Do you shampoo? I don't know if the Aveda Be Curly has cones in it or not, if you shampoo I'd say try it.
Other things that seem to make my hair curlier is rinsing upside down and plopping. After I detangle I flip my hair over and detangle, then rinse it upside down. Then I put my products in upside down too.
Then I put my hair right into a t-shirt to plop. Those things seem to help hold the curl pattern better.
2b/3a, primarily use Jessicurl and DevaCurl products, Curls Hair Tea conditioner and various gels. I'm modified CG-ish since 5/04.
