Question Hair won't hold curl?

Can anybody think of why my mix of 3a hair would stop holding it's curl? My hair is suddenly fluffy and dull and won't hold a curl no matter how much product I use! I am getting very frustrated! The only thing I have changed in the past 2 weeks is I finally got SSCEJ again.
I am desperate for any help you can give me!

I have 3a hair that has been very fluffy and undefined recently, seemed really dry and driving me crazy. Last night I used curl junkie repair me and wow what's difference today, curls all back and bouncy and less frizzy. Really needed protein.
That's just my hair, but I understand the frustration and hope you find a solution.

When mine does that it usually means I need a protein treatment.
Hair: 2a or 3a (not sure), very porous and fine as frog hair
Day 1: Cowash and condition with AO GPB, ACV Rinse,
Co-Kra gel (this stuff is fantastic)

Day 2: KCKT, KCCC, plop, KCCC, plop again, air dry
Day 3: Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Coil Jam
Day 4: IAGirl's PT, KBB DT, FSG

Co-Kra gel is my own concoction of okra boiled in coconut milk. It is a cross between FSG and KCCC and leaves my hair very soft and shiny

I'll second the protein. When my hair gets "fluffy", it's a sure sign that I need a PT. I love IAgirls PT! It's easy to make, works like a charm, and is inexpensive to make.
fine, low/ normal porosity, med density, normal elasticity.
Dislikes: Aloe by itself, polyquat 4
Low poo (used rarely): CJ Curl Assurance
Co-wash: CJ Daily Fix
Condish: CJ Beauticurls Strengthening
PT: IA Girls PT w/ mag. sulfate, CJ Repair Me
DT: CJ Rehab or Deep fix

Default Hair won't hold curl?

Protein can help, but don't overdo it - otherwise the hair will become dry, exacerbating the problem. Sometimes all the hair needs is a deep moisturizing treatment. With my hair(2c-3a mix)my hair cutter advised me to do three times as many deep moisturizing treatments as protein treatments over all. That means that I only do a protein treatment once a month, usually before I color.
