Out of curiosity I tried my pre-cg HG mousse yesterday. All I can say is YUCK! I don't know why I loved this stuff so much. Stringy, producty, dry hair. I can't wait to wash this stuff out. I tried super soaking and scrunching in a lot of thick condish, but still it's just, ew.
I'm so glad I found better options!

Haha, what was it? I used to live by VO5 mousse in the red can before CG. Silciones with a capital S.
fine, thin, normal/(low?) porosity. Mod-CG. Usually I can't co-wash more than 1x a week, & sometimes I have to use T-Gel in rotation due to scalp issues.

Co-wash: VO5 Volumizing
Poo: Giovanni 50:50
RO:TN, Nexxus Youth Renewal, Alba Coconut
LI: KCKT
PT: gelatin PT, ION EC
Stylers: Giovanni mousse, TIGI Curls Rock amplifier (a-cone), Curls Rock Strong Hold Mousse
Gels: SCC spray gel

Like meeting some people you used to know and thinking - how could I possibly ever have gotten along with these people?

Great thread. Yep, I bet if I tried some of the mousses and gels I used pre-CG that I thought made my hair look great, I would be shocked at how yucky they would feel now! Just goes to show how much you learn about your curls here!

Thanks NC.com for all I've learned (so far!)
