My two cents: Slow down and simplify. You are doing SO much at once it's impossible to tell what works and what doesn't. Get back to basics. Three products. A cowash/leave-in, a rinse out, and a gel or mousse. Just use those. Then, if you want to try a new product or method, try one thing at a time. And use it for a few days to see if it works. Then you will know if it makes a difference or not. If you test out a new method, a new conditioner, and a new product all in the same week you will have no idea what is working or why.
