That's really what it comes down to in the end. I was full CG for quite a while (about a year without knowing it, then added a silicone serum, again without any knowledge of CG). After I found this site I did strict CG for six months, but eventually started adding a few non-CG products here and there. The difference was that I had the understanding of what ingredients did what and how to balance protein and moisture. I probably stick with CG products about 85% of the time, but I have found a few products with cones that I really like (as well as a gentle, pH balanced sulfate shampoo).

Modified CG since 11/5/11
