But on the other hand I've had fairly positive reactions to it as well. I agree that saying no sulfates, no silicones is the way to go. Some of my friends and my mom have even asked me to type their products or recommend things without "bad ingredients."
I've also discovered from other curlies that some of them avoid shampoo just like I do, without even knowing about curly girl.
The worst is when a girlfriend asks to borrow shampoo though lol. I just have to be like, sorry don't got none. Or hand them my no-lather cleansers, which isn't what they think of when they say "shampoo."
I'm actually one of those curlies. I've pretty much avoided shampoo since I was about 8, because I hated the way it made my hair dry and brittle. I later found out about CG and was able to eliminate my silicone use accordingly.
