I find that regular old chamomile tea really helps to soften my hair. I let two teabags sit in a mostly-full medium sized saucepan for ~20 minutes use it as a rinse out. You could give that a go.

I have been amazed by how many curlies I notice now that I look for them! I'm always thinking about how they do their hair.
