I don't think mine are actually product related. I think my best curl enhancers are plopping and diffusing.

If I had to pick a product, I'd say FOTE on damp Day 2+ hair.

Ditto on the FOTE on damp day 2 hair.

and Jessicurl RR and CCSS are my 'go to' products for when I need reliable good hair. Unfortunately, I can't use them every day, the mag sulf causes frizz issues if i do. But they're great for dates or job interviews :P

Not a styler but I'm getting the best curls using Flower Moon Soap's Dairy Whip as a shampoo. Love it!

I get the best curl enhancement with AG re:coil but I can't use it all the time because it dries my hair out.

So far my best curls have come from KCCC + HE SMU and diffuser drying (scrunching or pixie curl).

Aloe vera gel. I revisited it today, and I have great clumping, and minimal frizz. I have HE SMU gel scrunched in over the top of it.

One that never lets me down is shea moisture. I use it as a leave in and it gives me clumps and good curl formation.

KBB Hair nectar gives me great all over ringlets.
Also any conditioner with glycerin in it but I have to be careful cause it can also leave me with a bit of surface frizz.

Another vote for Re:Coil, and CC. More the RC, but I do use them mixed together and get good results.
I also use a Del2C inspired leave in rinse--
VO5 Vanilla Mint
Honey
Glycerin
Aloe Vera
Giovanni Leave In
Makes for a pretty good wavey day.
