Why is it so flat and frizzy?

My hair is a mix of 2b,2c, and 3a. When I wash my hair and it dries, it always looks pretty and frizz free but when I get outside it's a different story! My hair loses definition and gets frizzy, I also have a problem with having no volume so I need help on how to get nice hair throughout the day and how to get more volume in my hair. Currently I am using Shea Moistures coconut and hibiscus shampoo, Cantu conditioner, and Kinky Curly's Custard with a bit of coconut oil and Novex leave in.

Hi Jcoleismine14, Sounds like you're using waaay too much product, and heavy products too! All of this stuff: "Cantu conditioner, and Kinky Curly's Custard with a bit of coconut oil and Novex leave in" is really heavy and shouldn't be used on wavy hair. If you just bought this and don't want to completely waste it, just cut down the amount you're using in half, or mix it with lighter products. You can mix the Kinky Curly Custard with a curl cream for more hold. I like the Briogeo Leave In + Cream because it cuts down the amount of product I use since it's a 2-in-1, and it's super lightweight for wavy hair. You could try mixing that with the custard (just a little bit) for more hold. I would cut out the coconut oil completely, as that's no doubt the reason for your flat hair. Coconut oil should be used sparingly on wavy hair as a hot oil treatment, if anything. Hopefully after you cut down the amount of products you're using, your hair won't be as flat.
