New to all this...HELP!

So, I had no idea people had so many different ways of handeling their curly hair. I've been fairly happy with mine for a while, but I suppose I could do with less frizz (though, I've tamed it with leave in conditionor by Fructis Garnier) and more definition. The top part of my hair is always unsure of what it wants to do, and takes a lot of twisting and manging to get it to curl right. The bottom does beautiful spirals, but it's like the top gets brushed through too much and gets flat. Most of the time, I get it good enough, but I always wish it could just look like the bottom layers so that I don't have to do the half pony thing so often.
The only thing I've done with shampoos is change to Garnier, which has worked wonders for my hair. It's much healthier and better colour. So I only use Garnier, any mixing of products and my hair freaks out and gets really dry. I've always tried not shampooing every day. I haven't been doing that lately, but it did work okay, I guess...just wasn't that big of a difference. I would shampoo every other night and the nights I didn't I just used conditioner.
So anyways, that's about the just of my hair care...I don't do any maintance in the mornings, just wash and let dry, scrunching it with a towel, but that's it. (I don't like to do too much).
So, I guess I'm just wondering what the best thing to do is. Is there anything I should be doing differently to keep my hair healthier and more defined? I would always be happy with more volume, more definition, and less frizz.
Go to the newbie board. There is tons of starter info so you don't get too overwhelmed. Going CG can be something that will give you the results you are looking for.

CG means "Curly Girl." It's a type of routine that many curlies here follow.
It's a gentle way of taking care of your hair.
I recommend it, although I am not considered CG anymore.
It's a good way to learn about your hair, find out what your hair likes/dislikes (ex. protein or glycerin). You can slowly add non-CG products like I do to find out what your hair likes (ex. what type of silicone, or sulfates) or you might fall in love with the CG routine and keep at it.
Either way, it's worth a read and some consideration, at least.
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.
