Hair grows out damaged and "wiry" - need serious help

Hello. I'm new here at curl talk. I was hoping to get some advice on how to make my curls grow out more healthy.

I live a relatively healthy lifestyle. I drink a lot of water and eat lots of good foods like fruit and vegetables, exercise regularly and get a good night's sleep every night. So I don't know what the problem is!!!

My hair grows out damaged and weak. Although it's very dark and pretty thick it's not easy to see, but when I shower, my hair pulls out easily and gets tangled. It's frizzy too, unless I put frizz control cream in it, which only lasts about a day because I when I go to bed I wake up in the morning with a nest head. My hair breaks easily. When I look at my hair strands individually they do not curl "smoothly" but are very "wrinkled" and wiry.

I use Aussie moistening shampoo and conditioner, Aussie anti-frizz cream, sometimes Garnier Fructis leave in hair conditioner and/or curl sculpting serum. I'm apprehensive about changing shampoo products because I find that when I switch, the transition makes my hair fall out for a while before my hair gets used to the new shampoo.

I use a pretty good comb to brush out my hair. It's not a really "wide" wide tooth comb but it does the job. I'm thinking I may have to buy a bigger one though.

I wash my hair every day. I know a lot of people have said this is bad but I find that if I go a day without washing my hair it looks frizzy and feels awful. Like I said, I wake up with "nest" hair and I'd prefer it if no one else saw it. I'd really appreciate some general advice on how to not get nest hair when I sleep and keep it looking good all day long so I won't necessarily have to wash it every day.

Tomorrow I'm going to get a hair cut. I'm going to get bangs and lots of layers, hoping that this will help to keep it from tangling so much and that it will actually create a nice shape around my face.

At this moment my hair is just one big, frizzy, frustrating mess. I can't go a day without having to do something to it. I wish I could just wake up and have perfect, smooth, glossy curls. Unfortunately this is not the way life works.

Please help. All advice would be greatly appreciated.
Welcome.

It would be good if you could figure out your hair properties.
