How to get defined curls on short 3c hair without crunchiness

Hello all!

After almost 6 years after my initial big chop, I decided to take the plunge again and cut all my hair off. But now I've realized that I've forgotten how to deal with short hair. I need a curl creme/styler that I can use every other day without excess buildup and that defines my hair but is still soft to the touch. Gel type products dry me out and super oily products make my hair too soft and frizzy. Frizzy didn't bother me as much when my hair was long because you could still see the curls, but with short hair, the frizziness eclipses my curls. Help please!!! Oh and reasonably priced products are what I'm looking for unless there's a $25 8 oz. product that is literally to die for. Thanks!

    Have you tired the tightly curly method?

    It's conditioner only styling, but it's still supposed to set your curls. My hair loved that so much when I first big chopped (going to revisit it soon).
