Usually, after I apply product to my hair I finger set my curls. I like to emphasize my spirals because they are so gorgeous with just a little boost. I pick out natural clumps and spiral/twirl them around my index finger. I do this all over, spray with gel to set, do not touch until dry, and there we go!
A curl enhancer, like re:coil may help.
3B with some 3a. Fell off but am now back on the CG bandwagon and looking for my HG products.
I find that gels with aloe really encourage the curls in my hair!
I'm a 3b, with 3c underneath.

Used to be CG, now I'm not. Using Suave Aloe & Waterlily shampoo & condish, JoiWhip, BRHG, Suave Aloe gel, Aussie Tizz No Frizz, and anything else that looks good!

does diffusing or air drying make a difference? does one make your hair curlier than the other?

there's also scrunching
3b-3c CG
Conditioners or styling products with glycerin seem to give me tighter, springier curls.
Also White Rain coconut conditioner seems to tighten my curls. Not sure if it's the coconut.
3b/c fine, thick, porous, protein sensitive
Modified CG, CJ Rehab, JCWDT, KCKT, VO5 Chamomile Tea Therapy, CJDF, HEBE Gel/Mousse, Bioinfusion Rosemary Mint shampoo, occasional protein

Experimenting with BRHG

3A!
