This list is great; thank you. My question is..if something I am using on this list has a P; has paraben in it, does that mean I shouldn't use it? Or is a little bit OK? Thank you

CG-friendly Products List!
I found the SofnFree GroHealthy Nothing But line of products and I'm wondering if they are CG friendly. I also wanted to know about Mizani foam wrap. I am starting the cg method and I need a line of products that are convenient to find and not super expensive. I have 3 daughters who are all natural so we use a lot of product.
For UK Curlies there's a brand called 'Naked' which have some CG friendly products. Although their products for 'curly' hair contain silicone's. But I use the intensive recuse conditioner which is silicone free and it's amazing. I have really thick hair and it provides so much slip! I also use their leave-in conditioner.

These products are available at Boots and there's a 3 for 2 offer atm.

Here's there website Hair | Keep Me Inspired | Naked Body Care
This is my prayer. That I'll die living just as free as my hair.
This is a very helpful thread especially since I'm not to good at looking at labels to determine if something is CG or not. Thanks for taking the time to put this together!

We should make a CG products database website for each continent .

What are the differences in ingredients between regular conditioners and deep conditioners? Because I thought that YTCarrots was a deep conditioner because it contains a lot of oils.

CG-friendly Products List!
This is a list of the commonly used products amongst wavies, curlies and kinkies. The other lists that have been started are quite outdated, so I thought I’d begin this one. I obviously didn’t include everything, so leave a comment below if you think I need to add something or take something out!

KEY
Shampoos are sulfate free.
Gels are (drying) alcohol free.
All products are free of non-water soluble ‘cones.
Water-soluble cones = WSC
Parabens = P
Heavy protein(s) or protein(s) high on the ingredients list = PH
At least 95% natural OR organic = green
Pricier products (>$2/oz.) = bold

NOTE: Some multi-purpose products will overlap in certain categories.
