Wondering what products work for you?

Hi guys!

I was just curious as to what other wavies generally use on their hair.

My hair journey has been... interesting overall, haha. I have used countless products and think I have found the ONE routine.

Recently, I have been using the Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Shampoo and conditioner, then a dollop of Kinky Curly Knot Today as a leave in/detangler (if you don't use this, try it! Makes a huge difference in my hair), then I spray a tiny bit of sea spray (right now, Not Your Mother's but I am not picky) on my hair to help it dry faster and also encourage wave without super heavy curly defining products (which generally have the opposite effect for me... stretches it out or makes it crunchy). Then, when it's 50% dry, I take two pumps of the new Ogx (formerly Organix) Kukui Oil Curl Cream, one pump for each side of my hair, and scrunch it into my waves. Then- voila! My ideal hair! I have used so many products and this is what works for me! You can look at my prof pic to see its lovely effects

So- what do you guys love to use? Or is there something still missing from your routine? I am so curious!

(also idk how to edit the thing below this saying what I used to use... do you guys know how? I forgot)
Wavy 2b baby-fine hair, low density, porosity ??
Low Poo: Lush Karma Komba(HG), KC Come Clean
Rinse out: KCKT or Lush Veganese
Stylers: Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, NYM Beach Babe Spray, KCSS
Mousse is a must for me!!! I'm not overly picky on the brand....I've used and liked Herbal Essence Twisted Up, Suave Captivating Curls, Pantene Pro-V No Crunch Curls Whipped Mousse, etc. I've also discovered the awesomeness of aloe vera gel in place of regular gel. To revive day(s)-old waves, I love Suave Waterless Foam Shampoo.
2a, fine-med. text, normal porosity (I think)

[FONT=Going back and forth between Herbal Essence Don't Fade On Me shampoo and condish and L'oreal Sulfate Free shampoo

Stylers-
- Not Your Mother's Curl Cream, La Bella Sports Gel, Aussie Sprunch Spray

I love using gel! But I'd actually be interested in trying a cream styler or a mousse. Anyone know of any CG friendly ones? I do adore my gels, but it'll be good to experiment with other stuff out there!

BotticelliBrit, you probably won't be able to find the cream brulee but the styling milkshake may work from their website. I think the cream brulee might be closest to the souffle in their professional line.

I'm coming to love the mix of Sweet Curls FSG and AG Mousse gel. It's becoming a gold standard for me.

Condish: JC Too Shea, CJ Curl Rehab (both as RO & LI)

I am loving AG Beach bomb. I can use that by itself and my hair looks great.
