I'd get a copy of Curly Girl by Lorraine Massey and read it cover to cover. I don't follow CG or really even Mod CG right now but I did learn a lot about curly hair and it helped me to understand my hair better. I didn't want to buy the book so I borrowed it from the library. What type of curl do you have? My hair tends to look pyramidish if I don't use products with enough weight. Rich, creamy conditioners and plenty of moisture really make the biggest difference for me.
