I cowash about once a week now...use an acv rinse everytime I wash. I regularly condition about three times a week, the rest are just a water rinse to get the daily crud out. I use Suave...because it is so cheap
When I am co washing I will sometimes add some brown sugar...love that squeaky feeling you get after using it.
After the rinse of the conditioning I use a honey rinse...makes the curls 'stay' in place...and get that shiney look it gives
Use any gel that I happen to have and go. I love the whole non hassle of CG routine!
