The key to choosing the right products is understanding your hair properties (not so much the curl pattern, but the properties of the hair itself, like texture, and porosity). The website livecurlylivefree.com has a ton of information on how to determine your hair properties.
Once you have an idea of your properties, you can get more specific product ideas by finding people with the same properties and looking at what they use. Many people list this stuff in their signatures, but there's also an entire thread over in the 2s forum called Share Your Hair Biography that can give you a great jump start also.
You might also want to check out some of the stickies on the General Hair and Newbies forums regarding the Curly Girl method (CG) and other tips and techniques to help you make your hair look and feel its best.
