I am not a licensed anything, beautician, cosmetologist, barber. None of that. I am the child and grandchild of beauticians. YOU ARE TRYING PRODUCTS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Just my two cents:
Find a licensed professional beautician, cosmetologist or barber that will work with you to keep your hair cut and trimmed. This person should be invested in your scalp and hair health and will work with you through regular maintenance to keep your hair looking it's best.
Shop for products that work with the style you are rocking. As a natural, you likely don't use the same products you would use when you relaxed. To achieve certain hairstyles, you need certain products. If you see a look you like, inquire about the products used to achieve it. In addition, ask your stylist for product recommendations.
Purchase your products from storefronts/online that have an actual return policy, like Sally's or Amazon. Some products you will like, some you won't, some are expensive as hell and you don't wanna be mad if you can't take them back.
Results will (and should) vary and if you do nothing else, test patch before going whole hog on new products.
Natural hair is a process (just like relaxed hair is a process). What works for one curly girl won't work for another.
Lastly, you and your hair are beautiful. Whatever you have, little or long, is gorgeous. All hair is good hair.
