No two heads of hair are alike. I've seen CG give some people amazing hair, but I've also seen people with amazing hair who are not CG at all.
What I have learned through trial and error is that it is possible to find shampoos that will leave your hair feeling clean without leaving it feeling dry and stripped. If your hair likes protein I can't say enough good things about CHS Treatment Shampoo. I've also heard some great things about Redken Fresh Curls.
Ultimately I found technique to be far more important than product. I had inadvertently become CG almost 3 years ago, but I didn't know anything about the different techniques (was still towel drying, etc). My hair still looked lousy, even with good products. Conversely, I've re-introduced some sulfates and silicones back into my routine and my hair still looks good.
