Here's a link to the hair products I use and for me personally, its a full on task to take care of curly hair. Most days, I actually wear my hair up in a bun or braid. I do get away with not washing hair for a few days because curly hair allows for it, just my preference. You do have to comb out your hair though on wash days because any type of bun or braid seriously knots my hair. The other element that I believe is the secret sauce for maintaining and getting my hair to look good is actually coloring my hair. I get my hair highlighted and honestly when I do, it controls my hair even more.
Let me know if you have more questions.
