I hear you! It can really be overwhelming at first. We've all been there. This link helped me a lot when I started: Live Curly Live Free - Curly Hair Basics
and Curly Hair Tips, Styles & Products - NaturallyCurly
From there it's really trial and error. One of the mistakes I made when I first started was to try too much at once. I was using way too much of way too many products. Keep it simple and the pieces will fall into place.
