Help picking some products to try?! please :)

Hello everyone, I was wondering if some of you would help a girl out?

I have fine, 2c/3a, low/normal porosity hair and was wondering if you would be able to recommend some products for me to try?

I live in an area with varying weather right now. One day it could be low humidity/low dews, and then next it is high!

I would like to take advantage of the sale going on right now, so time is of the essence.

Thanks!
Curl type ends up being relatively unimportant because it's transient based on weather, product, technique, etc. The best thing to do is look for others with similar hair properties and see what they use. It's a good place to start looking for new things.

And what do you currently use or have tried that work or don't?

I've tried several of the CJ items listed for my hair type, most with some success except CCCCL. I've tried many things in the past but recently got y hair analysis and want to start over fresh. There is a lot to list.

I am sorry to be so vague but it's all very confusing and overwhelming.
I don't know what works for you, but in varying dew points (we tend to have them here as well) you really have to watch the glycerin in your products. At least for me, in lower dews glycerin leaves me with dry frizzy hair. In higher dews, it's frizzy and a bit poofy. When the weather varies, it's good to have more "stable" products with no glycerin or at least glycerin close to the bottom of the list.

Also if you have low/normal porosity, I'd stay way from heavy butters and try lighter oils. Also a protein in a styler might be beneficial.

Fine, low/norm porosity, and low/norm elasticity when wet and dry.

I can't use straight oil/butter, but can use them in well formulated products.

Have you tried making FSG or okra gel? You can customize your ingredients to suit the dewpoints, etc.

I tried making flax seed gel but I don't think I did it right :/ it was extremely runny and although some parts of my hair looked ok, overall it was slightly greasy/wet looking and kind of waxy feeling.
I am trying to stay away from glycerin due to the fact that the few points where I am fluctuate daily.
