newbee questions dry scalp suave coconut

i've been trying the cg method for about a week last time i shampooed was about 4 days ago (i missed the part about clarifying to get rid of the old cones)
anyway i've been having some problems. first i guess i should list what i've been useing

vo5 strawberrys and cream or suave as a co-wash

vo5 or suave (same) as a leave in (suggestions please)

2 quarter sized globs of aloe vera gell plus a couple drops of jojoba oil scrunched in before plopping

after releasing hair from the plop i scrunch in totaly twisted mouse

then diffuse, sometimes

my hair type is wavy 2a in the front and a tiney bit underneath then yes 2c in the middle and back.
so of course i suffer from flat top/puffy back.

scalp seams dry for some reason...it's usualy oily after 2 days. i've always had dandruff but considering i havnt used my selson blue it's not too bad, jojoba oil helps .i tried dabbing with acv...did nothing.
i just got dr. bronners shikaki lemongrass lime body/hair soap i'm planning to use this once a week i guess. since i don't know if i'm getting flakes from being dry or what. i used to think it was because of oil. i no longer know my hair....sigh

also i've been reading about proteins, i'm thinking of avoiding them which is hard. so i looked up the ingredients in the suave one by one and found
Cetrimonium chloride listed as a silicone? i found this "
Amodimethicone (and) Trideceth-12 (and) Cetrimonium Chloride mixture that is soluble in water in the bottle" here http://www.naturallycurly.com/curl-p...-care-products
under silicones

this was also listed in the Cationic surfactants
catagory

what does soluble in water in the bottle mean?
is it soluble when it exits the bottle?

i should mention i have no clue what i'm doing/reading/drenching my hair in.... in need of advice.
Today makes one week and one day of CG routine. I am keeping it very simple with products and have not had dryness. I washed my hair with Herbal Essences Degunkify shampoo the day before I started CG and then washed with California Baby shampoo the day I started CG. I have not shampooed since.

Don't forget if you do have to shampoo, make sure that you coat your hair with condish. first.

Modified CG since 9/3/08
New regime:
California Baby Tea tree & Lavender shampoo (sulphate free shamp)when needed, Suave Tropical coconut condish, honey rinse, Biosilk Rock hard Gelee, plop, and add more gel, diffuse for more curly look and fuller results. I have to work to make my hair curly. My hair loves honey! Plopping and pineapples rule!
