Unhappy My curls need your help!

I am new here. I have been reading and absorbing all I can. I have been poo-less for about 2 weeks now. I use Suave Lavender condish for cowash and usually as a leave in also. I have made my own FSG and had great results the first two times I tried it, but it didnt do so well the 3rd time. I added epsom salt too, but no enhanced curls. I have tried changing only one product or method at a time so I can see what is going to work or not. First my curls seemed to frizzy, then too conditioned, and now , just blah. I used an egg protein treatment, then the next day, baking soda/vinegar rinses. The soda and vinegar seemed to help enhance my curls but they are still not where I know they can be. On humid days I can get very tight ringlets, but frizz too. Now, I just get waves with a few ringlets underneath.

I guess I would like some advice on what to try as far as new products and how often to bs/vinegar rinse. Since my hair doesn't seem to dry, I don't know if I need a leave in. I have tried Samy curl serum, (i think thats the name), bioterra curl creme (not too crazy about the scent) and my FSG. I have AVG but have not used it yet. Do you use that as a gel or just add to FSG?

Sorry to ramble. I just wish my curls were happier like yours all seem to be!

Ok, today was a good hair day. I watched the video of Mysteryflavored and followed her technique with my products (not KCCC) and my hair was amazing today. I think my hair does not like suave conditioner (I used Giovanni) and it has been too dry when I scrunch my product in. I cannot believe the difference today. Thanks Mysteryflavored for your awesome video!!

I apply all of my products using mysteryflavored's technique--feel that it really helped. My hair also likes the more natural products. When I switched from cowash, after six months, to using natural soap bars to cleanse and that made the biggest difference for me.
