LOC method questions

Anyone in the type 2 range do LOC method? I thought I would experiment because I cannot get my waves to feel soft.

Is it THE wrong time to try this, like is it a winter only routine?

I found a protein free cream to use in the C step, but quickly found out the cream doesn't encourage my waves, so I tried the LOC with a curl enhancer custard step and hard hold gel added and my hair ended up too producty feeling. So I tried again, without the custard but with la looks gel, and the result was a cleaner feel, but limp waves. So how do I get enhanced curls when the cream doesn't do it?

Also, I have to say I didn't get great softness yet.

Any advice is appreciated!
