Default Seeking maximum curl enhancement!! Recommendations?

Hello all,
What's the gel/styling product that you have obtained the maximum curl enhancement from? I am currently using Rockin' Ringlets, and I do like it, but, of course, am always seeking MORE curl!! My hair is 2c, sometimes with a bit of 3A.

Probably Herbal Essences Humidity Defying Gel, but I don't use it very often because of the protein.

I use LA Looks Curl Look gel and blow dry with a diffuser. It gives me amazing curls.

Biosilk Rock Hard Gel, AG re:coil and boots(pink stuff) are all enhancing to me. Maybe POTAR gel(it seems to define curls well, but I'm not sure if it's curl enhancing)?

I second the Herbal Essences. Nothing else I've tried has made my hair as curly as this stuff. I find that if I switch it up with another gel, my hair isn't negatively affected by the proteins.

Thanks for the suggestions guys! I feel a product shopping spree coming on...
With the gels such as the Biosilk and Herbal Esscences one, do you find they enhance curl on their own, or do you use them in combination with another enhancer such as RR?

I don't usually combine products unless it's the Aussie Combo (Dual Personality Gel + Water and Tizz No Frizz). I like to keep it simple. In fact, I rarely use gel at all. I mostly use cream stylers.

I can use Herbal Essences alone for great curl enhancement.

Abba Botz made my hair very curly. Aussie Foam+Leave In gave me wave to the root, although I wouldn't say it made my curl wavelength any shorter. Things that enhance my curl tend to also make it stringy; things that make my hair clumpy tend to make the curls more wavy. Go figure.
