How can I enhance my waves (2b) while giving moisture?

My hair is dry, and my 2b curls are always brushed into 2a. I wouldn't brush them, but the girls at my school make fun if me when my hair isn't brushed thouroughly. I want to make my waves seem more like curls, and at the same time keep them healthy and moisturized. I use sulfate-free shampoo and silicone free conditioner. What can I do to enhance the curls and make my hair better in general?
Curl Pattern: 2A/B
Porosity: Low
Hair Density: Medium/High
Width: Fine
Length: Medium
I don't use silicones or sulfates! :)

    Leave-in conditioners work well for moisturizing (you can just use a little bit of your rinse out conditioner). Hard hold gels also work for enhancing waves.

    And girls can be so mean sometimes. :disgust:

    You could use a curl enhancer, but leave-in and gel will be your friends! You could also diffuse so your hair dries faster.
