I've accepted the fact that I have coarse hair. And I'm entirely too disenchanted with the whole relaxing/keratin business to bother with that route to "fix" it.
But my issues with it have somewhat...

Erm, this may or may not be possible. If your hair is weighed down (I've never heard of the products that you use) by heavier products, you may be able to get "curlier" hair with an ACV rinse, but...

I low-poo once a month, and ACV about once a month. Another alternative is dry shampoo.

However: Honestly, I wouldn't say that your approach has crossed out all shampoos. I don't know what shampoo...

To be perfectly honest, 4c is not sufficient information to give helpful recommendations. Things like porosity, density, and strand thickness would be much helpful to know, and you can find...

I'm fairly sure that Aussie Moist isn't CG, but are you CG? You mentioned co-washing, but I would elaborate more on your routine.

Just to add a change-up to the responses:

I detangle on average once a week. The shortest time I go between "true" detanglings, with a wide-tooth comb, is about 4 days. Finger combing does not do...

Haha, I don't think it's really biting the bullet. Most curlies here, no matter their regimen, don't use all products of all one brand.

In other words, if the conditioner works, it doesn't...

Totally with you on the more humid weather. My hair does great in the after-rain weather (though, as dusalocks mentions, the fact that I'm in California might make a difference).

Is your hair also dry?

Assuming the hair isn't irreparably damaged, try a protein treatment (will help with droopy curls) followed by an intensive deep treatment.

Do you know any of your hair...

So, half a good hair day.

I tried a new mixture today for my DT, which got cut short (but that's an entirely different story).

It was basically TNNM + EVOO + a few drops of jojoba + Honey.

I must have, however, either...

Preferably neither. When you cut your hair wet, unless you know your drying pattern really well, you risk screwing up length estimates and shaping.

When you cut it straight, a similar thing...

You probably won't know your true pattern until new hair grows in, if it's truly that damaged. Patience is required.

I have to get clump action before scrunching/plopping/drying, and I imagine that's how most do it. It's really difficult to make your hair clump nicely after it's already mostly dry.
