Have you check out this thread: TON of useful information for newbies? If not, start there for routine advice. This is also a good thread: Start Here

Both of those threads have info on the CG method, which is *the* method around here.
I am a modified CG because I still feel the need to low-poo now and then. My signature has most of the products I use, all can be found at Walgreens, Target and Sally's Beauty Supply. The products not in my signature, that I have used before with luck, are: Gariner Pure Clean Conditioner, Herbal Essence Totally Twisted Styling Gel, and Herbal Essence Set Me Up Max Hold Gel

Good luck on your journey to beautiful curls! I wish I had started when I was 16
