New to CG method! need help!

Okay, so I recently bought the new Curly Girl book along with Deva no poo and One condition. These products are a bit pricey, and I was just wondering if any of these products are curly girl safe:

herbal essences totally twisted gel
suave tropical coconut conditioner

I have no problem re-purchusing No Poo (it lasts me a very long time) but I have a feeling I am going to run out of One Condition very quickly. I also was looking for a lower priced gel vs the Deva angel. thank you for your help!
New to CG Method

Deva Curl No Poo
Deva Curl One Condition/ Suave Naturals Coconut Conditioner
Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Gel

I'm a swimmer, so keeping my hair healthy during swim season is always a challenge!
both products are cg and a good condish replacement for the one condition is the GVP conditioning balm at sallys usually 6.29 for 16 ounces...good luck its cg and highly moisturizing
Well, Herbal Essence is good but it does have a ingredient I don't remember the name of but, in the Curly Girl book it is one of the thing you DO NOT want in your shampoo or conditioner. After reading the book, I got devacare no-poo and devacare one-condition. But, I also got angGEL and so far it hasn't been working out for me I think it's TOO light weight gel. I have type 3B and it gets puffy and frizzy, I do recommend enjoy strong hold alcohol free gel(yellowish gold gel in a squeeze bottle) and or enjoy texture cream(blue and white squeeze bottle). Hope this helps!
i use both products and they are completely CG. The gel has one water-soluble silicone, so no need to worry about that. The conditioner is CG but it may not be very good for a rinse out. I only use that as a co-wash. If you don't have very dry hair then it might be fine. If you live near a dollar tree you could get some conditioner there, I just bought some yesterday and it is called Spa Haus: Salon Conditioner, it has no silicone's and it has a whole bunch of good oils for hair like Olive Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, and Avacoado Oil. Plus, its only a buck.
3a (more 2c-ish in the winter), coarse, thick
Co-wash: Suave Coconut,
Rinse Out: Suave Coconut (my hair does better with light, chepo conditioners)
Leave In: No leave-in during winter
Gel: No gel during winter

My primary gel is Herbal Essence Totally Twisted and I really like it; since I've started using Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition (also CG, and cheap) I've been getting decent 3rd day hair. 2nd day hair is a cinch with that gel and condish.

I think Suave coconut has a protein in it, so I don't use it, but any suave/vo5/white rain with do.

Also, I'll say that you really dont HAVE to get the super expensive products. Pretty much every product I use is stuff you can find in CVS/Walgreens, a grocery store, target and is inexpensive.
