Product Rec's for 3A - Medium Texture

Just curious to see what everyone is using that has the same properties as me:
Medium Texture, Normal Porosity, Normal Elasticity.

I am currently using Deva OneC, BRHG, Re:Coil .. Seems like everyday I try something different. I do have to say though I love what Deva has done to my hair, so soft and incredible shine

What is everyone else using to give great definition, clumps?
Thanks so much!!!
I didn't have much success with Deva, myself. But, I'm fine/low/low. Not the same properties that you are. My best bet is anything CJ. Curl Junkie products work better for me than any other product line. Personally, I'm never really on a hunt for clumps. They happen anyway. As long as I don't mess around too much with my hair as it's drying, I get them just fine. Even though my hair is dense, if it clumps too much, it looks like I have less hair -and I don't like that.

My hair properties are similar although I list myself as fine, it's really both fine in some sections and medium in others. You can see all of my products in my signature. Like racerwife, I don't try to get extra clumps because they do make it look like I have less hair, but I don't mind the ones I get. I do find that some products like the aveda light elements defining whip does add extra definition with thicker curls- in essence clumps but because it contains marshmellow root it also adds volume, light hold and texture which I like. I just use a dab of it on wet hair. I also really like aveda's be curly style prep for a little more curl boost, light hold, softness and some definition. Their be curly curl enhancer gave me too much definition for my taste- but that's because I don't like perfectly defined see through looking curls on me (looks great on other curlies though).

Where do you buy the Aveda products? Salon?
I buy my aveda products at local aveda salons (search online to find them) or online at aveda.com. Online has great free shipping orders sometimes with samples and they accept all returns for full refund (minus your return shipping). Many aveda salons offer samples and most give full refunds if you aren't happy with the product. I was looking at target's website yesterday and noticed they had some aveda items, too, so maybe target stores are selling them now, too?

I'm a 2c/3a.
I tried Davine's and they didn't do much at all. I've found sulfate and paraben free are best. Silicone and alcohol free are also ideal (but it's hard to find products free from all 4!). My current products seem to work well for my hair.

My current routine is:
Sleep on a silk pillow
Deva Poo and Deva One Conditioner (every 2-3 days)
Scrunch wet hair with a t-shirt, right after shower, from ends to tips
Dry wet hair with a t-shirt
After I take the t-shirt off of my hair, I put my head forward and spay Deva Set it Free Moisture Lock all over my hair and continue to scrunch. I got this advice from a salon worker when I bought these products.
After I'm done spraying Set it Free, I put B'Leave-In Conditioner all over my head. I scrunch some more
Once my new Fuzzy Duck Anti-Frizz gel comes, I will be using that after the B'Leave-In.
