curly hair help

Hi, I'm new here and in desperate need of hair advice. I've struggled with curly hair for as long as I can remember. I do have the occasional decent hair day, but that's usually when it's on the shorter side (a few inches below the shoulder). I prefer a longer length, but the longer it is, the less curls and the more frizz. Is there any way that I can keep the length and still have curl definition?

I'm pretty sure that I'm a 3a. My hair tends to be on the dry/coarse side. It's pretty thick and takes several hours to dry completely. I started thinning my hair out about a year or so ago. I read a few topics about how that can cause frizz when it grows out, but I actually think it helped improve my frizz slightly. It definitely made it more manageable.

My hair routine- I wash it every two days, sometimes three. I shampoo the top part only and leave in the conditioner for ten minutes or so. I use deep conditioner once a week. I air dry only, put one product in (lately Paul Mitchell Super Sculpt) and twist pieces and leave it alone until it's dry.
fine, wavy hair with lazy waves. Sometimes lanky spiral curls underneath when the weath is very humid. My waves are capricious like me! Presently using Burt's Bees condish, FOTE AVG with honey or Mop Top gel.

Off topic, but I just noticed that it says I joined in 2007, have 114 posts, and a signature that is definitely not mine. Did I accidentally take someone's account when I registered? I just registered a few minutes ago.
