Default What does my hair like/dislike? (Product recommendations)

I've been CG for about 6 months, but I'm still unsure about ingredient-specific details about my hair.

It is 2c and 3a. It is fine, and I had a lot of breakage when I used to damage it with heat and chemicals. Now that its healthier, I'm pretty sure it has normal porosity.

I know that it is protein-loving (loves henna and coconut oil). It always reacts well to Ion Effective Care. The Ion Reconstructor makes it a little frizzy sometimes.
It also loves GVP CB.

LA Looks Styling Gel makes my hair look greasy and weighed down. Herbal Essences Totally Twisted works really well, but I get product buildup from that. I have been using Deva AnGel, but it is a really light gel and I get some frizz with it.

It likes KCKT, but if I put too much, it gets greasy. I've tried Curl Keeper recently but I'm still trying to figure out how my hair is reacting to that.

Any product recommendations? Or specifics on what my hair likes or doesn't like? I've been thinking about trying KCCC? Would that work well with my hair?
