Yes, she uses the term sulfate-free cleanser. Would you believe...I never considered sulfate-free 'shampoo' to fit into what she meant but, of course, why wouldn't it? (If I wasn't on my phone I would insert confused guy here.) I think because I started this journey die-hard no-poo and now I think CO when I think CG. Hmm.

That's funny people would get feisty over such a thing...but we are a finicky bunch at times, aren't we? Personally, I couldn't care less if I classify as strict CG or modCG or whatever...lol...as long as what I'm doing makes my hair look good!

Thanks for the info! I learned my something new for today - can I be done now?
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
