In need of some serious insight.. my ends are bushy and frizzy and I don't know why?

Hello natural sisters,

i have been natural for about 4 years but always, I mean ALWAYS, got it blow dried and flat ironed. Only recently, specifically two weeks ago, I started wearing it in its curly state. It has a nice texture, never gave me any issues, very manageable and the ends were behaved, smooth and springy. I did a wash and go on Saturday night. I teased it and wore it super big... it was cute.... but when I went to wash it yesterday it was a nightmare detangling...but to make it worse my ends on my right side are bushy... I have no idea what I did... I am scared i damaged my hair but not sure how... the only thing I did differently was I did not twist it after I washed it on Sat. I just let it air dry, I did a light blow dry for volume, and I didn't section it when I washed it yesterday. Other than that every product was the same... I hate seeing my bushy frizzy ends.. Any ideas what went wrong and if I can fix it?

    I know if I tease or pick out my hair (I'm African American), my ends will be frizzy or bushy.. Also, if I don't smooth my leave in conditioner & styling product to my ends my hair will be frizzy. How hydrated is your hair? Dehydrated hair can result in bushy hair.

    Were you rough when you teased the hair? Maybe the cuticle needs smoothing down?
