I'm coming to the end of my non-CG lifestyle (in fact, today is it--woo hoo!) so I'm pretty excited about it. I actually use Curl Amplifier now as well, and I know what you mean about the weigh-down factor.

As far as getting really nice, clumpy curls goes, I've found that using flax seed gelee and then putting two small pumps of the CA in my hair makes for softer, fuller curls. I started using a sulfate shampoo recently, though, and I feel that has been contributing to a greater frizz factor than usual. So I'm hoping that going CG will give me the pretty clumps I so pine for.
Fine, porous 3a with some 3b...
