Newbie half wavy, half curly

VgoneCurlyVgoneCurly Posts: 4Registered Users Curl Neophyte
First off, I'm so thankful for this forum! I found it when I googled half straight half curly & im so glad! I used to have completely straight hair. After a serious illness, it started going curly in the back & now is curly except the front which is wavy. My last stylist didn't know what to do, so I found a salon recommended here & I went from HATING my hair to loving it! Now I've embraced a whole new type of hair & it's a different world! I'm still looking for products, but have started CG & can tell a big difference: less frizz, more curl, softened, not dry anymore!! Thanks so much to everyone here! I'm going to nag to try to put pics on this post. Before & after.
Texture: wavy on top, curly beneath (used to be straight!) 2c/3b combination. High porosity, very dense, very thick, below shoulder length.
low poo: Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat
Condition & Leave in: Giovanni Olive Oil & Avocado oil
Gel: Giovanni LA natural hard hold
I PLOP then Pinapple to sleep.
