i need help with my curls looking pulled/stretched...

I have 2c curls, the majority of my curls are 2c, i am noticing that my curls are starting to look stretched/pulled.  How do i get them back to being full?  i wash with shampoo once a week, from the shea moisture line, and cowash about 1-2 times a week.  I use as i am leave in conditioner, some times curl keeper, and either aussie instant freeze gel or she moisture souffle(sp).  i do plop for 30 min or so when i have time or air dry.   any suggestions are welcomed!

Hi, I'm still pretty new to this myself so I'm just guessing: you might be experimenting buildup. I have fine 2b/c curls myself and I noticed that using shea moisture or other heavy products on my hair needs to be combined with a lot of scrunching and diffusing otherwise my curls look too stretched. I don't know your hair properties but using so many moisturizing product on fine 2cish hair result in loss of curls definition. I don't know if it helps...
