My hair is awful!

HI!
I have stopped straightening my hair, got it cut to my chin, and have been doing the curly girl routine since February, so for 9 months. My hair has grown out a little, I have colored my hair twice in those months time. My hair just looks so bad, that I can never wear it down. I have read so many of these boards, and tried a lot of products. I can't seem to make my hair look good.

My routine is I wash with conditioner, usually suave coconut, or suave something. Then I deep condition with Generic Biolage deep conditioning. I rinse that out, put in Kinky curly knot today- leave in, and rinse with cold water, a little. Then I put in curl keeper and garnier fructis pure clean gel. I plop, and diffuse. My hair is two different textures, fine on top and coarse underneath. I literally have not worn my hair down curly at all. I put it up or wear a headband. It dries so weird. The underneath front hair doesn't curl up as much, and so looks like different lengths in the back. I can't wear it down- Because this is what it looks like down!!! (see picts below)

So my questions are- do I just need a hair cut? What other products should I try? Any other suggestions??? Thanks so much in advance!!!

    You only need a cut if you have bad split ends. But its uneven so yea
    But I think your hair got damaged cause you dyed it twice & maybe from diffusing it on a high temp. Plus it sounds like you manipulate it too much

    Thanks...
    Yeah, it is uneven, just because the cut i got, she angled it to make it longer in the front, but my problem is my front hair doesn't curl as much as my back.

    I will try less manipulation and see if that helps some. I think I'll try a protein treatment too after reading around.
