Newbie, 2b/2c hair.
sooo I just started the CG method yesterday. Today was a cowash of my own version, but i need a second conditioner, a leave in, and a styling product for my waves
My products for now:
Trader Joe's Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner
Paul Mitchell's Styling Serum (has water soluble silicones)
Almond Oil (my ends are super dry and damaged)
My routine: (alternating days):
1) Massage my scalp, then comb conditioner. Place almond oil at the end, then leave in while I wash, before rinsing
2) Use Low-Po to clean my scalp, then comb in conditioner, leave it in while I wash
After I shower, I'll put on my styling product before plopping my hair for 10 minutes. Then I will allow my hair to air dry for as long as possible. If I have school, I'll use a diffuser to dry my hair about 80%
My concern is frizz and humidity. I want a product that will tame my frizzy waves without making my hair so heavy. I also need a different conditioner to use on my off-shampoo days, so i can alternate better.
Just fyi, I have straightened my hair for 4 years before deciding I needed a change, which is why I'm starting with low density products.
Any advice from my fellow wavies, please??
Best Wishes, Alix
