Default Looking for curl shrinkage

Is there a product or way other than a perm to make my curls shrink up some more? I am forever wanting the tight coily curls and I have them down on my neck but I am just a picky person when it comes to my hair. I was hoping for maybe a product because I really don't want to perm if I don't absolutely have to do it. I know curling irons would do it but that would destroy the natural curl if I did it constantly.
So any help would be lovely if there is a way to do it. Thanks gals! Love yall.

Products with magnesium sulfate will enhance and shrink curls, nothing like a perm though. The ones that work for me AG recoil, Jessicurls rockin ringlets and UR Curly curl enhancer

Hydrolyed protein and magnesium sulphate. Also diffusing them clipping to support the curl as it finishes drying, leaving it as long as possible to 'scrunch out the crunch', way after you think it's bone dry.

I will make sure to check for products with those ingredients. i was thinking about clipping them up while they dry but i am not sure how to clip the back real good. Would I spin the hair around like a bun or just wad it up there? I will check youtube for a video if there is one out there. THanks so much!!!

I love those tight coily spirals too!! Sometimes I will take a damp clump and wind it around my finger and clip it with a metal clip until dry. I would never do this all over my head. Just a few strategic ones if they aren't curling quite right. Hope it helps
