Being CG means not using sulfates nor silicones on your hair. So you'll basically just use products that are water soluble, as you won't have the sulfates of your (sham)poo to wash them out anymore. You'll probably need to avoid mineral oil/parafinum liquidum too since they aren't water soluble.
How often you wash your hair (either co-washing or conditioning cleansers) is up to you and your personnal preferences.
A lot of us are modified CG,meaning that we will sometimes use a low poo to get rid of build up, or some of us will even still use some cones since they feel their hair needs it.
But the most important thing is doing what works best for YOUR hair!! What works for me may not work for you at all since we all have uniques types of hair ..
Going CG is trial and error!
