Yes, if you start CG it's normal that your hair needs time to adjust. Personally, my hair get better... but that took about 6 weeks before I saw the improvement.

The frizz and/or dryness is also possible because of the dwpoints and humectants. This is a very important subject to learn about for caring for curly hair. I use different products with different humectants in it, depending on the dewpoints. For example, I can't use products with glycerin in my hair when the dewpoints are low.

What also can help to prevent dryness is using a leave-in conditioner. You can also use your rinse out conditioner as a leave-in too. Add a little of your silicone free conditioner when your hair is wet, and use the silicone free gel after the leave-in. Your hair will also become less dry when you don't use sulfates anymore. You'll start co-washing the next time you're going to clean and style your hair?
