Fall/Winter combos: Pretty much use the same products year round
Spring/Summer combos:

Favorite styling techniques and why: Doing all cleansing and rinsing upside down, plopping- speeds dry time and enhances curl, cold water rinse- reduces frizz and adds shine, sleep on a high quality silk pillowcase- reduces tangles and retains moisture.

Techniques that didn’t work and why: Pineappling-gives me a headache, Duckbill clips-
just can't seem to get them to work no matter how much I try.
