I've had a quick look at your succesful CG regime so far. Wondered how often you washed/co-washed. Have just started the journey, think I'm 4b but have dry, crispy and frizzy hair in the morning and have to wash or spritz to revive my curls. Any tips as I don't really want a soaked? (using Aubrey Honeysuckle Rose cond and their B5 gel). Your hair looks fab by the way...

Thank you do very much for the compliment! One tip could be not using gel in the length of your hair. I usually only apply gel to my egress to lay them down but conditioner only on the length of my hair. Same as you, I did spritz my hair down every morning with either water or Jane Carter Revitalizing Leave in Conditioner. Sometimes, I use both. I spray the water first let it soak into my hair for about 5-8 min then shake it out never touching my hair then do the same with the Jane Carter.

Please check out my videos in YouTub. My my username is Tots5678 to check out my refining and see how I do my hair!

Thanks again for the compliment & checking out my journey!

Wow, the difference is amazing! I thought your hair was beautiful pre-CG, but by week 7, (even though I hate when people do this to me) I wanted to reach through the screen and touch your hair.
I just read the entire thread-- thank you for posting you progress! Your hair is beautiful and your curls look amazing after sticking to CG faithfully. It is very encouraging!
I am starting my 3rd week of CG but yesterday I tried combing my ends in the hopes of keeping my individual coils separate and ended up with a frizzy fro, like I started with. Hopefully it won't take long for my strands to start clumping back together.

You can google tightly curly method by Terri LaFlesche (hope I spelled that right) and she has video on her website to show this method. Again, I didn't do it every time because it took so long but every now an them and it helped with definition and smoothed out the frizz.
Very nice!

No heat challenges are so helpful to the over all health of your hair! That's my opinion and experience anyway. Lol!
