My hair became curlier when I quit sulphate surfactants and silicones, recently accidentally used a silicone again and got stringy lank hair. DIY deep treatments with coconut oil and sugar syrup (many use honey) make my hair curl up tighter.

Not all the products mentioned here are expensive: Suave is cheap AFAIK. Plenty of people here do Curly Girl on a drugstore budget.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG. Past bra strap length heading for waist.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen
Treatments: Komaza Care Matani, coconut/ sweet almond/ fractionated coconut oils, Hairveda Sitrinillah
Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive
Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Au Naturale styling gelee
Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
