I HIGHLY recommend these products.
Sallys GVP conditioning Balm from sallys beauty supply. $7. rinse out.
Tresemme naturals moisturizing conditioner as a leave in if you're protein sensitive. If not, vo5 or shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie. Tresemme is around $4, vo5 is around $1, and SM curl enhancing smoothie is $10.
And for a gel, try eco styler Krystal $5. It has protein, so if you're sensitive, try Clairol 3 in 1 mousse $3 or Herbal essence totally twisted gel or set me up gel $4. Gives me great curls.
My favorite combo is Vo5 and Eco styler. And i love switching off with Tresemme naturals as a leave in and rinse out sometimes. Hope this helps.
Oh and for hairstyles, high top buns, braids, side bun with a twist in the front or braid in the front, french braids.
