What do you already use? I'd vote for BRHG.

I don't use anything. I need ideas! Ive straightened (flat iron) my hair for 10 years and am now trying to go back natural. I'm pretty sure I'm a 2b now but a 3a if I can ever get it to go back to the way it was.

Without knowing your properties I'd suggest
-BRHG (hard hold gel)
-re:coil (curl enhancer, dries out some ppl)
-Renpure Organics Keratin or Argan oil conditioners
-KCCC (gel/curl enhancer)

You might be able to find some of that stuff locally a little cheaper.

Curl Junkie Repair Me. It's a protein treatment with a built-in conditioner so you don't have to do them separately. Sometimes after I use Repair Me I do a conditioner on top of it for extreme extra conditioning, but I will always use this. Much easier and more pleasant to use than any other protein treatment. Doesn't leave my hair like straw.

Lovely stuff.

I'm not sure about your hair properties or what works best for 2B hair, but if I had $25 I would buy anything by Oyin, Aubrey Organic, or Curl Junkie. I've heard nothing but good reviews about their products.

If your hair does ok with glycerin I would definitely try Curl Keeper. It's one of very few products I like enough to continue ordering online.
