For whatever reason, I stopped getting emails about people posting to this thread, and for that I'm so sorry!

But, I'll try to respond to q's now..

my conditioner has proteins Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein and soy, is this bad? how do you find out if your hair doesn't like these things when so many have a protein.. how can i start totally natural..
i see the bs and acv rinse as a wash but how about conditioner?

then when you figure out texture and such how does that lead you to product? ugh
I think a low-listed sulfate is fine, but no sulfates is ideal. The wheat and soy proteins caused build-up on my hair, but here's an article with more info on proteins The Best Protein for Hair

Honestly, most of it is guess and check. I tried all the different types (cream, gel, mousse, jelly, etc) and took pictures. ALWAYS write down all your steps. I looked back at all the pictures and followed the steps for the results I liked best

I'm a 3a, so I'm not too sure as to what would work best for you, but I would suggest having a look at the 3b and 3c boards - the 3a board helped me soo much when I dived in!

Any suggestions if its ok to start, and which one for cowash and which for leave in, and if i use aveda humecant pomade should i not do leave in ( based on ur other reply)? also do you find its better to use gel before or after plucking?> i have wavy somewhat coarse hair that lovee to freaze. Thank you so much again
I know this isn't what you want to hear, but.. you have to experiment =\ I can't say that one will work over another, it's all guess and check. But it's fun! Take pictures, write down all your steps, and replicate the steps for the results you like best!

I actually just started the CG method yesterday, so this is super helpful! I'm just starting to really try to take care of my hair and increase my curl, so any tips are appreciated!
Wow, awesome! I bet your waves will get tighter after this method!!
