Try aloe Vera gel like the ones (for drinking) sold at Whole foods. I have 4a hair which is probably more dry than hour hair but 3 tbsp avg combined with 1 tbsp jojoba oil enhances my curls and five me a very soft hold. I have midneck length hair (if stretched) so you may have to adjust amounts based on your hair length. For you I would probably try a ratio of 3 tbsp avg with 1 tsp (not 1 tbsp) oil, assuming 1 tbsp oil may be too much for your type of hair. It is basically a trial and error game.
