Your hair properties are more important than type. http://livecurlylivefree.com/curly%20hair%20basics.htm

Once you know these you can look or someone with similar properties and what they use with success and start there. You will have some trial and error still. Method also will affect curl formation and that also is mostly trial and error.
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
