I second what Curlypearl said. I've been modified CG for well over a year now (exactly how modified varies). When I went for my last Deva cut, the stylist raved about how healthy and moisturized my hair was- and that was before I explained that I use occasional silicones and sulfates, so it wasn't like she was saying that my hair was in good condition considering I was using non-CG products, she was saying that my hair was in great shape, period. I've long believed that it isn't the products that accounts for the dramatic changes some people see with CG- it's the awareness and the overall gentle technique that make the biggest difference. If it was all about product, then there wouldn't be so many non-CG people with gorgeous curls, and let's face it, there are plenty of them out there.
