I picked up one technique/ product at a time when I started, until eventually I came to accept CG works best as a full system, with logical modifications if that is not working. You are identifying that you need mineral oil to seal, yet you are already using silicones to seal. CG hair clumps due to hydration but you are not using the products that work towards that goal.
I don't think you totally have to be CG, but I agree with the last part of this. Your hair will only curl if it's moisturized. People need varying levels of moisture, but generally MO and vinegar aren't going to moisturize most people's hair. You probably need to be using a pretty good conditioner, and clarifying occasionally to make sure that moisture isn't obstructed by buildup.
