New and needing help

Hi, What a great site. I have been reading for a month and have tried many different routines. I am a 3a curly with baby fine hair. I love the idea of the no poo method, but it seems to weigh my hair down. Right now I am washing with a no cone conditioner, I've tried leaving it in and rinsing it out thoroughly and everything in between. I've tried lemon juice and ACV and baking soda. My hair is getting curlier, but it looks wet, even when it is not and my scalp feels icky. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

Hair: 2a or 3a (not sure), very porous and fine as frog hair
Day 1: Cowash and condition with AO GPB, ACV Rinse,
Co-Kra gel (this stuff is fantastic)

Day 2: KCKT, KCCC, plop, KCCC, plop again, air dry
Day 3: Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Coil Jam
Day 4: IAGirl's PT, KBB DT, FSG

Co-Kra gel is my own concoction of okra boiled in coconut milk. It is a cross between FSG and KCCC and leaves my hair very soft and shiny

    What products are you using? What are their ingredients? I co-wash with VO5 Vanilla Mint Tea, it's a clarifying CO. I'm able to get my hair & scalp really clean with it & whatever products I use afterward give me great hold.
