all these products! help

Most of the products you have listed have at least one peg-modified silicone in them. which should make them water soluble. However some people still have problems with build up with those types of products.

If you do a google search (upper right corner of every page) you should be able to find reviews on most of these products. That should give you a good idea of what the girls on the board think of them. Your curl pattern isn't going to matter much on how these perform in your hair. It will depend more on your texture and porosity. And even then what works for someone else might not work for you or vice versa.
CG - 3/27/09
3b - dry - medium texture/medium porosity!
Co wash/rinseout/leave in: currently auditioning products
Styling: lube and BRHG
Of all those you have listed, the Hask spray (instant curls) and the curl life spray are the only ones I"ve tried. I used the Curl Life pre-CG, but it has denatured alcohol in it, which is very drying, so I don't use that one any more. The Hask spray is ok, but it left my hair very sticky feeling.

There is also the issue of the PEG cones in most of those products as Tinah mentioned. Some people also have problems with polyquats building up too, which are also in most of those products.

I'm sure you're anxious to try everything, but I'd suggest starting with the least expensive choices. If they don't work for you, you're not out a lot of money and you can always work your way up if necessary.
co-wash - Suave Naturals Coconut
condish - Trader Joe's TTT and Refresh
styling - FOTE, shea butter, jojoba oil, LA Looks

Kryptonite: Stearalkonium Chloride, quats
It's been so long since I used the Marc Anthony Strictly Curls Curl Defining Lotion. It didn't have a strong enough hold. It doesn't have any silicone.

I have the Samy Get Curls Re-Energizing Potion & like it. I think it gives a little crunch/has a little hold. It doesn't contain silicone either.

I can't comment on the others. I've never tried them. I guess I could have looked at the ingredients though, huh? Sorry.

But oh man, I want to try that Nexxus Alluring Curls Creating Gel Elixir! It has some things in it my hair (& nose) loves; marshmallow root & lavender oil. And some good hold ingredients!
