Thank you for the suggestions, tips, and warnings. I spent quite a bit of time looking at products last night and was surprised how readily available a lot of it is. I'm excited and hopeful.
I was also pleasantly surprised when taking pictures of my hair last night that the underside of my hair still had its curl! I did the CG method today, and tried the plopping. My hair is holding more curl than it has for a few months, so very promising. It does have the halo of frizz to it, so I'm assuming you are all very right in that my hair needs more moisture.
I'm very excited to have found this forum. Thank you all for your help. I will hopefully have happy curls in the next month or so.
