I haven't tried this myself, but I've been told that Mane n' Tail shampoo/conditioner is great for thickening up hair. It takes about a month to see results, but I've been told it works! And yes, this used to be for horses, but they reformulated it for humans

I have a few questions. Do you cowash everyday? I have a greasy/oily complexion and had to wash everyday before I started CG today. Also, to go along with that question, what is the daily routine? I don't have long hair so I can't do the pineapple thing so don't I have to wet it every time?

sorry I'm just so confused
Well usually, a greasy/oily complexion is caused by your scalp overproducing oil in an effort to make up for the dryness. (Hope that makes sense). I personally don't cowash every day - I use a sulfate free shampoo every few days and a sulfate shampoo every few weeks to get rid of buildup. I don't have short hair, so I can't answer your pineapple question, but here's a thread that might help!

6. Leave in

A lot of people just use their cowash conditioner as a “leave-in” conditioner. Basically, you scrunch a small amount of conditioner into your hair after you're out of the shower. This is step one of your "base coat" (as Rudeechick calls it).
Is this your conditioner that you use to scrub your scalp clean or the conditioner that is used to soften your hair? I am sorry if this is a repeat question. I am very new to this.
Several ways to look at this. Usually people use a cheap conditioner to cowash with, and then they use something more nutrient-rich and thick as a leave in/conditioner. Hope that helps, let me know if you have any more questions
