Default Stringy curls

I've been using CJ CCCCLite and CIAB for some months now...and after air drying most of the way, I diffuse for a few minutes to get more volume. I've been very happy with the results until lately I'm getting stringier curls; any thoughts as to what the problem might be? I usually have full 3b curls...

Buildup? Maybe try clarifying and see if it helps? Try a different styler--maybe there's been a change in the weather.

Have you done a protein treatment or deep treatment? If its not a result of build up, I wouldn't be surprised if your hair needed more protein followed by moisture. What are your hair properties and what other products do you use?

Thanks for the suggestions! I did a clarifying poo, then a deep conditioner; Marsha from CJ suggested that I not use both the leave-in and CCCLite before CIAB--and voila la! My curls are back to normal, not stringy at all! So I think my hair was a bit dry, because it's much softer and fuller now. Thank you!
