Default Natural curl enhancers?

I know epsom salt is a natural curl enhancer, but what are some others? I'm looking to add curl enhancers to my FSG but don't know what else I can use.

I tried searching both on Google and here at Naturallycurly, but wasn't able to find what I was looking for.

Thanks in advance!

some curlies add honey or agave nectar to their FSG.

Thanks! I do use both of them for hold, but nothing works better to enhance the curl/waves in my hair than epsom salt. It gives me a little frizz, though, so I'd like to cut down a little on the amount I use without losing the effect. I added some aloe this time, which I think helped, but if I add too much it will weigh down my fine hair. I want to stick with FSG because my hair has never been healthier. It's ruined me for store-bought gels.

I haven't tried it yet but you could add some seamollient to your FSG. Here's a couple of threads but there are more if you do a search.

Flax seed gel and seamollient

*GoW Majik Lockes and Seamollient*

Hope this helps and good luck!

I'm not sure, but I heard that lemon helps some, though I guess it would be a bit drying.

Btw, lemon can lighten hair. Just a heads up.
