HELP!

My hair is type 2 i think - wavy (can curl more if I don't comb it when wet) and the under layers are very coarse (2c) in comparison with the top layers which are smoother (maybe 2b)... it goes very dry and frizzy if I put nothing on it after washing.

I currently switch between Aveda and Alterna shampoo/conditioner which work great for me, but I am having trouble deciding which styling products to buy.

I don't mind spending a bit more on my hair products either.

I am desperate to find a fantastic:
1. Leave in conditioner
2. Leave in serum
3. Heat protectant spray (I blowdry and straighten my fringe)
4. Straightening balm
5. Product to leave me with soft (not crispy!) beachy waves

If anyone has good products please let me know!

Thanks so much

    I've never really used a separate leave-in conditioner before when I was CG, so I used to take a little bit of my co-wash or rinse-out conditioner and use that as a leave-in. For waves, some good products are the Herbal Essences Set Me Up Spray Gel or Mousse, Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Enhancing Spray or Defining Mousse, and Sunsilk Waves Of Envy Wave Enhancing Spray Gel. For straightening, you can use Herbal Essences Set Me Up Spray Gel, max hold gel, or mousse. Hope that helps!
