I would love that too. My hair seems to over condition really easily with the CG method.

Argh, I'm way too late to the party on this one, but I would have really loved there to be a Modified CG forum! I think it was great idea and here's why:

The 'General Discussion about Curly Hair' forum seems to be heavily populated by CGers, and therefore does not live up to its name. This makes it quite unhelpful to mod-CGers or non-CGers, as a lot of the discussion is based around keeping strictly to the CG method. This is very weird, because strict CGers actually already have their own forum, 'Trying a shampoo free method?'. Having a Modified CG forum makes good sense and I hope it happens one day.

You do not have to CO-wash to follow full Curly Girl, the book permits for sulphate free shampoos and Lorraine Massey's company even makes 'Low-Poo'. There are other shampoo free methods that are not CG, such as water only, sebum only, baking soda and vinegar so that is not a strict CG board at all.

I'm definitely a modified cg. I have VERY thick curly hair so it makes getting products out of my hair. If I do just co washing, my hair will need to be clarified. Occasionally ill use a sulfate poo to get it out & start fresh.

CG doesn't equal strictly cowashing! If you low-poo regularly you're still CG. CG = no sulfates, no cones.

But yes, I would be interested in a mod-CG forum.

I've committed to trying CG for 6 weeks but I think I'm going to have to modify it for my crazy hair.

I'm considering trying all the products I used to use when my hair fires decided to be curly. I had great curls back then and I know the products were far from CG.

Polyquats are terrible. I seems to be able to tolerate butters and oils in the most sparing amounts as long as I low-poo frequently.

LOL I'm really late on this! Definitely on board for modified CG! I tried full blown CG but my waves just don't seem to like it. I pretty much took CG techniques and applied them to my routine...modified plop, using sulfates but limiting how often I wash, and limiting the amount of silicone but not limiting them all together. I also learned that my waves only like a little bit of product. LOL when I first joined this forum I mistakenly thought I needed tons of product! OMG I was lucky to get one day hair! With my modified techniques I've sometimes experienced 4 day hair!

I'm definitely interested! I wish it didn't, but my hair absolutely loves silicones.

Default new modified cg forum?

Late on this conversation, but I'm in, what with experimenting. Co-washing and no-sulfates/silicones doesn't always do it for me (although for the first 4 years that did). I'm finding that I need to alternate. But I do have mixed texture hair - 2c-3a which makes it finicky.

My waves perform best when my hair is clean, and not weighed down. Cowashes + conditioner = too much moisture. Cowashes + no conditioner = too many tangles. Sulfate-free shampoo + conditioner = not always clean enough & difficult to apply conditioner due to tangles. At the moment, I've been loving the Elucence shampoos (available on CurlMart). They contain a sulfate, but one that supposedly doesn't strip hair. I haven't found it overly drying. I have an oily scalp, and like to be able to have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd day hair, and then wash on day four. These shampoos make it possible. As long as I use moisturizing hair products, my hair isn't dried out. I do tend to use a dry shampoo on day 3 to freshen my scalp.

Current favorite winter routine:

Day 1 (curly day): Elucence shampoo + CJ rinse-out conditioner. Apply CJ leave-in (beauticurls) + Curly Kinks Coil Jam. Air dry or diffuse. Scrunch out crunch when totally dry.

Day 2 (wavy day): Brush hair with paddle brush. Wet hands with water and smooth/rake a little water though hair (from root to tip) to restore natural shape. Air dry. If frizzies remain once dry, rub Ouidad mongongo oil in palms and smooth onto hair to tame them.

Day 3 (wavy day): Brush hair with paddle brush. Apply dry shampoo, massage through scalp, brush again. Rake water through hair to restore natural shape. Air dry. Apply Ouidad oil as needed (to areas that need taming).

Day 4: wash and start over

In humid weather/high dews, I don't tend to brush my hair. I use CJ Curl Queen for my gel (over CJ CCCC lite) and re-wet the curl each morning and re-scrunch. But in the winter, my hair doesn't hold curl as well after the first day, so rather than using a stronger-hold gel (like BRHG) I opt for waves instead.

None of my styling products contain cones, but the Elucence shampoos would remove cones were I to use them. This is helpful when I go to the salon and they use cone-laden products on my hair. I don't need to buy a separate shampoo to rinse them out. I also swim once a week, and their clarifying shampoo removes chlorine.

Were I to use a silicone serum in the summer, the Elucence shampoos would remove that as well. This probably wouldn't be a solution for someone with damaged hair, but for my healthy hair and oily scalp, it's perfect.

Absolutely! Count me in. I'm so desperate with this Artic Vortex that I had to resort to modified CG. Hopefully it's a seasonal thing but I'm in for whatever works.
