Thanks for the prompt replies, ladies. I appreciate it! Currently, I've been using Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo & Conditioner along with their Whipped Cream Mousse. I don't have any issues with the rest of my hair. It's shiny, the curls are tamed, and it is really long. It's just the flakes that are getting in my way. I tried going CG two years ago and it did not work for me.
