Can I Get Ringlets?

I want my hair to have more ringlets rather than wavy stringlets! There are some parts near my face that form almost perfect loos ringlets. How do i get them on the rest of my head? Maybe by putting in my mousse (my hair can't stand gel no matter how I use it) on very wet hair? My hair is a 2C-3A curl pattern, medium to coarse width, shoulder length, and medium porosity.
Type: 2C-3A
Porosity: Low
Width: Medium
Length: Shoulders
Density: Medium

Co-wash: Suave Naturals
Rinse-out: HEHH, Tresemme Naturals
Gels: LA Looks Polish Perfect, HESMU
Mousse: HESMU, HETMS, Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam

I think folks might be able to help you more if you show a picture of your ringlets, stringlets and the length thereof for each, and how you style. And are the ones around your face shorter? Length can affect how much it curls up.

When I want more clumpy ringlets, I use the SuperSoaker method. When I want more volume, I break apart the clumps, shake the hair, blow it more vigorously, then shake again. Different look. I don't always want the bigger clumps or ringlets. Sometimes I want a mass of gypsyish, air-ified curls (hair looks longer that way, too).

But, rather than mouse, something that enhances curls. I find I get more ringlets when: 1. I am in good protein-balance state and 2. when I style hair VERY wet, supersoak and 3. When I scrunch a lot when adding products (such as flaxseed gel or Re:coil or leave-in). So, in brief: Very wet styling/supersoaking, good protein state, curl enhancer, scrunching.

I agree with mircurls.

My hair gets curlier and has more spring in it when i lean more toward protein products. My hair is mostly coarse so im more of a moisture holic lol....but when my curls are too S shaped i start using lite protein products.
