    The shampoo is probably drying your hair out, which will lead to frizzy, undefined curls. If you can find a gentler shampoo (some drug stores sell Activate, which I've heard is okay), or ditch shampoo altogether and go the CG way, that'll help a lot. The leave-in may not be providing you with enough moisture, too, so you may want to invest in a rinse-out conditioner that offers more moisture.

    I feel like the last person that should giving advice considering I'm struggling so much with my own hair right now, but here's a few great suggestions that were given to me...

    Maybe too many products? What about trying just the gel or the mousse, instead of both together? Too many styling products for me = weighed down & less curls.

    Does anything you're using have silicones or proteins? Some people are sensitive to those.

    Have you ever clarified? I know that helps me alot when I need to kind-of "start over".

    Have you tried plopping or diffusing?

    Hope that helps a bit!
    Type: Course & thick. According to everyone's input, 2c w/ 3a potential.
    Color: Brown w/ highlights & annoying grays which I color.
    Length: Past shoulders w/ layers.
    Issues: Dryness, knots & more dryness!
    Poo: Deva Lo-Poo 1 x week, Clarify 1-2 x month
    CO Wash: Suave Tropical Coconut (but looking for something else b/c I suspect protein issues)
    Condish: GVPCB, LVPNG
    Leave-Ins: Was loving KBB Milk & Nectar, but overused them. Usually just leave-in some of what I CO with.
    Styling: Biolage Gelee
