My curls are over clumping
This is a photo from several months ago, so my hair is a few inches longer now. My hair is 3b, low to medium density, fine/soft texture. I've been reading a lot about clumping curls so that it improves definition and reduces frizz, but my curls are wrapping around each other creating these tubes of hair. So I end losing definition and it makes my hair look flat, thinner, and lifeless. If I had more individual curls, then my hair could have more volume. I'm wondering if it's due to my haircut, how I'm styling, the products I use? I use a curl cream like devacurl super cream and sometimes use the devacurl gel - but my hair doesn't always like the gel. I've tried the devacurl volume foam and my hair doesn't really like that. Would like more suggestions!
