I got my analysis back.. now help me shop!!

YAY! Here are my results: Fine texture, normal porosity and elasticity. I have thick density but not as thick as it used to be before having kids - so maybe more like medium-thick.

I tried CG before with drug store stuff and didnt really find much that I liked. This time so far I have used and like: Texture my way Moisture shampoo, CJ Daily Fix, Elucence Moisture Balancing Conditioner,DArcy's Botanicals Pumpkin seed conditioner, Curl Keeper, and L.A.Looks Mega gel. I also tried a sample of U R Curly Loose curl enhancer

So far I haven't tried anything I dislike. My hair feels clean, and my scalp is not dry flaky and itchy anymore. I can get day 2 hair, and day 3 but I feel a little grubby by the end of the day.

What I would like is more curl definition - clumping and volume if that is possible. We've been lucky with the humidity so far this season - very wet but not hot, so I haven't had to tame much frizz.. but that is around the corner.

What should I try?
3A/2C fine, normal porosity & elasticity, medium high density

Current products:
YTCucs Color Protection Low poo
GVP Conditioning Balm
Random gels - not sure which ones I like, if any at this point!


HG Summer Routine:
poo - TMW Hydrate
RO & LI - Darcy's Pumpkin Seed
Leave in Products: CHSCK & LALMG
PT - CJ RM
DT - EVCO

Currently trying to figure out a winter routine and transition to a less harsh "poo" for summer.
I've seen your pics and it looks and sounds like you already have some products that are working for you. If you're looking for definition and volume, if you're not doing it already, the scrunch n pump application method is pure genius. Ever since I mastered it, I pretty much have good hair every day and I attribute it to this!

As far as products, I would highly suggest you try okra gel! Also, I love the combination of spiral solutions curl jelly + firm hold gel. Since you're fine haired, you might also want to pick up some conditioners/ treatment with protein. Curl junkie repair me is good, and some use it as a leave in!
2C/ Coarse/ Normal porosity/ SW Florida/ Salt & Pepper
Cleanse: CJ Daily Fix, JC Cleansing Cream, TJ Tea Tree Condish
Condish: JC Too Shea, CJ Curl Rehab (both as RO & LI)
Stylers: UFD CM, CJ PP, JC Spiralicious, Darcy's Cream Gel & Cocoa bean whip
okra gel is definitely on my to do list - I wanted to avoid home made things this time around strictly out of laziness but if its that great I'd be silly not to give it a try! I was hoping my properties would be the same as yours so I could just buy the products in your siggy.. lazy!!

I'll read up again about scrunch and pump.. I read about it quickly the other day but don't think I'm doing it right.

Lol, my hair is definitely on the fine side of normal texture. It acts more like fine hair, but the majority of it is in the normal range.
