Welcome to the wavy boards Clickchick. There is lots of great info here. Odds are your husband is just not going to get it.
Start with cheap products until you get a handle on what ingredients your hair likes. If you want to try more expensive ones, Kathymack sells samples. Check the fotki in her signature.
Good luck with your newly discovered wavy hair.
