CG making it worse??
So I've been doing the full CG method for a month now. I've read on here that a few wavies have to do a mod method in order to avoid build up or other 'side effects'. Since beginning I really haven't had any issues with doing the full CG except for one:
My hair is definitely curlier/wavier, I actually went from a 2B to a 2C, and I seem to be able to manage it better than before EXCEPT it gets incredibly frizzy by the end of the day, and I HAVE to do CG daily in order to tame it. Before I went CG I was able to actually have decent 2nd day hair. Now, before I even go to bed, its a hot mess of frizz, knotted clumps and stragglers that get wiry. I've also noticed it seems to get really dry by the end of the day.
I don't mess with it at all before it's dry, and I plop. Also, I don't like to mess with it once it's styled, so I don't think that's the culprit. It just seems like I hit mid day and it goes crazy.
Any 2s out there have the same problems I'm having? I'm really confused because I look at the before and afters on the CG thread and mine is definitely not doing that. It seems like it got more wavy but the definition and moisture got worse...
Today I am trying something new. I switched from using HESMU because I discovered they changed the ingredients that aren't CG friendly, and I think that might be the problem, but I'm still not sure. I went ahead and bought a bunch of Curls product to see if they help a bit. I got new products for the leave in and styling. I really like my CO wash and my conditioner, so I don't want to change that. I'll follow up after a few days on whether or not the Curls improves anything.
Until then any help would be appreciated, and if someone sees that I'm doing something glaringly wrong that I'm missing, then I'm all ears!
