Hello and an intro!

Hello everyone! I wanted to introduce myself here. I'm Jen. I'm 32 years old and mother of 2 gorgeous boys (2 1/2 years and 5 1/2 months). I used to be a member here, but couldn't log on with my ID, so I re-registered. After a lot of thought and some fun purchases of some hair product I decided to go CG yesterday. I actually tried it for about a month about a year ago. I quit because it felt like so much work and my hair was very dried out and brittle while doing it. I probably wasn't conditioning enough and also was not patient enough to wait for that initial transition period. I'm gung ho about trying it again because I've seen the before and after pics and know that my hair can be so much more. I have 3a type hair, and on some occasions I've seen some 3b curl poking through. I think what prompted me to give this a try again was the fact that after the birth of my 2nd son 5 months ago my hair got GROSS looking. It was dried out and nothing I tried helped. I've bought so much shampoo and conditioner in the last 5 months that I've actually had to hide some of it from my husband because I'm so embarassed. A friend of ous bought me some [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Knot-Today-p-207.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-knot-today-leaveindetangler]KCKT[/buylink] and [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] from whole foods the other day, so since I had some other CG friendly product on hand I shampoo'd for the "last" time yesterday.
I plan on reading through some posts today to re-familiarize myself with some of the method, but what I'm asking of you all is for some support! Please help me get through the first few weeks here and if you could point me in the direction of some helpful posts, or fill me in on your routine that would be great! My routine at this point is:
co-wash with Suave naturals
condition with vive-pro (the baby pink bottle, no cones)
leave in: KCKT
srunch in [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] and some clear gel on my ends(thinking about purchasing bio-silk RHG)
scrunch out the crunch with a little Jane Carter Nourish and shine (love the smell!)
Thank you all!!!!!!
