Definitely hang around here and read up on some of the posts through the different forums. I struggled with my hair so much when it was curly that I usually just ended up straightening it daily. After being around this site for a month or so I had a great hair routine and line up of products that I use.

Its a good idea to look through the product reviews section of the site under "curl products" at the top and keep up with what people are saying about different products on this board. You'll be able to see what people with your hair type are having good luck with.
