i think you need to simplfy your routine, try to use other stuff or another way that wont take as long. and moving over seas, also remember that the climate will be alot different too so that might do a number on your hair as well.

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
