You may be using too much. At first, I had a tendency to put too much on and I found that my hair did get stringy rather than perk up. Now I spritz just four times, bend over and scrunch, then kind of spread my fingers out at my scalp and rustle through my hair. Stand up and usually leave it be.
The other thing that works for me is to spritz and use a tiny bit of gel to scrunch the ends.
Perhaps you need a curl refresher spray with more oil or moisturizers in it? Innersense makes a curl spray, I believe it is a leave-in detangler, that works as a refresher spray. It has more moisture in it.
Maybe try a bit of aloe vera gel? I have been doing that more this summer and I think that works for me also.
Growing out my curls. White hair, fine to medium texture but a lot of it. Low to medium porosity. Botticelli curls -- 2c/3a mix. My hair loves protein.
