After a few months of trying out various routines, I have found what is working the best.
1. Wash daily with NoPoo. I have tried multiple conditioners, cheap, expensive, Jessicurl, Devacurl, Suave, Ellucence, and not one of them works as a CoWash for me.
2. Honey Rinse as described on the Jessicurl site.
3. EMB conditioner. Aloeba
works okay, but not quite as well.
4. Combine Giovanni Leave in with Re:Coil
and scrunch, NOT rake.
7. Air dry or bowl diffuse. It's all lovin'.
One day a week I will wash with HCC and use Aloeba
as the conditioner instead just to give myself that feeling of lather. Once a month -- the day I color -- I am using Ellucence Clarifying Shampoo.
Second dair hair requires me to get my hair almost as wet as I would washing it; so it's a big fat why bother unless I'm putting it up. I'd rather just wash it again and get the full benefit if I'm going to have 90% of the hassle.
Tried LLL Coco Light, and it made my hair stringy. Tried Aloeba
as a leave in, and it did too.
Hope this helps some wavy/curly out there!
