Help for an overwhelmed beginner

So, this CG method is all very new to me and I must say, I'm overwhelmed a bit. I was hoping for some advice from you all on how I should treat my hair.

I'm 2B, low porosity, medium density, coarse and long. Possibly high density, but not too sure. What regimen would you recommend?

Also, does anyone straighten their hair or style it with a curling iron or rollers sometimes? I haven't straightened my hair since my son was born, but I'd like to be able to again one day!

    Here is a good link:
    Pedaheh's Hair Blog: What do I need to start the Curly Girl method?

    General rule of thumb. Coarse hair doesn't like protein very much. Remember, your hair/scalp might look or get worse for awhile before it gets better!
    Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
    cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

    rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Beauticurls, CJ Smoothing

    jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC
    gels: CJ CQ, CJ Pattern Pusha, BRHG
