I'm new to naturallycurly.com. A description of my hairtype and routine are below. I just recently started using the Devacare products after my last haircut with a new stylist that I found through this website. My stylist recommended [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/DevaCare-No-Poo-p-465.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=devacurl-devacare-nopoo]DevaCare No-Poo[/buylink], and the first time I used it, then followed with One Condition and finished with ArcAngell and [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/AG-Recoil-p-24.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=ag-hair-cosmetics-recoil-curl-activator]AG re:coil[/buylink], my hair looked great and the curl was really nice. The next time I washed my hair and did the same routine, my hair didn't seem to respond as well and that has pretty much been the story every time I wash it.
Since my hair is very thick, when I wash my hair I use a lot of No-Poo and One Condition. I'm not sure if I'm doing it right, and my hair just doesn't seem to be responding the same as the first time I used No-Poo. I'm wondering if I should alternate No-Poo with Low-Poo every other time I wash, or perhaps I should use a little more finishing products.
Any advice for my type or routine? You can see pictures of my hair if you click on the link below...

2C, mixture of medium/coarse texture, with high porosity, normal elasticity, and high density (very thick)
my current routine is:
Jessicurl Hair Cleansing Cream
Jessicurl Too Shea! Extra Moisturizing Conditioner
Redken Fresh Curls Curl Refiner
Jessicurl Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment
wash twice weekly, rinse with conditioner every other day, deep condition once a week, use demi-permanent hair color (ammonia-free), use hood dryer or air-dry
