Hi Ladies - I'm new to the site, but have been checking it out for a few days. I don't know what products to begin using. Should I use a curl shampoo, conditioner and buttercreme? My hair is nice and wavy when wet with a conditioner. As soon as it dries it looks like a pulled Brillo pad!

I checked out the Curly Cocktails, but don't want to plop down $50+ for something that won't work. Suggestions?!

I've been natural for a few years, and going back and forth from straightening combs (yikes!), braids to Dominican blowouts. But now that I've found this site, I'm ready to try the products and let my curls stay and shine!
