It can be really hard to figure out what your hair likes and what it doesn't. The best advice I can given is keep an eye on ingredients and when you change something in your hair regimen only change one thing at a time.
CurlyFireHorse
Hair: 2a or 3a (not sure), very porous and fine as frog hair
Day 1: Cowash and condition with AO GPB, ACV Rinse,
Co-Kra gel (this stuff is fantastic)

Day 2: KCKT, KCCC, plop, KCCC, plop again, air dry
Day 3: Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Coil Jam
Day 4: IAGirl's PT, KBB DT, FSG

Co-Kra gel is my own concoction of okra boiled in coconut milk. It is a cross between FSG and KCCC and leaves my hair very soft and shiny

The easiest way to find what products to use is to find the type of hair you have coarse, fine, etc and your porosity and the dew point of your area. Look it up theres tons of information here. Then use suggested products for your hair needs. Lol
