One question that came to mind when reading your post is did you use a sulfate shampoo without silicones one last time before starting the CG method? Many people (including myself!) for get this important step. They either don't use a sulfate poo one last time or use a sulfate poo that contains silicones.This step will clarify any buildup you have and let you start with a clean slate.
