Just a little addendum to my post above (since a whole day has passed)...

My curls today have been big and bounteous and very soft-looking (it does not look "producty" in the least, but like my hair just naturally does this). Not especially shiny, but my hair only looks shiny with a TON of oil and such in it, and frankly I'd rather it look soft! Amazingly my hair has NOT developed more frizz as the day's gone by, which is highly unusual for me.

I'm only at the beginning of my CG journey, and ideally I would like to further minimize frizz and perhaps coax out a bit of natural, non-"producty"-looking shine, but I'm happy with where my hair is now =)
