Default Hair kinda oily after a day of starting the CG method

My hair is so used to using shampoo everyday so yesturday I just started with washing it with vo5 conditioner. Can i wash it today again with just conditioner or should I wait till tomorrow? This is normal for it to be greasy at first, right?

Short answer, yes it's normal to have greasy hair for a while after starting CG. Mine was greasy for about 2 weeks. I cowashed every other day or so until my scalp calmed down

I've been in the process of going CG for about a month, and finally all my products are CG. The first week or so, my hair felt kind of greasy, but it didn't look greasy at all. Part of it is that with shampoo you get that squeaky feeling and become used to it, and you don't get that with conditioner, so I think that's why it feels wrong at first. It is so worth it though, even though I've had to try so many different products, because my hair is soft. My curls look healthier, and there are NO flakes in my hair! I have learned so much about my hair!
