Curl Definition/Enhancement - What it means to you?

There seems to be varying definitions of curl defining/enhancing products. For example: My hair is thin, fine, 4a. The curls are very tight, coily, about the size of a pen spring. When I look for a curl defining/enhancing product, I desire a product that will
loosen/elongate the curl
create shine
reduce frizz
clump strands of hair together
soften hair
I am able to acheive this using the Kinky-Curly Knot Today & Curling Custard. Are there other products that help you acheive my definition of curl definition?

What does curl definition/enhancement mean to you? What is your hair type?
thin, fine, 4a
Well I'm 3a'ish. That definition definitely is different from my definition of curl enhancement. My definition of curl enhancement is really simple: It's any product that makes my curls go boing. Now if only I could find such a product..

A curl enhancer is basically something that makes your hair curlier.

Definition is the separation of one curl from the next. When your curls aren't very defined they kind of blend into one another.

Yeah, a product that will give me tight and bouncy ringlets, more like 3b curls. Or at least 3a curls that shrink up much more. Not that I wouldn't mind curls tighter than 3b curls I just know there's no way that would happen.
I see what the OP meant though. Curl enhancement basically just means what look you think enhances your curls the most. For looser curlies or wavies that generally probably means tighter curls. For really tight curls it probably means trying to elongate the curl. Although, I have to admit I've always thought of curl enhancement as making curls tighter.

In that case... I use products that:

Give me tighter curls
Help cut down on frizz
Give volume at the root

My hair is of medium thickness and density, and I'm a 3a/b. I like to use Re:coil, BRHG and Curl Keeper.

I'm 3b/3c. Curl enhancement to me means curlier hair, more volume. Clumping gives me less curl and volume. I don't think frizz has much to do with my definition, except that the less frizz I have, the less curl and volume I have. For less frizz, my hair has to clump more, and again, I don't necessarily like clumping.
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!

To me, as a 3a, curl enhancement means my hair is curlier. Jessicurl products are what I use for this. Thinfine, if you have tiny tight curls already, you probably don't need curl enhancement.
