I need regimen help PLEASE.... :)

Ok, so I've gone nuts and I'm buying every product in the world. I've gone from cheapskate to PJ in 2 weeks.

But the problem is, I'm not sure of the best arrangement or order to use the products. Can some of you all help me, or at least give some ideas?

Here's what I've got so far...

Activate Hydrating Shampoo
VO5 Moisture Milks Passion Fruit Smoothie Condish
Sally's Honey and Almost condish
Biotera Curl Cream
Down Under Naturals Curl Shaper Gel
Loreal Studio's Tightly Wound
GF C&S
and today, I bought BHRG (haven't tried it yet).

Now I'm not sure what do to when, and which conditioner to CO wash wish and so forth.

Any input appreciated Oh and I have limp, very fine hair and fairly skinny curls

Experimenting with Activate shampoo, VO5 PassionFruit Moisture Milks condish, leaving-in Sally's Honey and Almond, scrunching in BRHG
I'm not familiar with those products, but you want to use the lightest conditioner to CO wash. Also, with fine limp hair you probably dont want to use too many styling products. Maye experiment with 1 or 2 at a time.

HTH a bit!
I agree - experiment with 1 or 2 products at the same time. No more at first. And ENJOY experimenting! That's the fun of being a PJ - trying new combinations and discovering new things you love!

The sally's I would use to condish with (and let it sit in my hair for a minimum of 1 minute), detangle, etc. I would rinse it all out. I would use ONE of the creams (a dab) and mix it together with ONE of the gels, and distribute in my hair. That would be my starting point. BHRG is great for humidity.
Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or hump it.....Piss on it and walk away.

I also have fine hair and it took me a while to figure out how to get away from that skinny 80s look.

Whenever I try something new I try to have a control sample....So I might use the same conditioner three days in a row but change up the gels and see what happens. Or use the same conditioner and gel three days in a row but switch up the application technique for the gel.

For fine hair the less it is disturbed when wet and drying, the fatter the clump. So I don't do much plopping because that tends to skinny up my curls. I might take a microfiber towel and wrap it around the length of my ends and squeeze gently then take gel on the flats of my palms and smooth the hair between, all in one swath.

Take notes as you try different combos of your new products. That helped me.
3b, fine, but LOTS of it...
