Hi! I'm new to the forum and to the CG method.

I'm on day 4 with 3 co washes (went one day second day hair) anyway, first day was GREAT! Then it seems to be getting worse and worse. I know it's only been a few times, but my hair is full of flyways. No frizz, but flat, and extremely soft. Love the soft, but not the flat!!! My hair had way more curl before going CG! I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong?
I would categorize my hair as curly / wavy. Would say its fine. But not ultra fine.
Usually not dry.
So far I am using Suave Naturals coconut, and same to rinse out. I finger and comb detangle in shower, then scrunch in LA Looks sport, and plop.
Is the plop possibly causing the fly aways?
I don't know, I don't want to give up, but feeling

Thanks for any help!!
In order for people to help you, it's best to know your properties. Here's a link to help Curly Hair Basics | Live Curly Live Free It's the best way to choose ingredients/products. Other important factors are weather (dewpoint) and technique.

The ebook that's available there would be a good investment--all of the information in one place. It's really good to read and learn.

Ok, will try to do that, but for now is there anyone who is willing to help? Is this normal?
Should I switch product?

Thank you.
Many people with fine hair cannot co-wash exclusively and find that they need to rotate in a sulfate-free shampoo. It sounds like you might be overconditioned.
