wavy/botticelli newbie needs cg help

i need some help. pretty new to cg. have read the book twice now. i get the thing about no-poo & have seen the dvd that came with the book.

here are my questions:

how often should i be washing my hair? is it 1 day do the no-poo & one condition, and then 2-3 days just the no-condition? the book didn't really clarify this. i have little ones, and so just getting back into the swing of taking care of me again, if you know what i mean--ie. in the past i was lucky if i got 2 showers a week sometimes.

how to cut down on frizz? i have super coarse hair, the frizz is all from ears down.

if i use even a little bit of product (probably all on the no-no list, i'll have to double check) my hair gets build-up and greasy looking. how do i fix that?

what products should i be using? i have no-poo, one condition, and the anGEL(i try using a big handful of that and it doesn't seem to last too long--ie. next day my hair is totally flat again). are any of the other devacurl products appropriate for my hair type?

    well your build up is probaly from using products on the no no list, so it would be a good idea do to one last sulfate poo to get rid of the build up, as for the products that you should be using, anything with no cones or sulfates, i personally like to use things as natural as i can. my fave is oil. bt lots of curlies use different things, its just a matter of finding what works for you

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
