Hair properties are really more important in choosing ingredients/products than curl type. Here's a link to help you find yours Live Curly Live Free - Curly Hair Basics
Once you determine your hair properties, look for other folks with hair like yours and see what they use (in signatures.) It's the best place to start.
Because you have cherub curls, you want to use minute amounts of whatever products you use--so you don't weigh them down.
I did shampoo/conditioner every day up until about five years ago. I "weaned" myself to every three days--although I wet and diffused every day. I never used styling products until starting to lurk on nc.com. Now, I wet, use a rinse out and style every day. Cleanse when necessary, which is dependent on the season (every 3/4 days in summer, every 7-10 in winter, and something in between the rest of the year.)
I started as a winter wavy/summer 3a. Since I learned how to take care of my curls here, my hair looks like my signature picture every day.
