Well, do you think you'd want to do a no-poo routine? Many curlies find that works best for their hair. You'll want to start by finding a good styler (silicone-free). And look for silicone-free conditioners and sulfate-free shampoos. You'll probably have to experiment a lot to find products that work for you. 
Yeah, it's really just  lot of trial and error. Be sure to find some routines that you like, too, like using a diffuser to just partially dry your hair Or like sleep on a satin pillowcase. That sort of thing.  Here's a blog that has some good info: http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlreading/kinky-hair-type-4a/how-to-create-your-hair-regimen
Hey there, I've got a head of fine 3c hair too and I wouldn't recommend a no-poo regimen. You should check out the porosity of your hair: a big part of your regimen should depend on that (I only found out about that a little while ago, but my hair feels TONS better since).  Regardless of the porosity of your hair: shampoo only once or twice a week, max! You probably don't need more than that ;) Also, try to rinse your hair in cold water only,  not when you're standing under a hot shower! Cold hair seals the hair cuticles, which ensures the moisture and protein is kept INSIDE your hair, where it should be :) Hot or warm water opens your hair cuticle: not nice for daily rinsing, but very useful in deep conditioning. Hope this helps and good luck!
