Smile new to CG - need advise!(on VO5, Suave, LA looks, Deep Conditioner etc

Hello girls! i am sure all of this has been discussed many times, i am new to this site, but have been researching this website for a while, and just now getting used to new terms. I have been using wen for a year and sickkkk of spending money. My hair did get better and my scalp is practically healed but i am guessing its due to no shampoo method. I just went to drug store and bought VO5 strawberry cream conditioner, suave naturals coconut milk. Any advises what should i use as co-wash, and as leave - in or i need a third one, or to start this is ok? also which deep conditioner and occasional cleaning shampoo you recommend. Cheaper the better,because i already have 1000s expensive items. i currently use aveda aloe and aved humecade pomade. My hair is red very wavy course and loooove to freeze. Any help would be appreciated. thank you

Welcome, naturalredheadd! This is a great place to find the info, help and support you are looking for! These links will help get you started:
Live Curly Live Free - Curly Hair Basics
Curly Hair Tips, Styles & Products - NaturallyCurly
Start Here!
Many curlies here have great results with VO5 Naturals, Suave Naturals and Tresemme Naturals (my favorite). I also like Shea Moisture shampoos. There is also good info in the product review section. Once you know your hair properties, you will be able to narrow down the products that will bring out the best in your curls. After that, it's trial and error.

I think you should use the vo5 more often than suave or alternate for cowashing, because your suave coconut has protein and you might get protein overload if you use it too much. Or you can keep using vo5 or suave until it stops working then switch. Just listen to your hair, whether it needs protein or moisture.
