Are You On The CG Routine?

Just wondering how many 4a's/4b's are on the CG routine. I'm on a modified routine.
"It moisturizes my situation... preserves my sexy."
I am on a modified CG routine. I shampoo once a month.

My hair likes cones. I get less tangles, it grows more, and it is more moisturized when I use conditioners with cones so I continue to use conditioners with cones and just shampoo every 3 to 4 weeks. Although haven't experienced any build-up I just shampoo on schedule to avoid it.

I used to be on CG but when I started getting cornrows done, I started using SLS free shampoos the days that I undid them, so I shampoo about 2-3 times a month.
I have kinks, coils and curls on this head.
Certified PJ. I need rehab.

I'm 100% CG...everytime I try shampoo (any type), my hair gets so dry I have to use almost half a bottle of conditioner to repair the damage.

I wash at the very least twice a month, but co wash almost everyday. Either in teh morning, or at night, then just wet it in teh morning to refresh the crushed, slept on curls. Use castille soap only, 1 part soap to 2 parts water, carrot oil and a little rosemary eo.

Temporary HG products: Fantasia IC gel W/ sparkle lites, ORS jojoba oil. Soaking wet, put them in, dash out the door the epitome of cuteness!

I'm CG too!
My mother thinks it's so weird not to use shampoo
I explained the CG concept, but she still if my hair is clean!
So now I just tell her 'I'm washing my hair', and leave it at that

Once my Mom asked what I was doing in teh bathroom for so long. I told her I was "pooing", she yelled, " Well shut the door and turn on the fan dammit!"

LOL@zsazsa...I have been very reluctant to tell people about my no poo system for that same reason. My hair looks healthy and shiny and is clean, but whenever I mention conditioner washing to non-curlies (and even curlies who haven't heard of CG), they look at me like I'm crazy. How long have you been on CG, zsazsa?

pacammi - LOL! That's a mess!

Kbaby - I am LOVIN' you for turning me onto Suave's Tropical Coconut. I had a hair fiasco this morning that almost made me late for work (Some conditioner I was trying to leave it fought with my gel and ended up cottage chessy and STUCK to my hair!) I co-washed with the Suave and STILL managed to make it to work on time AND look decent. Furthermore, my hair is really soft and I like it ^_^

I'm doing a modified deal but I'm slowly going longer and longer without shampoo. I'm finding that I'm shampooing more for PJ experiment fixes than anything else.

What are the "poo"-ers using to shampoo??

As for the pooing I tried having that convo one time with a friend and she too thought my hair wasn't getting clean like zsazsa said. So I don't bother anymore Oh well....

Using homemade bars of lemon rosemary soap, or castille soap with rosemary and carrot oil and water in a spray bottle, more control that way. I'm a bit of a control freak.

I'm on cg, and I love it. It's the best thing that I've ever done for my hair's health, next to giving up texturizing. The only time I ever shampoo is if I tried some heavy 'cone product for some reason or another, which I occasionally do. Then I shampoo it off as soon as possible.

I am kind of fiending highlights, and one of the things that's putting me off is the prospect of having to use protein conditioners, and hence at least occasional shampoo. I just don't want to do this to my hair, which seems to dry excessively with even the mildest of shampoos.
Kbaby- after my Mom's reaction, I figured I'd keep that nopoo to myself
I've been CG since the end of April.
I was at the local library, and the title of LM's book caught my eye, and thank God it did.
I had retired my hot comb and flat iron about 2 weeks prior, and my hair was a good mess!
After reading the book, and experimenting with some of her ideas, I finally realized I needed to comb my hair (that finger styling was-is not for this hair), and that I had to cut those straight ends off!
My hair is looking and feeling better every day

Asja -- gurl, anytime! I'm trying the CB tonight, I'll let you know how it goes.

Zsazsa -- I totally agree with you about CG helping with the healthiness. It's not for everyone, some curlies have no problem pooing, but everyday my hair seems to be getting softer, curlier and fuller on no poo. I am falling in love!

I am a modified CG. My hair loves proteins & gels so I use them. This causes some build-up. I shampoo with Dr. Bronner's Baby Mild Shikakai soap as needed. This averages every 18-22 days. I avoid cones and sulfates.

I tried being strictly CG and didn't like the results.
LOIS (OS); cottony, TYPE 4 hair, fine/med strands; no cones bcz my hair hates them; last relaxer '98; now low porosity, ignores most natural hair rules; BC #8

faves: suave, v05 shampoo, conditioner (my own), raw shea butter, castor oil, peanut oil, aloe juice
I'm modified, I guess. I don't use cones but I do poo when my hair needs it.
Kinks, kinks and more kinks

Current Goodies: KBB Hair Mask, KBB Deep Condish, JC WDT, Oyin Juices & Berries, Oyin Shine & Define, Oyin Whipped Pudding
Faves & Raves: Oyin Juices & Berries, KBB Deep Condish, JC WDT, CBSS WSHP, KCCC, Henna
Not so Goodies: Proteins & heavy oils...
Current Challenge: kinky & twisted! (ahem, two-strand twisted)
I'm mostly CG. I use IC gel in one of my mixes and it has a cone. Other than that, I'm completely CG. I can't even remember the last time I shampooed.
Nappy is not an 'N' word.
