Reccomendations for my sis?

Hey, y'all! I've found my curl holy grail which is essentially just let my hair do what it does. My sister isn't a member here so she's asking me to ask you a few questions.

So she's a 2b/c with low porosity and she says:
Can you ask what products people recommend for curly/wavy hair that is also fine? Something to control the frizz without weighing down the hair or making it greasy? Bonus points if it's an eco-friendly product.

Thanks in advance!

    I'm a 2c and low porosity (:
    I have thick hair, though, but I hope I can still help. My mother has fine hair, but both she and I LOVE Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo! It's wonderful and moisturizing without being greasy. I only use a dime size. I don't know how the matching conditioner would work for her, but it works on my thick hair excellently as a leave-in. Maybe she could just use some on her ends or use it as a rinse-out? It's also another that's a "little goes a long way."

    Beautiful Curls Leave-in for Wavy to Curly Hair was kinda too light for me, so it should work well for her. Beautiful Curls Gel for Wavy to Curly Hair is great! It's also a little light for my hair, but my fine-haired friends like it a lot(:

    All of these products I mentioned are all-natural, btw.(:
