I just became a CG for about a month now. I have been so excited to try it and even started a FB group to get my curly friends in on it.
I keep waiting for the magic to happen but my hair is just so out of control. It has gotten a little better as the days have gone by but I'm used to being in control of my hair, not the other way around
Also, my scalp has become EXTREMELY dry, itchy, and flaky. I have seen a dermatologist before and have been using a prescription shampoo and scalp medication for years. I was hoping the CG method would fix the issue.
Right now, I use Suave Naturals to co-wash, generic conditioning balm, Beautiful Curls leave-in, HE Set me Up, Deva Care Arc Angel, and Rock Hard Gelee. I also use Organix sulfate free shampoo once a week (Argan and Tea Tree kind). I have used Jojoba oil a few times too.
Please help! I am ready to give up. I am so embarrassed with my scalp. I have been reading about he ACV rinse so I will try that next.
