Default 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!

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!

Thanks, where can you buy that brand? Does Target or walmart sell it?

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.

It's an online brand. You can buy through her etsy page or website.

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.
