Shampoo and Conditioner for type 2a/b hair???

I am new to the CG method and have type 2a/b wavy hair. My hair is relatively thin but still tends to frizz a bit, especially in humidity. My goal is silky beachy waves. I've had a hard time finding products that tame frizz but don't make my hair flat. Currently, I'm using Garnier Fructis Curl Nourish shampoo, and Shea Moisture Coconut Weightless Hydration conditioner. I also use VO5 coconut as a co-wash.So far these products are working decently, but I think they're made for curly rather than wavy hair.ANY SUGGESTIONS MUCH APPRECIATED! :)

Hi Samantha, Do you feel like the products are weighing your hair down? If so, then you may want to switch for some lighter products more suitable for wavy hair. If you're wanting silky beach waves, I can tell you my favorites and give you some suggestions on how to use them. Camille Rose Naturals Coconut Water Leave In - I just use a small dab of this and scrunch it into my hair. The result is super fluffy curls that flatten out into beach waves by day 2. The key is not to put a lot. Be super sparing with it. DevaCurl Light Defining Gel - this is another really light styler that I like to use for fluffy waves. Comb your hair out when it's wet. Then use the praying hands method to smooth the gel onto your waves and scrunch lightly. The key to beach waves is to be a little more stretched out than a normal wave, which is why the combing part is necessary. Ouidad Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel - if you're finding that frizz is a problem, definitely go for this. It's expensive, but worth it. Use the same styling method I outlined above and you'll get similar results. Hope this helps!
I also have similar waves! I like shea moisture Jamaican black castor oil clarifying shampoo every two weeks or so to remove build up. For cowash I like As I am coconut cowash or I'm using a local brand cowash called long hair don't care. For conditioner I use the Giovanni avocado and olive oil line. Some of my favorites... hope that helps!
