Default Advice: Hair Care Routine

Hi! I really like reading these message boards. I would like to know if anyone follows the hair care routine as laid out by Andre Walker in his book. I'm just not sure I want to go without shampoo (try CG). Andre's routine seems simple, which is good because I am not one to spend a lot of time on my hair. Does anyone follow Andre Walker's advice and get good results from doing so? Thanks a lot!

Isn't that Oprah's stylist? I am curious to know what his method is too.

Hi. Thanks for replying. Yes, Andre Walker is Oprah's stylist. I can't find my book, so I am writing this from memory. I believe for wavy hair, he suggests washing every other day with a shampoo made for normal hair. You are supposed to condition your hair on the other days. I did buy Curly Girl yesterday. I just might try looking for a gentler shampoo.

hi, hmm yes i guess you could try looking for a gentler shampoo. i find that many of the shampoos i use [like tigi, loreal] are way too drying to use every day. i haven't read the book and haven't followed his advice to a T. just getting advice here and trying more things as time goes by.

good luck with the CG if you decide to try it out. i'm off to wash my hair now with less shampoo than usual !~

I used to wash my hair every other day with shampoo for normal hair, but now that I'm doing CG my hair has improved. Its shinier, wavier, and has no frayed ends. Every other day with sulfate-heavy shampoo was too much.

Default Silicones?

Silicones should be avoided if you use a shampoo without harsh sulfates because they will not rinse out. Is that right? Is there another reason silicones should be avoided? I read an article here that said that some people use water-soluble silicones. Lorraine Massey, in another article on this site, said that all cones should be avoided. Can someone tell me why they are bad for your hair?

I think it's the detergent shampoo that is bad for your hair, not necessarily the cones. But since you can't get the cones out without detergent, it's best to avoid cones.

Hello Rileigh! I use a modified CG methode. I wash with an aloe based shampoo and used alot of conditioner about twice a week. I use Aussie Gel to hold the curl a bit and water with gel in it as a refreshener. It works pretty well although I haven't found anything that keeps the frizzies away in the southern humidity! LOL!

Good luck working it all out!
