New "Modified CG" Forum?

Like Tree5Likes

Definitely interested. It would be great to be able to compare methods and what worked/didn't work with CG for some people.
Agreed...I think wavies are probably the most modified CG-ers, but I can see others with fine hair or weaker patterns maybe being modified as well.

2b-3a Fii, porous and low elasticity

Currently using a variety of products, and looking for that magic combo

Hair bio:

I'm interested! CG alone doesn't work for my super fine hair.
FIA: 2b-c/f/i, normal porosity/elasticity I think?

Current favs:
lo-poo: Giovanni
Co-Wash: V05 Kiwi Lime
RO: CJ Beauticurls,
LI: Ouidad Botanical Boost
PT/DT: Emergencee, Biolage Condish Balm
Stylers: LALSG, Aussome Volume Gel
I would definitely be happy if they added a modified CG board! I'm not sure the CG method works all that well with my hair so I'd love to learn how to become a modified CG.
mod CG since March 2012
fine texture
normal porosity
normal elasticity
high density

& still trying to figure the rest out
+1. I low-poo regularly. cleansing conditioners seem to build up on my hair, rather than cleansing it.
hair type: 2B/3A
low poo: Elucence moisture; Elucence clarifying (after swimming)
condish: CJ smoothing; CJ argan; CJ repair me; CJ curl rehab
winter/spring styling: CJ Beauticurls leave-in + Curly Kinks coil jam + Ouidad mongongo oil; or CJ leave-in + SpiralSolutions CEJ & FHG
summer/fall styling: CJ CCCC lite + CIAB + Curl Queen pw = 3ahair
Awesome idea!!!

what else do you need/want to know? Blame all spelling mistakes on me, my fat fingers or autocorrect.

I would love to have a mod CG forum! My hair gets weighed down and oily with the no poo that I have used. I would love to have a place to compare and get more ideas!
Definitely interested. I've been CG-ish (CG, modified CG, & back to CG) for the past two years, but I feel like something is lacking &/or that my hair just doesn't look as good as it could (it has to get better than this, right?) & I'm wondering if a lo-poo & less rigidity about product regimens could help.

+1 for a mod CG forum! Have been tossing around the idea lately about doing mod CG during the high dews months since I just am not finding a good product combo for the summer months.
Trying CG method again after straightening the past 5 years. Hoping to get my curls back again!
2B Color treated
A modified CG board would be excellent!

Being a 2a with lots of fine/medium textured hair, the total CG method just doesn't work for me. It gets, flat, greasy, limp looking.

I think the CG method is a great starting point and with lots of trial and error we find what works for us and our hair.

I've had some weird hair days since I stopped using cones and sulfate shampoo but it is a work in progress!
A reminder for people... Low poo is CG. Mod CG would be using occasional or regular sulfates and non water soluble cones.

2c/3a, M, ii, porous, good elasticity, APL, silvery dark brown.
Love coconut oil, olive oil, and Everyday Shea!

No longer CG - I use cones & shampoo every 2 - 3 days

Currently trying: Aveda Shampure Shampoo & Conditioner, Aveda Be Curly Shampoo & Conditioner, Suave Captivating Curls Mousse, Condition 3 in 1 Mousse
That does sound helpful...count me in.

I am mostly cg these days..but on occasion I will use Aussie Moist which has cones...I got a deep conditioner with lots of good stuff but mineral oil I think. And if my hair feels coated I won't hesitate to use shampoo...I try not to have to often...but I'll use whatever makes it look good.

Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.
Hi there.
