My very long guide on how to go CG

So I remember when I was new I was excited to go CG but had problems pulling all the information out there together. I thought that the articles I was reading were great, but they were all over the net! I knew that I wanted to write an all in one guide to going CG and tonight I wrote it. Took about two hours.

Please tell me what you think. I'm hoping it'll be a useful resource to newbies

It's my most recent blog post. It looks longer than it is because of the page formatting (skinny column for blogging). Link to my blog is in my sig

Your blog looks great! Your CG explanations are wonderfully clear--and it doesn't look too long or overwhelming. Great job!

Most of us have found that KCCC not working well with other products is just a rumor. I've used it since last April with just about everything but other KC products. I didn't find the KCKT moisturizing enough. I use it with all of the products in my signature and more--with great success. Since KCCC is so popular, wouldn't want people to think that they can't use it with other products.

Thank you so much for posting this! It definitely has some info in it that I wish I had known when I first went CG.
Extremely helpful!
Wow, nice job! I bet that took a long time. I wrote a 20-page addendum to the CG book in the summer for my "curly workshops" with my friends and cousins. It took forever! Anyway, I'm sure that will be a great help to the newbies.

Thank you very muh for that, it was extremely useful. It certainly did clear up a lot of things for me. I have a question though, I have been on cg for 3 weeks now, and I have been wasing my scalp with a moistourising conditoner, but my scalp does get oily and smell. What should I do?

That one can build up on people. I'd recommend starting over and co-washing every other day. If it gets greasy again add some lemon juice. If that doesn't work, there are some other things you can do and everyone here is happy to help!
