Products I use for 2A wavy hair

I've hesitated to recommend anything, because I know all too well that what works for one person, may not work for another. But I've had continued success with these products for over a year, so here goes.
Shampoo - Aveda be curly and Bumble & Bumble Color Minded Sulfate Free. I use a dime size amount of both together.
Conditioner - ISO Bouncy Conditioner, hands down the BEST I've ever used. Doesn't weigh my hair down and gives great definition.

My hair dries quickly, so I refresh it before styling with Bumble & Bumble Prep spray or Fioravanti No rinse detangling spray.

Styling products - Fekkai Luscious Curls Wave Activating Spray. I have to use gel. Mousse is too heavy and creams weigh it down. My 'go to' gels are L'Oreal Everystyle curldefining Gel mixed with Fekkai Extra Control Styling Gel for added hold.

Hope this helps at least one 2A out there.

    Is the wave activating spray similar to beach/salt sprays? I've been looking for a curl enhancing spray but all of the beach type sprays I've tried are super drying.
    2A/B. Mix of fine, medium, and coarse (mostly medium). Dense. Mix of normal and high porosity.
    Dry climate.

    You might want to try the renpure wind & water spray in an orange bottle. It has coconut oil and other moisturizing ingredients to help prevent too much drying, and it also has a little hold. I'm pretty sure its CG and it never caused me any problems :thumbright:
