New to taking care of hair and I just wanted to know what usually you put in your hair? 

 I know there’s co-washing, shampooing, conditioning, leave in conditioner etc. I wanted to know what people usually put in their hair (if I missed anything) and in what order?

    What products and techniques to use will be more determined by your hair properties (hair width, porosity, density) than your curl type. To figure out your hair type, I think there are some guides in the newbie threads.

    Personally, on a daily basis I use nothing after low-poo and rinse-out conditioner. I have gotten good everyday results from using a leave-in only. For a finished look I would use leave-in+gel.
