Default Curly Girl Method questions

I want to start using the curly girl method but the only conditioner I have is Cantu Shea Butter Co-Wash Conditioner, Is it possible for me to use that conditioner instead of a normal conditioner; and would it be okay for me to use it as a leave in? Or should I just buy a normal conditioner that meets the requirements. Also it seems like the method lends itself more towards wash and go's but my neck length hair (which is really defined when wet) always shrinks into a barely defined medium sized Afro every time I do one, would the suggested way of using the gel keep my hairs' definition? And I'm not gonna lie I style my hair a lot, so I don't know how well the no comb rule will work. For those ladies who do the CG method have you been able to style your hair into up-dos and hair styles that normally require combing or is it easier to just leave your hair be. Is the method really all that it is cracked up to be, and how has it worked for you?

There is CG and there is modified CG
Im mod. I dont use silicones, sulfates, mo but I do use lopoo and combs because my hair and scalp need that. I dont wear wash and goes. Dont feel like you have no wiggle room in CG. I love CG because whenever I fall off the wagon my hair pays for it. I find my hair is better moisturized with CG because Im prone to buildup. Silicones make detangling easy but make my hair dry.

Hey Sis, the Curly Girl Method requires no silicones. If Im not mistaken Cantu has Silicone. I've been out of the loop for some time,the may have changed their formula.

Again, I've received great results just by using simple methods, either the LOC (Liquid, Oil and Cream (Conditioner, Tresemme Naturals,no silicone) or the Liquid, Conditioner and Oil. I've kept this real simple for a year now after making tons of mistakes her are my results.

Findings: you have to stick with a process for a period of time ( 6 months, watch what happens).

Good Luck, with Simple and Cheap.

Yes, Cantu has cones and it builds up a waxy residue on your hair pretty fast. Aubrey organics, dessert essence and several in target are cg friendly
