You may have the greasy look for a bit while your scalp adjusts to the sulfate free shampoo. It's smart to put your hair halfway up though to help hide it!
You could probably deep condition 1-2x/wk since your hair looks a bit dry. Back off it starts to feel mushy and won't hold curl. Have you thought about using a more moisturizing conditioner? Lots of ladies use the GVP conditioning balm (Sally's version of biolage) as their regular rinse out.
Gels: Most gels aren't curl enhancing. Aussie Instant Freeze, Ecostyler Krystal (can make hair feel dry w/ the glycerin though), Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee (more expensive, use a small amount!).
