    Maintenance of curly hair

    I have curly hair that can get unruly and frizzy. Ive tried lots of products, and most do work, but does anyone have a certain product or regime that works for them? I would love to hear your input I usually use mousse and some leave-in conditioner. It would be a plus if its an affordable hair care brand :
