I thought I was doing the CG method by conditioner only washing & finger combing but in order for it to work properly do I need to co-wash on a daily or every other day basis? I know you said you stopped using gel...do u think its better to initially start off using the gel? Thank you again for sharing your progress... I now plan to do the same...post pics after every wash etc. i think it'll help me hold myself accountable. Final question, are u able to do twist out, Bantu knots and braids outs while doing the CG method or do you have to go through training your curls before you do that?
