Curly Kinks Coil Jam is a great product in my hair and I'm also loving Shea Moisture Curling Souffle. They are both jelly-type products but that is what works to give me definition without a hard cast over my hair. A leave-in is a must for me though or they tend to stay a bit tacky all day. I'll use my leave-in on wet hair, apply the jelly, plop for 5-15 minutes, diffuse upside down to about 80% then flip right-side-up to adjust my part and apply a light-hold gel (I use CJ CIAB). That helps to keep the frizz under control and it's light enough that I don't have to scrunch. But I agree, it is something you'll have to experiment with to see what works for your hair. Even after figuring out what my hair likes it took time to determine which combos give me the look I want.
