Learning to love my waves

I just recently decided to go back to my natural wavy hair. I've been researching and reading everything I can find regarding CG for the past month and still am a little lost. My hair is fine or normal (can't quite figure out which), normal or high porosity (I think, have been flat ironing it for over 10 yrs and dye it blonde) and I think I'm a 2b??
Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I just started using mop c hydrating shampoo (love it) and biosilk roch hard gelee. Actually did my first co-wash and plopping today. Not sure if my hair likes the plopping... But am amazed at how the cowashing didn't make it greasy (was worried about that). Still trying to figure out how to fight the frizz. Anyway, I want to thank all the veteran CGs who have taken time to post tips and product reviews, I've learned a lot from y'all!

    If you're a 2b, be careful about over-moisturizing, unless your hair is dry for some reason. I use a low-poo, but no-poos make my own 2b hair flat, and a little greasy at the top.

    Good luck!

    I hate my wavy hair((
    I hate them so much that recently I have made a short hair cut...
    Can't say it's worse this way,
    but I really now understand it was a bit stupid...
    Any ideas on how to take care of the short haircut?)

    Thanks Gretchen & Claudine. Blanca, I'm still learning, so I really don't have much to offer. How short did you cut it? A few years ago I did the chi straightener which caused my hair to break off. Ended up having to shave my head using a 1 guard. When it was really short, it was super easy lol. But as it grew out I used a flat iron on it and never let myself enjoy the natural waves.
