I've tried being cg but...

Hi everyone,

I think I'm recovering very well after my operation.

I can walk now without limping. I still have pain and the symptoms haven't gone away. My incision scars are healing well and I use alcohol free antiseptic wipes when I change my dressings.

Back on topic, I had my first shower and tried the L'oreal Ever Pure Colour Care Moisturising shampoo, conditioner, and deep treatment masque I bought last weekend. My hair was so happy that even the looser curls I have in the front curled up, matched the curl pattern in the back, and had volume. It wasn't flat and limp afterwards. It does have cones and mineral oil in it though. My hair doesn't like co-washing either. I will use Tresemme Naturals shampoo to clarify to get rid of the build up. I think I can't go completely cg as my hair doesn't like it. I'm tempted to try other products before I decide on staples. I know the coconut and apple one I saw on the self has a water soluble cone so I may try that first. It has a detangling spray as well.

My hair is in twists under my satin scarf at the moment. I did put my hair into cornrows but I'm giving my hair a break from them for a bit.

I've been natural for a year and 2 months so far. My mum has followed suit and has gone natural too. Yay.
Hi - don't know what your operation was but it sounds as though you are doing well.

Some people do great using the cg method, others don't. I think most curlies benefit from washing less often and finding better products and techniques. That was my most important "take away" from the curly girl method. Different strokes for different folks as the saying goes.
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
Hi curlypearl,

I have posted about my operation on another thread. At least I know what's wrong with me.

It's difficult trying to keep the moisture/protein levels in this weather. The weather here keeps changing and that's when I have problems with my hair. I'm forever changing my products because of the weather. I don't use anything with glycerine in the winter because my hair will feel like straw if I do. My hair 3c/4a is dyed copper but growing it out, fine/medium density, low/normal porosity but a lot of it. I might go back to cg in the summer but I need to find products that don't weigh my hair down for me to use throughout the year. I do protein treatments (peanut butter). My hair likes products with cones but doesn't like any hydronated proteins but likes other types of protein.

I will have to keep trying different products until I find the right one. The things we do for our hair to look good lol.
