So I gave up on CG less than a week ago thinking it wasn't working for me. BOY WAS I WRONG!!!!! I even went and bought silicone frizz fighters and shine enhancers and loaded up my hair. My hair was NOT happy at all! It felt dry and just wrong. So I'm back. I learned that doing CG might seem like a long process at first but in the long run you can actually get away with less products! Doing CG I use trsemme naturals to co-wash and as my leave in and pantene mousse or Fructis pure clean gel for hold. That's it! I was really hoping I could get touchably soft curls, but it just isn't in the cards for me. Without a strong hold product over top of my leave in conditioner I get massive frizz. I couldn't be happier to be back to my old familiar routine and products. I'm never leaving again!
