DEFINE: I would say for you to buy LOREAL PARIS EVER CURL, the whole line is amazing adds definition to your curls, gives shines, and has no sulfates. 

FRIZZ: What you can do is buy a paddle brush, it elimnates frizz and gives your curls a smooth look. Also you can buy an anti-frizz serum, that will add shine and keep the frizz away. 

I have 3a/3b hair.  Was told by one hair dresser years ago, that I had a lot of hair, but it was fine.  Then told it was coarse.  To define my curls, I always use ReCoil.  The key to not getting crunchy hair (hate that) and softer hair (love that)--is using a smaller amount. I apply a small amount (you have to experiment) to the palm of my hand--then I spread it between both hands & apply to hair.  This is the only product that really truly defines my curls.  Just don't use too much or it's grossly crunchy looking and feeling.   In the higher humidity I also add a little oil to soften & take away the frizz.  I used Macadamia Oil--it works the best on my frizz, but didn't like the Dimes... & other chemicals in it that most oils have.  I have Redken Diamond Shatterproof now.  Not crazy about the applicator dropper, and it doesn't work as well as the Macadamia one.   I may buy that one again because I don't use the oils that much anyway.  Oils help the frizz though.  


The best way to choose ingredients/products is by hair properties and not curl type (it's transient depending on product, technique, dewpoint, etc.) Here's a link to help you with yours Once you determine your properties, go on curl talk and look for others with similar hair. See what they use and do. It's the best way to start.
