Help please!

Hello! I am completely new to this and was wondering if someone could help me. My hair is a mixture of curls, loose on top and super kinky on the bottom. Recently it's been getting bigger and bigger. I don't feel like my old regimen of Herbal Essences shampoo, conditioner, then mousse is cutting it anymore. I got some samples of matrix Sleek which works very well but is very pricey :( If anyone could give me some suggestions for washing products, after shower products, and second day products within my price rangeI will be grateful!!

    Hi. Try adding some leave-in conditioner and then gel, scrunched into your hair when it's pretty wet (the gel I mean).

    If you really want to cut out the frizz, try the Curly Girl Method, here's a quick explanation if what it is:

    I personally use Tresseme conditioner which is super cheap, $5 for a huge bottle. And I use this clear conditioner I got at the Dollar Tree, so it's also really cheap, $1 for a decent-size bottle.

    I've never achieved second-day hair, mainly because I've never tried. I'd love to hear some other's opinions how what products to use to get second-day hair!

    Hope I helped!
