I agree it's really difficult to make suggestions without a detailed description of your routine and products. One thing I would suggest though is pre-surf protection. Running a good oil through just...

I need to try that HE gel.. I do like their spray gel and find it does not gunk up my hair nearly as bad as others I've tried. Achieving good root curl seems to be key for me, I always have better...

The front appears to be layered.. that's probably why it has more curl, less weight to hold it down. For conditioning just the ends try putting it in a ponytail and then only conditioning the "tail",...

I guess I should define "smashing". My curls are large and spiral, like a spring. When I plop I get flat s-shapes, instead of a 3D coil. It literally smashes them like flattening a can. I have wussie...

Yep, I actually get them at the auto supply store (crazy I know). I like the ones that are "furry" on one side, I find the furry texture keeps my curls together better.. and they are much larger than...

Based on your photo you have more curl than I do.. I'm a pretty typical 3A (sidewalk chalk sized spiral curls that straighten easily).. you look like a 3B to me (sharpie sized well-defined, springy,...

Well, that's weird. Your hair sounds very similar to mine - now I don't know if I should try a protein treatment or go protein-free.
Can you recommend me some products? I'm moving to...

Diffusing fine hair

I have very fine 3A hair. Porous, generally weak curls (pull out easily with tension), hate protein. Also have build up/breakout issues with butters, coconut oil, argan oil, and polyquats.

I have some pretty nasty cowlicks as well, one right in the front and other in the back at the crown. To make the issue worse they seem to like to move around each time I wash so I'm never quite sure...
