first let me say I love your hair long! Do you know what your hair properties are? I think knowing that would help to figure out what's up. It sounds like it might be overconditioned if you use 3 DTs a week, or have buildup of some kind. Did you do a last sulfate wash without silicones, and not use any after? Or was it like this with your hair long even before CG? If it was it could just be weighed down; when my hair is longer I lose a lot of volume on top. I hope this helps some!
