Trying to get into hair care/styling, no idea where/how to start

Trying to get into hair care/styling, no idea where/how to start
For the longest time, I hadn't really cared much about my hair. I ignored it until it got long enough for my parents to complain (I'm only 19), then would just get a buzz cut, and the cycle repeats. Now I'm trying to take more of an interest in my hair, but I have no idea how to care or style.

First off, I find my hair is usually very dry and frizzy (I shower usually daily), and I don't really know how to change it. I made some changes after reading them, stopped shampooing (instead conditioner), and stopped rubbing my hair with a towel. Though this didn't change much, my hair is still dry and frizzy and I hate it. I hear heat doesn't help (I take hot showers), but I'm not sure what else to do. When I don't shower for a few days (like over the weekend), it's less dry and more wavy, but also greasy, so I can't leave it like that. So I want advice on how to stop my hair going dry after a shower, and what kind of products I need. Brands recommendations might now work, I live in Australia, so I might not be able to get US brands.

Second is styling. Next time I get a haircut (which is hopefully soon), I think I'll take some photos to use as a reference. After I figure out my head type and a cut that suits it. But should I ask for styling product recommendations from my barber, or should I ask for something here?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out. Hair care/styling is something I really want to get into, but I have no idea how to start.

Wash every two days and use coconut oil a couple times a week and leave it in over night.

Grow it out and let it be thick and healthy and use heat protector spray when blow drying.

Ideally I need to see your hair so we can guage where we stand with styles/products etc.

Don't use coconut oil as it will leave your hair oily and with a weird smell. Just wash them once everyone 4-5 days instead.

I would say just ask the barber who cut your hair to give you advice. My barber is well experienced but I would be wary asking someone not competent enough

Asking your barber is also a great idea. He will be able to give you decent pieces of advice on how to start

Would have to agree with asking your barber for advice. I usually ask my barber if there is something different about my hair. Like if its thinning in some places or its growing too slow. They actually know a lot more than you think.
