Curl cream or cream styler with high shine?

I usually use Aveda Be Curly plus some gel (Phomollient, Confixtor, MGA gel) but it does tend to dull the shine of my hair some.

I am looking for another curl cream or an similar cream style product for my waves and new short hair that would give more shine.

ps I did not like AG Re:Coil- I dont do well with mag. sulfate.

Using FIA: 2b/2a mix with a few ringlets in the canopy, straighter in the under layer by my neck. Thin in density, fine strands. Normal porosity. Hennaed.

Go To's: Aveda, Lush
I always found the Phomolient made my hair shiny. Everything from Spiral Solutions makes my hair shiny. I also can't use Re:coil.

CJCIAB makes me shiny.
Sort of CG sometimes, but not really
2B, medium? normal porosity and elasticity?

Cleansers -
Suave Clarifying, Philosophy Happy Birthday Beautiful

Stylers - BRHG, re:coil, Ion Hairspray

I am thinking the CJ stuff might work with the shorter hair, I'll have to try it again.

The SS CEJ did not work for me, but it has salt which I am guessing is the issue for me.

I've been using AG: Recoil a lot, but my hair does look dull. I'd love to find a product that gives more shine. I'm going to try KCCC again. My problem with it when I have used it in the past is that it seems to take forever to dry.

What about a shine pomade?

I'm going to try CJ CIAB. I so wish I could just find a consistent HG!
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
Recoil always made my hair look dull. I would suggest CIAB or spiral solutions FHG.
Mod CG since 8/2010
2cFii (fia), normal/normal, protein junkie. Itchy and allergic wavy!
