I currently have waist-length hair and, for the first time in my life, am going to get it chopped off to a short bob this Friday!! I am extremely excited to have it gone (my head will feel so much lighter), but am also nervous.

What styling products (gels, mousse, etc) should I use? I have to stick with the less expensive products, so might not be able to get the really good styling products. Plus I love quick routines.

My hair is mixture of 2b and 2c. My hair is thick, fine, and I believe it is low porosity?

Please help!
