CG doesn't work for everyone. I gave it a try for YEARS on and off and I just couldn't get it to work for me. I still do a conditioner wash between regular old shampoos and I do like products that rinse out clean but I don't drive myself crazy over it anymore. You can modify it any way you like or just discard it altogether - do whatever works for you. I think lots of people on this board have tried thousands of combinations of every suggestion ever talked about! Myself included! LOL!
