So how many actually do CG now?

I am curious. It seems like less people do it here on the board than it used to be. I might be wrong.
Other -- I use shampoo w/gentle sulfates once/week, mostly on the scalp. I rinse or condition-wash in between. I usually don't use cones but don't avoid them like the plague if they aren't bad ones. I don't use any of the CG concoctions as they strip my color. I guess I use some CG ideas, but I really already had this routine before CG came around.

I've also been trying to avoid cyclo -ane (you know the cone) and other non-water soluble cones. I haven't decided yet if these modifications will work for me long term.

What about you, Kurlee?

Yeah, I would call myself "modified" in that I, like lazykerri, avoid cyclopentasiloxane like the plague, conditioner wash most of the week, and poo with a sulfate-containing poo roughly once a week.

I'm also really hyper-aware of ingreds in a CG-aware kind of way, but you already knew that.

i voted no CG.
i use a sulfate shampoo when i need it on my roots/scalp. while i do only use one conditioner and a little set it free to style my hair, i probably wouldn't be afraid to try new styling products with cones or whatever. i'm pretty much at the point where i go with what works!
but for now? my occasional wash with baby shampoo, conditioner and SIF is still working famously, so i'll stick with those.

Dark Brown Boticellis.
Current Routine: L'Oreal Vive Pro Nutrigloss conditioner, Light Headed Melting Gel. Weekly shampoo with Dramatics Color Care shampoo.
My modified is sometimes sulfates, never any silicones (the opp. of the above modified choice.) Once a month I use Kelate shampoo to get rid of any hard water deposits and any residue. I have been using Suave tropical coconut condish to wash but the last few days I've been co washing with One condish and rinsing it all out since i just got B'Leave in.

no CG for me, although my HG products are CG friendly, go figure!

other.

pretty much the same as most above. wash with low-poo, a couple of times a week, co wash with no-poo, use deva products (but other than that don't like products with cones), use a sulfate containing pooo periodically for hard water build-up.

Modified.

No shampoo ever(don't seem to need it) but I could not live without creamy stylers, something Lorraine advises against.
I have finally realized I look my best when my hair tells me how it is going to fall, and I just make suggestions.

I do co washes inbetween. I do avoid the bad cones like the plagues too but use the ones that can be removed easily by milder cleansers.

Use Sapp Moss, One Condition and RedKen Ringlet right now.
And to me this is kinda non CG.

I go between this and modified CG.
I'm thinking I'm a "modified CG-er". I CO mostly, but I used lots of conditioner because my hair likes it. I use a conditioner with a cone maybe a couple times per month, more to use up something I tried rather than because I really like what it does to my hair.

I am back to Conditioner wash only for the winter. Even though it is not very cold here this year.
Last summer I used a mild Sulphate free shampoo once a week.
I also use mousse which LM is against.
It simplifies my winterroutine as I only need a light washing conditioner, a heavier one for conditioning and the mousse as a styler.
"blessed" with all kinds of curls,2b in the front, mostly 3a and 3b , 3c in the nape of the neck

currently using natures gate conditioner and herbal essences mousse and gel.

Modified CG here, although I don't follow the routine for wavies to the letter. I wash with a shampoo bar once or twice a week, and CO wash on other days. I also incorporate ayurvedic herbs and henna into my routine, and use -cones in moderation (mainly amodimethicone).
Type 2b. Wash: WEN pomegranate or fig. Leave-in conditioner: Alaffia beautiful curls for wavy hair, Spiral Solutions Protein spray. Style: Curls In A Bottle, Ecostyler, or KCCC.

I now shampoo (Cream of Nature or CHS) once a month b/c I am too lazy to do ACV rinse and to make sure I have no build up. I still try to only use cone-free products.
My hair is naturally a combination of 3B/3C. No longer texturized. All natural! CG Routine: Devapoo, One condition or Elucence. Loving curl creams: AG Recoil, Mop Curl Cream, KMS Curl Cream and never without CK. Gels: HE SMU and KCCC with a little BRHG on top.
Still full CG. Still works for me.
3b&c mix, CO (most of the time)
