I generally spend a lot more time on the 2s forum (I had the same 2c v 3a confusion for my first 6 months- and after that I've just found it to be a much more active forum). This was where my product choices differ the most from many wavies. Many of the wavies that I talk to are looking for ultra mega super stiff hold and lots of "grabbiness" in their products. I find that my hair does better when I use thinner and less grabby products. I do still like a good amount of hold (more hold does seem to reduce the frizz), but hold is secondary to consistency for me. My three favorite gels for this are Biotera (at Sally's), AG Curl Liquid Effects Gel, and Curly Sexy Hair Liquid Curling Gel. All have good hold to prevent my hair from turning into a frizzy poofball as it dries, but a thin enough consistency that they allow my curls to start to spring up as my hair dries (and to continue to spring up further after I SOTC).
