Hi there! I have very soft 3A hair andI have to wash them everyday or they lose the texture totally.
I only use mousse and I see that Im losing the volume on the roots and the curls dont last more then a day. Every morning I have to wash them or I look like I never combed them in my life.
You do know that consistently washing isn't good for your curls right? What you need is a curl & style milk or cream. The benefit of them is moisture and enhancing your natural curls. Shea Moisture carries one that would work extremely well with your hair texture. http://www.sheamoisture.com/SheaMoisture-Coconut-Hibiscus-Curl-Style-Milk-_p_747.html
Are you pineappleing your hair at night? You should be able to get more days out of your wash than that. You could try a spray bottle with half conditioner/half water to refresh the 2nd day or even try diluting a styling product that's light like Curl Keeper or Curl Junkie Curls in a Bottle. Even completely wetting your hair without shampooing it would be less harsh and would reactivate your mousse. Or try a light rinse with a conditioner only like V05 (called co-washing) and then re-style. Although, I'd hate to go through the hassle of re-doing it entirely everyday especially if you are using heat from a diffuser.
