Default What is the cg method?

and who would it benefit (well obviously girls with curly hair...but I mean more specifically). I have pretty healthy hair but I want to make it even healthier and improve the texture. I generally have 2c hair but like most curly hair it's inconsistent (which I would also like to improve) as there are some tighter curls (3b) and straighter areas. Is it worth is to try it out...

Welcome, kelseyklipp! Going CG is definitely worth a try. It's a healthy way to treat your hair and sure won't do any damage. Here's a great summary of what is involved: The College Curly There are many on these boards who are 100% CG. There are also many who consider themselves "modified CG" - including myself. You'll also find some here that don't follow the method at all. You have nothing to lose by going fully CG to see if it works for you then tweaking the method if necessary. There are tons of tips and lots of support on these boards. Have fun!

Thank you! the link was very helpful, I just washed my hair today (non CG way) so I'm going to have to wait a few days until I start but I'm going to try it out

You'll need to use a clarifying shampoo first to get any silicones out of your hair first. Let us know how it's working for you!

Make sure your final shampoo has a sulfate but no silicones. I think Suave is a cheap choice. After you start CG, you can use a low poo which contains no silicones or sulfates.

Thanks, and perfect my local corner store sells suave and alright! I actually just ordered a very expensive (but worth it) shampooo, conditioner, detangler and oil from marakeesh. It has no sulfates or silicones and contains argan oil and hemp oil. So I think I will use Suave just as my final shampoo (my family can use the rest haha) and then the set for when I actually start the cg method.
