This sounds exactly like my hair!
I started out almost 1,5 years ago with 2a tailbone length hair. Now my hair is a mix from 2b/2c/3a and some days even 3b (especially round my ears) hair! It's mid-back now, so that might have something to do with it (I've had it cut at least half its original length since I started CG)
Some hair feels fine others feel coarse (canopy), the coarse ones act more like 2c. Confused already :-/? Well, I am at some days. LOL
I'll have to agree with Corinna about using less grabby products. At first this worked great for me, but these days my hair gets more volume and curl with less grabby products. You could say that when my hair's clumping too much, that pulls out the curl and makes my hair more wavy.
