It's not necessarily so much about what products but how you apply them.
I have a lot of thick, kinky hair. The circumference of my hair in a ponytail is about 4.5 inches! In order to get the most even distribution of product, I scrunch it into soaking wet hair immediately after my shower.
Others like to rake in products, but my waves are too weak for that. Plus, it breaks up my clumps.
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
