Funny you should ask this on the day that I went back to my OLD routine before coming back to this site and trying CG again. My hair lost a lot of its curl and bounce with CG and modified CG. My hair was too overconditioned. And I noticed that it's the longest I've gone without getting a hair compliment.

So I washed with shampoo, conditioned, and then rinsed all of the conditioner out and didn't apply a leave in. I just put B&A gel in my hair, and I got two compliments about how great my hair looked even with all of the violent winds outside. It really did look good. Makes me wonder if I should quit using a leave-in.
