CG-Friendly Products List!!

Like Tree29Likes

I noticed that the Yes To... shampoo line is also on the list, but I'm not sure if they're 100% CG since they contain sodium coco sulate (unrefined version of SLS; harshness may differ). So actually they're not sulfate free.

Once deposited onto the hair shaft, the amodimethicone is non-water soluble, and removing it will require a low poo (with Cocamidopropyl Betaine or Cocobetaine) or a sulfate shampoo. See here for more details: Amodimethicone and other Amine-functionalized Silicones.

I am excited to see these posts. I'm still in search for the products that will work on my hair. My hair is thin and I don't exactly know my curl type, but I think it might be a mixture of 3a/3b. I'm learning to love my curls though!
OMG. SO helpful. Finally something to categorize what is a "deep conditioner" and what is a "regular conditioner and leave in" and what is good as a "co wash conditioner". Its been so confusing!

Also, a question ~ are the shampoos/cleansers on this list needing to be diluted? Or is dilution only for clarifying shampoos (which I assume a clarifying shampoo is called that because they contain sulfates, which none of the shampoos on this list contain sulfates, correct)? I am learning so much new stuff I am losing some of the basic ideas.

Oh and I notice no Miss Jessie's products. Out of curiosity, any reason as to why?
2a in front highly damaged, 2b in back, Low low density, Course (!!) texture, Low porosity at root, high everywhere else, Medium length, lots of shedding.

Miss Jessie's products contain non-CG ingredients like silicones and sulfates.
