First clarifying wash - trying CG again

Hi All!

I have done CG before but I have fallen off the wagon. I want to "re-start" CG today (luckily I have quite the stash of products from my previous attempts) and was wondering if you had any advice to really enhance my curls for those first couple of washes? I know at first they will be a little lackluster, but I will appreciate any input!
I too am just hoping back on the CG wagon. I think protein has helped me a lot. Already better results in the 1 week this time compared to the 2 months before.
2c/3a mix and very fine, normal porosity
Shampoo: Loreal EverSleek Sulfate-free (Only 1 or 2x a week)

CoWash Suave Naturals Coconut or VO5 Kiwi Lime Squeeze

Rinse Out: Giovanni 2chic Avocado and Olive Oil or GVPCB


Leave in: More Suave Naturals Coconut or GVPCB Always diluted with water/epsom salt spray

Products: AG Re:coil with EcoStyler Olive Oil gel or HETT gel

Its called keratin complex infusion therapy deep conditioner, from Target. Ive used it twice now, and it has been good both times.

I know a lot of other people do a homemade one with gelatin that seems to work well too.

Just make sure you add a lot of moisture to add afterwards. Or else your hair gets dry and frizzy

But if you're a 2 or a 3 (wavy, boticelli or corkscrew) I can recommend Jessicurl's videos on Youtube. Here's one of them but if your hair is different look for other videos, she has one for just about each type of hair.
