Default Tighten up the curls?

So I'm a 2-ish wavy who's been CG (no poo and no 'cones) for...awhile. Anywho, I can get some corkscrews in the very front, but mostly my hair is just wavy/poofy. I'm really looking to tighten my curls and maybe get some product suggestions. Thanks!

Look for things that say curl enhancers. Re:coil is a popular one but it can be hard to use every time you style because it has epsom salt which can dry some people out. Curl creams are another good option

when i want a head of ringlets, i use L'oreal's Pumping Curls. Its rarely at the local drug store, but it is on line, amazon, walgreens, etc. I co-wash and then spray the heck our of my crown, front and back. I do run a comb )big fat one) through my hair one time to ensure its distribution. Then air dry and finger shake. Major curls for me...i'm a 3a/b, bsl when curly, and i some very light layers for volume at my crown. Works for me. Its inexpensive, but is a bit crunchy but curly!

Co-Wash: Cure Care
Conditioner: EVOO hot oil from the kitchen

Stylers: CG Mousse of some sort, usually HE or Clairol 3-in-1 if I can find it!

Then Diffuse until about 75% dry, then air dry the rest of the way**
