Cool, I am a newbie too (discovered actual curls as I'm growing out a pixie cut).
I too am using mostly Deva products - what I've heard on the board is that a lot of newbies start with Deva then move on to other products. Right now I'm thinking that since I actually have it working well with Deva why switch!
I seem to have similar hair to yours - I'm co-washing with Deva OC, then using OC as conditioner and leave-in. Spritzing 3 pumps of Set It Free on my palms and scrunching into SOAKING wet hair, then following with 1 1/2 palmfuls of Angel (also soaking wet hair) then plopping for about 10-15 mins. After air dry/diffuser I SOTC with Aveda Humectant pomade. Seems to be working great for me, and it's been raining on and off here in the upper Midwest for about a week now!
