It may take a bit for your hair to settle down and return to "normal"... Your hair is used to being stripped of moisture which, for me at least, increases natural oil production.
You need to give your hair at least 3 weeks on total CG - you have to give the system a chance. One day, let alone one week, is not long enough to let your hair adapt to the changes.
Make sure you scrub your scalp with the exfolicating brown sugar scrub. Scrub it good. I do it for 5-8 minutes.
Do a vinegar rinse.
When I first started CG, I deep conditioned 2-3 times a week. My hair was very dry but oily at the same time! It did take 3 weeks for my hair to adjust to the changes. I couldn't be happier with it right now.
