Default Hello everybody, I am new!

I am so glad, that I found this forum. Since almost everyone seems to have straight hair (or straightens the curls) I felt very alone on this planet! And by the way, I did the same straightening thing for years, and it was always a something inbetween with a lot of frizz.
Months ago I read something about CO-washing and I tried it and it felt, as if my hair wasnt washed at all and it felt heave and a bit greasy. But maybe I did something wrong. So, I am open to try again! As I wash my hair only once a week, tomorrow will be the big day! I already figured out, that I have low porosity, (my hair is swimming!, what a surprise!). Until now, I always left the CO in my hair, maybe this wasnt a good thing. I am not quite sure if I am 2B, maybe this will be clearer after some CO-washing.
Can I use every Conditioner?
I am so happy to be here and Im excited about finding a lot of friends!

Type 2 hair can usually take more washing than other, tighter curls. Try whatever you think might work --- no need to follow "the rules"; it's whatever works for you.

Echoing what Claudine19 said, the CG method is definitely not for everyone. There is no one size fits all. It's a journey of experimentation. Let us know how it is going for you!

2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high. Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
