I'm a 2c/3a, a bit heat damaged and i want to care for my hair so the curls start to form into little ringlets, i LOVE that look. But i dont know how? Gel and mousse make my hair stringy and doesnt enhance the curl, so far i use leave-ins but do you guys have any other suggestions?

Also i was considering heat-free rollers, tight ones, do they work?

Heres a pic of my curls now, weird pose but it shows how my hair usually looks
