Curly locks advice?

Heyy, so I was wondering how you guys did your curly hair styling routine? My curls are a mix of Botticelli curls and corkscrew curls (you can look up pics on the internet) I have pretty much no problems with frizz, but I can't seem to figure out any styling techniques that works for my curls. So what techniques do you guys find most useful for your curly hair? Also what products, shampoos and conditioners do you recommend? Thanks in advance!!:)

    I wouldnt shampoo often. Co-wash instead. It cleans your hair just aswell but it keeps it healthier. I like the kinky curly line and curls line.

    I love plopping! I usually crunch water out of my hair using a towel or T-Shirt, then add my gel. My products are below. I style my hair a little bit, since I like clumping, I try to curl some of the curls together. Then I plop my hair with an old T-shirt! (Check out some videos on youtube or search it here.) I leave that for about 30 minutes, take it out, then let it air dry.

    Waterlily716 has some awesome curly hair videos on YouTube and she discusses cleansing and styling. I use the Organix Coconut Shampoo 1-3 a week and I use the conditioner from the same line every day. I scrunch my curls with LA sports Gel(which is only $2-$3 for a big bottle) Then I might plop for a few minutes depending on how wet my hair is.

    Good Luck on your Curly Hair(:
