2B colored redhead new to curl-specific hair care!

Hi guys! Just thought I would introduce myself!
I have a 2B wave that sometimes falls into more of a 2A wave on the second or third day, and I color my hair red ALWAYS!
I just started my new hair care journey and I am very excited!
I just bought Yes To Cucumbers shampoo and conditioner that I will start with, plus Kinky Curly Knot Today as a leave-in. I have also sampled Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper and I would like to buy a full size bottle as I have never had such amazing body and curl as with this product!
However, right now, I have several styling products I was using before my decision to switch over, so I will be using those up before moving on to curly hair approved styling products, but I will be washing/conditioning/co-washing with approved products until I can make that next step!
I am very excited to learn about my hair because I have never known too much about it except that it needs moisture, and I have always just let it air dry with a little mousse and hairspray. Even so, however, I was never fully satisfied, so I would just put it up in a bun at night and have a slightly wavy, but mostly straight, hairstyle.
Now I know I can maximize my wavy potential with the help of these forums and all my newly discovered information out there!
Thanks so much, fellow curly girls!

Proven beneficial ingredients for colour treated or porous hair include coconut oil, hydrolysed protein, ceramides, 18-MEA and panthenol.

Kinky Curly Knot Today is more of a detangler than a leave in conditioner, it doesn't contain any oils and little in the way of the major emollients (cationic surfactants and fatty alcohols).
