Detailing noob...

On my last black car, I was never able to maintain the proper black paint, going through 10 dollar car wash...
With my M though, I want to be able to properly maintain and protect the paint. So I was thinking about making the investment to learn to wash and wax my own car.
I am a complete noob and a little bit overwhelmed, intimidated by all these chemicals and machines...
There seem to be endless products you can use..
What are the essential products? and steps? and do I need to do them every time I wash my car?
wash? dry? clay? polish? seal? wax?
Any information that might help will be greatly appreciated.
