Overwhelmed newbie-2b/c, fine, high porosity, medium density
I've been trying to search, read, educate, etc. but there is so much information and at times it seems conflicting and I am overwhelmed and confused. I'm looking to find cleanser, conditioner, styling, etc. products for my dry, frizzy, very easily weighed down hair. I don't know if I should use sulfates or not, proteins or not, silicone or not. As my hair is very dry, I try to use moisturizing products (with shea butter, oils) but then my hair becomes so soft that it will not hold it's curl. If I use a styling product that has too much hold, my hair is very crunchy and the curl pattern is more wavy and less curly, which makes my hair looks stringy. Ugh, can you help me try to figure this out? Also, I tried looking at which products people use with a similar hair type to mine but I can't figure out what they are as everyone seems to use abbreviations.
