What product should I try????

I got a coupon for Ulta & want to try a new product. I am brand new to all of this. Best I can tell my hair is 2a/b, high porosity, high density, medium width, & medium length. I would like to try something to enhance curl, hold and control frizz without weighing my hair down. So, what should I try? Thanks!
I would definitely get some good Co-Wash. I love the As I Am CO-Wash that I just got in the mail. This stuff is awesome, it leaves my hair soft and the frizz is minimal. My husband says that it smells good too. I have no sense of smell so I can't vouch for that, I just have to take his word for it. I use Suave Coconut as a leave in instead of the As I Am because it is kinda thin. The As I Am is good too. Now if you are wanting to be curlier or if you are satisfied with the curl pattern that you have, a curl gel would be good to get. It seems like the curl gels make my hair curl up more, I have noticed since I ran out and am waiting for my gel to come in the mail that my curls are not as coily as they previously were back last week.
I find it easier to search by hair type, can't swear that CurlMart does that. I know that Curly Hair Solutions does but alot of people like different products than their line. I honestly thought for the longest time that everyone loved Curl Keeper, I was wrong LOL. It was a love/hate relationship for me and I found out that Ouidad worked better for me and it wasn't a 100 percent CG friendly product. However, it worked really good for me.
I am trying a new curl defining gel, Ur Curly because it is easier to get where I live. Sometimes I can't order online and it is easier for my husband to pick it up when he hits Walmart on pay day.
It is really trial and error, however Suave Coconut Naturals is a HG product for alot of girls. I am learning the lingo too so if I flub up, I apologize. HG-=holy grail product. I like it too.
Make sure to get a good deep conditioner as well if you like to color your hair. I am a pink haired gal, and bleach about once every four months to six months depending on how long the pink lasts so a good deep conditioner is key for me.
I am not sure if any of this has helped, I am new to this as well. I am about a month in of nothing but Co washing. I do have to do a shampoo once in a while because my hair gets wonky looking if I dont. I haven't done it in two weeks since I learned how to co wash better. There are tons and tons of information on this website. This website is amazing to say the least. Make sure to read the introduction post for newbies. I found alot of information there.
Also learn to plop or some call it plunk. It does work wonders for me. Some it doesn't, but I do love it. I find that it defines the curls more and cuts my drying time in half. If I don't plop I am looking at four hours drying time and that is COMPLETELY dry. Gracious, I hope that I helped some LOL. Good Luck, it can be overwhelming at times. Just stick with it! You will be a pro in no time flat.

UR Curly Tight Curl Enhancer
You can use curl enhancer gel to enhance your curls. there are so many brands you can choose from.
I love Softee aloe Vera curl enhancing gel. It gives light hold with minimal crunch. Also try la looks sport gel. I personally don't like it because it makes my hair hard & dry. But a lot of girls with type to hair love it. If I had read the reviews, I would not have bought it. Softee also has a protein gel as well that a lot of girls love. All 3 gels are very cheap. All under $5. The la looks sport gel you get a huge bottle for around $3. The other 2 are smaller jars, but a little goes a long way.
Have you considered AG re:coil curl activator or Biosilk Rock Hard Gellee? These can work well together for wavies and I find the latter useful for canopy frizz. They both last ages because you don't need to use much.
UK based, Curly from birth 2b-2c fairly porous with cherub tendencies and frizz halo! Faves include KCKT and Keracare LIs, Deva Curl, CCCCL, Ecosyler gel and Be Curly Curl Enhancer. I donít mind the odd cone - shhh CG since August 2012
To me as a 2a:b the
Most valuable product as a daily tool from ulta is Biosilk Rockhard gel.
