Default Keeping my curls beautiful

I am looking for way to keep my curls nice and bouncy and just not out of control. I currently use DevaCurl but I do want to see what else I can use. I am excited to see what I can learn from everyone so I can get my curls where I want them!

Default A few of my favs

Hey MsSauci. Don't be afraid to mix it up! I've become a product junkie in my hair journey. I wash my hair with Shea Moisture's Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo and condition with Karen's Body Beautiful Luscious Locks mask. This helps to keep my hair super moisturized and shiny which helps to tame the frizz. There is also a litany of product reviews on Tribe Called Curl | Welcome to the New Curl Order for you to check out under the products tab.

Hi ANaturalJoy, thank you so much for the encouragement, I haven't mixed it up because I've been afraid to. I am tight on money now, so I've been looking around for some new stuff, and I my head spins just reading all the ingredients of these cleansers and conditioners, and styling products and I don't know where to begin. No one I know here locally is a CG and well I just want to get it all figured out. I know, one step at a time, and I really am going to try!

Tell us a little about your hair properties, and maybe some of the friendly folks around here can suggest some things for you to try! I think a *lot* of us start out with Deva and move away from it. I found it stopped working for me after a time . . . though I should warn you that most of the replacement things I've found and like aren't all that much cheaper. They are, however, more natural -- so that's something!
3b, fine, medium density, low porosity
CG for 10+ years!
Wash: CJ Daily Fix
Rinse-out: CJ Argan/Olive, Regis Olive Oil, something by Giovanni?
DT: CJ Hair Rehab, CJ Repair Me
Leave-in: CJ CCCC Lite
Styling: Deva Styling Lotion (HG!!)

Well, ok, as soon as I figure out what that is, I will post that I'm off to find what those are!
