I use bentonite clay and it makes my ringlets very coily and springy, as opposed to frizzy.  I took pics I'm trying to upload now.  If I'm sucessful, I'll edit this post later to include them. 
 
 
I got crazy with the clay, putting it all over my face!
bentonite1
bentonite2
bentonite3
bentonite4
 
The effect lasts for a few days, so I do it mainly to detoxify.  Still, I think it's worth it.

Donna where'd you purchase your clay?

I shouldn't be buying anything else, but your curls just look so cute!

but if you are talking about making your waves "pop".. Eco styler gel.
 
Eco drys my hair.  IC Fantasia works really well for me, but I have to co-wash my hair 2 to 3 times a week due to build up.

Thanks, Ladies!
 
I purchased mine from Amazon.  It's called "Aztec Secret" and it was very affordable.  1lb for under $10.  I use it twice a month and it works really well as a cleanser.  I let my hair products build up over a few days and the clay removes all the gunk and oils without making my hair feel squeaky and stripped.
 
I have 4a / 4b hair (mostly 4b) and this really gives me a lot of spring where I ordinarily wouldn't have them!

I scared the heck out of my dog too coming out the bathroom.  He took off up the hallwayLOL
 
I use henna too, but it really doesn't loosen my curl.  I suppose everyone is different, though...
