New "Modified CG" Forum?

Like Tree5Likes

(Btw, sorry for x-posting -- I was asked to post to a few forums in order to get feedback. )
A note to anyone who follows a modified CG method or is thinking that their hair would be better off modifying the CG method:
NC.com will add a "Modified CG" forum to CurlTalk if there's interest in having a forum specifically for Mod CGers to share modification recommendations, modified routines and products, request help from other Mod CGers, report what part of CG is working/what part isn't working, etc.

Gretchen, et al with nc.com, will gauge interest and take it from there -- So post if you're interested.

I myself try to stay fairly close to CG but am certainly open to modifying the method as needed to benefit my hair, and I know I could learn a lot from others who already have.

I think that's a great idea!!!! Full CG just didn't work for me so it'd be great to talk to others that do more of the "mod" version!!!

I would definitely be interested. My fine, thin hair can't handle CG.

I would be interested also. I tried a new leave-in Suave conditioner and I had the best hair day in months. Guess what? It has dimethicone! Gasp I know, but I am going to continue to use it because I like the results. I will of course cleanse properly when needed.

What makes it "modified"? Using some cones/sulfates?

I'd love one as well. Especially since my hair is needing less and less conditioner.

Agreed...I think wavies are probably the most modified CG-ers, but I can see others with fine hair or weaker patterns maybe being modified as well.
