AM I DOING SOMETHING WRONG HERE??

Hi! I'm a newbie to this forum... i usually hang out on lhcf (long hair care forum) or lbhc (long black hair care), but anyway... im a 3c. i have a few 4a curls, but not really enough to make a difference. my hair now brushes my shoulders when wet
it hangs great and looks pretty good when wet, ohhh but when it's dry!!! it looks strange. the canopy is always fuzzy fuzzy fuzzy, and the way the curls hang and form is just odd. i can never get the right amount of volume at the roots either. it will be too fuzzy, lumpy and flat in different areas or it will be too slick and crunchy. i think i need to learn what my hair likes all over again!!! is this just the inbetween stage or what?
The crown of my hair gets fuzzy if I get to aggressive with the towel after showering.

It's best to manipulate your hair as little as possible when drying. Once it's almost dry, you can manipulate it gently while using a diffuser to get more volume where you want it though.

Sometimes I do this and I feel like I might have gotten too much in, so I let the shower hit the top of my head for just a second or less, then hang head upside down and squish again. Then I try to do as little as possible, unless I'm going to do finger curls all over (which I'm not doing right now).

sooo ok... do you think sectioning would help? with a leave in and gel or lighter grease? cause the suave aloe frizz gel is not working how im using it. and this hanging thing!!! i think im missing spots so they puff and make the outside hang all weird.
i can't exactly afford a digi cam... im in the process of getting pics developed, but i need to get them in to Walgreens 1-Hr Photo! Last time I checked it was "under repair" or something, so... no. hmmm. i have an id pic but its not like a close up, can't really see my hair. all i can tell you is my hair is VERRRY THICK. you can see my fotki if you want to see how thick (childhood pics) ranges from a 3b to a 4a. however, my mom blow-dried and pressed my hair so much that it just poofed out whenever water hit it, like it had been blowdried. so no curly pics. mostly wavy-type curls, only corkscrew at the end. which looks quite strange.
