Default Cheap products for a first time transitioner?

I posted before but I'm looking for alittle more info ... I'm planning on starting the transition process into the CG method and my hair is damaged pretty badly. I'm a mixed west indian(Trinidad) and African American girl with 3b-3c hair and I was looking for a few ways to get me started into the process. What are good products that have ALOT of moisture and ALOT of hold? My hair is very dry and is in a loose state currently.

I'm doing no sulfates, silicones of parabens to nurse my hair back to health. Do those products have any in them? I'm looking for something with really good hold.

i would second the tresemme naturals as a rinse out conditioner. it is really effective.

I would also suggest ultrasheen duo tex as a protien treatment(you get a huge bottle for about $5)

as for hold it would depend on the style. if youre talking braid/twist outs i find that a setting lotion is really effective. i would recommend elasta qp design foam for a really strong hold

if you want something to slick your hair/define waves i would say wet line xtreme gel. that gel is some serious stuff. i no longer use gel but this was the stongest holding gel ive ever used. it is also very drying but i suppose if you found a decent leave in it would work well.

Ecostyler gel is great! I use the clear one which I think is the strongest hold, but a lot of people on here use other ones (I kind of want to try the olive oil, but I feel like you shouldn't mess with a good thing). Ecostyler seems to work w/ almost any hair type and it is very cheap (I also want to try SM curling souffle, but can't justify replacing my $3 gel with a $10 one....)
