2a in need of product advice

Hi, I am new to the forum and was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction. I am a 2a I have fine wavy hair that is shoulder length and I love to scrunch it and make it curly/more wavy any products you have found to be great for that? Shampoo, treatments, styling products, ect.?
Yay! Somebody like me!

For me, I've found going just about entirely shampoo-free has helped enormously - that alone really enhanced the wave in my hair. I do occasionally still use a sulfate-free shampoo on my hair , but that only amounts to about once a month - usually if I've gotten really dirty or used products that I don't normally use because of a fancy event or somesuch.

I usually use the same condish for CO washing and conditioning - Down Under Naturals. Its great, cause it's not too heavy, it's CG friendly, and its cheap. For a DT I'll either mix that with a bit of olive oil and leave it on, or use Aussie 3 Minute Miracle.

My stylers tend to change around alot, but with the weather cooling off, I've been using DevaCurl Angell mixed with a touch of HE Set Me Up, layered over a bit of AG Re:coil. the Re:coil is a curl enhancer, and I find it's great especially for underneath, where the waves tend to get weighed down. Plus, plopping tends to help me to prevent flat top and boosts volume a bit too.

Feel free to ask for a bit of clarification if you're confused about any of what I've suggested - I know I threw an awful lot at you all at once.

Thanks for the reply but I do need some clarification. You dont wash your hair at all? I dont think I could go shampoo free. Because I like to wear my hair curly and straight on different days right now I only shampoo every other day and if I wear it curly I skip the conditioner (it weights it down)also if I wear my hair curly for more than a few shampoos it gets really tangled and messy. I want hair like Giselle (victorias secret model). My hair is the same type as hers and if I had more length it would look the same but I dont have time to sit and curl it w/a curlng iron. I will look into the re-coil though thanks!
My hair is mostly 3a, but the underneath layer is nearly straight. I get great results from using Jessicurl Gelebration spray under my styling products. It really enhances the curl. Also, I plop, and diffuse a little, which also help.
Can anyone explain to me what the term plop means?

I will have to try that! Anyone tired any of her "light" products?
I use Aloeba as my daily conditioner, with a little Too Shea on the ends. On the rare occasions when I shampoo, I use Hair Cleansing Cream. I love Jessicurl products.
