My kids are older (11 and 14) and do have curly hair. I found out about CG, but I was concerned about them scrubbing enough if they just co-washed. So I put them on sulfate free shampoo and silicone free conditioner- figured it was similar to their old routine but healthier. My 14 year old who had been having issues with oily scalp is no longer oily. I think it would be good for anyone!
