The best way to select ingredients/products is by hair properties. Here's a link to help you with yours

My hair is fine/low porosity. Prefers the more natural products without the chemicals, especially polyquats. I find that protein really helps when the dewpoints get higher. Most of the year, I do one PT a week and use a lot of products with protein. In the summer, I usually do 2 PTs a week. I also use minute amounts of really rich products (my low porosity hair doesn't care for straight oil/butter) to "seal" my hair--and top with a jelly product.
