My 14 year old has oily scalp and curly hair. I had her on some high powered shampoo to try to fix the oily. Last week my girls and I started CG/mod-CG. Due to her oily scalp I had her use a L'Oreal sulfate-free shampoo instead of co-washing, and then Tresemme Naturals conditioner. I noticed a difference immediately for her. She has gone 3 days between washings and still her roots are not greasy. She is having the best results of the three of us. She pretty much just runs her fingers through her hair in the morning and she is good. I am most happy about the lack of oiliness and hope that helps her forehead clear up soon too.

A year and a half ago I never would have believed my hair oily hair would wash up well with just water. At any rate - I'm glad it's working and I bet it will make a difference with her forehead skin, too.
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).

Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
