omg, thanks a million for taking such time and effort on writing this. I recently posted a thread regarding confusion on the cg method and now im starting to understand it more. And i love your idea on writing down the steps that is something i will consider... But the gel you use does it have to be specificly for curly hair or can it be just a regular one..With no silicones. Thanks, im going to start cg soon so need all the info i can get and your post was fab
