Planning to start cg method..need advice!

Ok, so I have established my hair is a mix curl pattern (predominately 2 a/b, with quite a few corkscrew curls underneath), I have high porosity, and coarse medium-thick hair.

So now I am looking for advice on the best cg friendly, shampoos, conditioners, and styling products to use on mostly wavy hair. I am currently debating between the shea moisture brand and kinky curly brand. Would these be good for wavy hair? r would I be just asking for flat weighed down hair? I have used the organix brand and don't care for it.
Any help would be appreciated!
Mostly 2B with 2C elements and quite a few random 3A corkscrews in my underneath layer. Re-tested my hair porosity and it is now low. I have fairly dense, medium thick hair.

Use: Shea Moisture Raw shampoo and conditioner, co-wash w/ suave naturals coconut, aussie ausome volume mousse and Herbal essence totally twisted gel.
I've just invested in 2 darceys botanicals conditioners which I am in love with, the rinse out pumpkin seed conditioner which is thick and moisturising enough without weighing it down and the vanilla delight leave in which smells lush and is equally amazing!

Shea Moisture: People seem to like the shampoos but the leave-ins and stylers can be quite heavy for some people. I have very thick, medium textured kinky hair that did not like the Smoothie at all. Others love the Smoothie and the Milk can be popular.

Kinky Curly: Many people hate the Shampoo (Come Clean) but love the leave-in (Knot Today). The popular KCCC (Curling Custard) is a love or hate product. It takes awhile to get the hang of it in terms of how much to use. I prefer to use this in the warmer months.

If you have a Sally's I'd get the GVP conditioning balm. It's like the expensive Biolage brand but for way cheaper.

Other products to consider:
Conditioner: Tresemme Naturals, Yes to Cucumbers/Carrots
Gel: Herbal Essences Totally Twisted/Set Me Up, Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee, Ecostyler Krystal, Aussie Instant Freeze

oh wanted to add, you don't have to stick to one product line. I think very few people do this! I mix and match myself.
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

rinse out: CJ Beauticurls, CJ A&OO, CJ Smoothing

jellies/creams: Mop C, KCCC, SCE FSG
gels: CJ CQ, BRHG

MY CG stack! Heres what I decided to go with for the CG method, I hope these products work out.
Thanks for all ya'lls advice. I did take it all into consideration, along with my own research. It was much appreciated.

Let me know what you think of the shae moisture shampoo. A cheap and decent conditioner is the suave natural coconut conditioner. I support fine easy to tangle hair and it works well for me if I'm not sulfate shampooing.
