I've been a CG convert for about 5 months now. What I've learned is what works this week, might not work next week, lol! Products that worked in the winter, don't work in the summer. But I do believe technique is as important, if not more, as product. For the moment, my technique is working. But even a couple weeks ago, I was applying product to soaking wet hair, so it's constantly evolving.
