I have the same properties (fine/normal/normal). I still like strong hold gels, but I found that thinner gels seem to weigh down my hair much less (thick clumpy gels will pull my hair more towards waves, while a more liquid gel will give me more curls). I also focus on using lots of protein- I've actually tried to overdose on protein and it didn't work.

A few hours post sotc its really obvious. Maybe trying a different gel will change this? Or do you think it is what it is?

I also have low density but i don't think this has anything to do with maintaining curl.

I don't mind my waves i just wish they looked nice. They tend to look stringy and a bit frizzy. Also they stick out. I can't get a soft wave look.
