Yeah, be prepared in case your hair goes through a freak out transition period (Mine sure did, but hopefully yours won't!
). The transition period will end, and your hair will be much better off in the long run.
If there are any products you're curious about as far as whether or not they're CG-friendly, click on "Products" at the top of the page and then on the far left of the menu bar, click on "Product Reviews". You can check individual products for whether they are sulfate and silicone-free. And there are also often reviews from curlies who have used them which I find helpful.
If you haven't already familiarized yourself with your hair's properties (texture, density, porosity, and elasticity), that would be really good to do. You'll want to choose products and routines that work well for your
hair's properties. I learned a lot about all of this stuff by reading LiveCurlyLiveFree.com.
Hope you have lots of fun being curly!
