Hello from a kind of newbie!

Hello everyone. I have posted a few times but decided maybe I should introduce myself. I have been somewhat following the CG method without realizing it for 2-3 years now. I had joined the naturallycurly website a long time ago but it seemed confusing so I just never dug in. 3 weeks ago, I decided to purchase the Kinky Curly Curling Custard and was amazed at my results. I had remembered the brand from the site and that's when I decided to dig in.

I had been using Acure Organics Morrocan Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. I was pleasantly surprised to find the ingredients were CG approved. I have been out of state for the last 2 months and couldn't find it anywhere. I found the Mop Top and have been using it recently. Now, I can't decide if I like the Acure Organics or the Mop Top better. But before researching I was using Suave Flexible Control Hold Mouse which is full of not friendly CG ingredients. I have been a wash and go for the last 2-3 years. I decided to stop fighting my hair and work with it.

I have had trouble with 2nd day waves for the last 2-3 years. I still haven't found the perfect solution for me yet. I would just use a wide tooth comb which just pulled out my curls but I didn't know better. It felt awkward to not brush/comb my hair the last 3 weeks but I'm learning. :-) One of my greatest benefits I have received from the CG method is my flaky scalp issue. I would use T/Gel which I hated because of the smell and I'm sure it's chaulked full of harmful ingredients (I am a natural kind of girl) but I had tried every natural remedy possible with no relief. I then was using Shea Moisture detox & refresh scalp elixir. It worked and relieved to ditch my T/Gel. But then I was reading on here about clarifying so I bought the Mop Top clarifying rescue treatment. I don't remember why I decided to clarify but I did. Might have been because of the clever product placement in the store lol. My scalp is ultimately thankful for clarifying. I have ditched the T/gel and scalp elixir all together. Not only that, but my hair looks shiner. So far, no flakes, itching even if I sweat, and longer time between washes. I am so amazed at how well something as simple as clarifying has changed my scalp and hair. I am so so thankful for the information on here. I had looked high and low for a remedy for my scalp issues and never found one until now. Well there's my long hair story. I'm glad to be a part of the community!
