Default First weekend going CG.....

So I started the CG routine this past Friday night. I went home and "detoxed" my hair. I washed first with a normal sulfate shampoo to remove all cones. Then I did a baking soda/water mixture to remove all build-up. Then I used DevaCurl No Poo, DevaCurl One Conditioner, left in some of the conditioner, then used DevaCurl AnGell and some of the Lock it Tight Spray (I think that was what it was called). My hair has never been curlier!! I did the same routine on Saturday. I did notice I didn't really like the feel of my hair, it almost felt as if there was a layer of gunk on it and it just felt heavy. I am thinking it is just maybe too much for my hair or something. I read lots of good stuff about LALSG and the VO5 conditioner so I went to CVS and picked some of that up (by the way the VO5 was on sale for $0.77!!). I did DevaCurl No Poo, followed by the DevaCurl One conditioner, rinsed that out and used the VO5 Naturals Freesia as my leave in. Then I scrunched in some LALSG and let it air dry for about 30 minuted and finished drying with a diffuser. It was soooo much better! No more filmy feeling! My curls are great and so soft! I am looking forward to how my hair turns out in the next few weeks as I am sure it is adjusting to this new moisture it is getting! Thanks for this website, I have learned so much! I just wanted to share my first CG weekend with you all

Sounds like you are on a great start.

I have read that some of the Deva stuff can leave hair feeling coated. I've never used it so I don't know.

I used to use LALSG with good results so I am sure you will like it, especially in summer weather.

Good luck on your CG journey!

dont forget before and after pics!!
I found using ONLY Deva products made my hair feel similar, kind of coated... but I do like the No Poo a lot

Congratulations!!! I find that using angel alone can leave my hair frizzy. The past couple of days i've been putting arc-angel all through my hair in the shower, then when I take my towel off I scrunch a dime size of lalsg over the ends & have been getting awesome results!!!
