Default I need a REALLY GOOD CG curl enhancer...

I have 3a/3b hair I would say it's medium textured with alot of hair, definately not super coarse.

Currently want my routine to be: co-wash with Suave/Vo5, curl-enhacer, L.A. Looks Sports Gel...

All that is needed in the curl enhancer.
I would prefer something no more than 15 dollars, but you know that'll probably never happen.

Soo, please tell me what kind of curl enhancers that are on the market which would work best for my type of hair -- AND that are CG.

I think Re:coil and the Curl Junkie curl creams are all curl enhancing with Re:coil probably providing the most boost. The Re:coil takes a little practice to figure out how much to use though. They are all CG.

I was thinking about buying Re:coil, but will it gradually stop working in my hair.. Like will my hair get used to it in any way?

It's possible for anything to eventually stop working for you. But I've been using re:coil for about a year now and it's still like magic for me!

Honey. I never notice curl enhancement as much as I do when I use honey. You can either mix it with your conditioner, do a honey rinse after your conditioner (a little bit of honey mixed in a big cup of water), or mix a TINY bit in with your gel. It's cheap too!

I love re:coil! Still trying to figure the amounts out. A lot on here say to use just a little emulsified in your hands first, but I think I need about a quarter sized amount.

Where do you find the Boots curl cream? And what is the difference between the pink Boots and the white Boots? Thanks!!
