i only comb my hair when it is beginning washed or cowashed: in the shower wet with lots of conditioner. that equals every 3 days for me.

i would only suggest using shampoo once a week max. i use it every 9 days aka my 3rd cowash

products are relative to the head but fantasia ic olive gel is amazing. also find a creamy leave-in conditioner

I only wash my hair once a week and co-wash twice a week. And I only use my fingers. I use 3 products regularly :Eulencense Moisture Balancing Conditioner as my co-wash and leave-in, eulescense moisture benefits shampoo and Fantasia IC gel with aloe vera and jojoba oil added. Sometimes I use Curls whipped cream to brush my hair back.

Only comb or brush it when it's wet. That's the number one rule.

How much should I wash my hair a week with shampoo?
I shampoo my hair once every one or two weeks. Depending on the buildup

and what is a good styling product/s for 3c type hair?
It depends. What might be someone's trash can be someone's treasure.

A co-wash is basically washing your hair with conditioner instead of shampoo.

I only comb my hair when its wet (after a cowash, or if I re-wet it)

I co-wash every other day, and I shampoo once a month.

Styling products vary from person to person. I am in love with Kinky Curly Curling Custard (I have to order it online) and Long Aid Activator Gel for Extra Dry Hair (you can get it at walgreens).
