Welcome! You'll find tons of helpful info here.

Have you figured out your hair's properties yet (texture, porosity, elasticity)? These characteristics are really helpful to know in order to find the right products, and will impact product choice much more than the curl pattern (2c, 3b, etc.). For more information, check out this site:

Live Curly Live Free - Curly Hair Basics

Once you have an idea of your hair's properties, you can start getting product ideas just by checking people's signatures. Many people list their hair properties as well as favorite products. Unfortunately a lot of the process can be trial and error, so don't get frustrated if you don't get the results you want right away. Many of us continue to learn new things about what our hair likes and dislikes after months, or even years of trial and error. And never be afraid to ask lots of questions. There are so many incredibly knowledgeable people on this board!
