I know this probably isn't the answer that that you're looking for, but you will need to base this on how your hair feels. Some people alternate co-washing with water washing, others rotate in a low-poo. There are people who will either cleanse or water wash almost every day. Then there are people don't have to re-wet their hair for several days. CG is not a one size fits all method of caring for your curls. I know it can seem overwhelming at first. I suggest keeping a hair journal to track what you're using and how your hair responds.

Thank you for the advice i will start a journal about how my hair feels. The only thing that gets me is that i walk 4 miles a day in the morning and my hair is frizzy and puffy after. Thanks

Would you be cleansing or conditioning your hair before or after the walk?

Look up the spritz and condish method. That would probably help with the frizz after your walk

Hair: 2a or 3a (not sure), very porous and fine as frog hair
Day 1: Cowash and condition with AO GPB, ACV Rinse,
Co-Kra gel (this stuff is fantastic)

Day 2: KCKT, KCCC, plop, KCCC, plop again, air dry
Day 3: Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Coil Jam
Day 4: IAGirl's PT, KBB DT, FSG

Co-Kra gel is my own concoction of okra boiled in coconut milk. It is a cross between FSG and KCCC and leaves my hair very soft and shiny
Thanks for this -- I've been really confused about exactly how I'm supposed to be approaching this. Co-washing vs. the baking soda/vinegar method, etc.

Weirdly, I noticed that when I water-washed, for some reason my hair got really weighed-down and went almost straight.

What I'm trying right now is putting a 2nd day "curl refresher" in a misting bottle with a hefty amount of water and then spritzing my hair lightly before I go to bed, followed by a curl activator. I tried that last night and it worked great -- probably the best my hair has looked in the week and a half I've been trying this.

I normally use cleansing conditioners instead of regular conditioners to co-wash and I cleanse almost every day because I do 1-2+ hours of martial arts almost daily. That's why the hair journal is so helpful- there's going to be trial and error involved in finding your perfect routine.

I would walk first. I conditioned this morning and i blotted with a towel then added FOTE and Lalooks gel. My hair is curly which is good. But i did start the journal. I also noticed that my hair looks good but feels like i have a lot of product in it. I am going to pineapple tonight so i don't have to wet or water wash tomorrow. I'll let you know how it comes out.. Thanks
