Hey Friends!

So, I'm wanting to start the CG method. I have a combo of 2C/3A hair and I just want to make sure I have this right.

So, In order to start- I need to clarify with a sulfate shampoo and then get rid of my styling products with silicones in them. Then, I can either use a no-poo or a Co-Wash conditioner for my scalp.

Do I need another conditioner for the length of my hair? Do people recommend leave-ins or rinse out conditioners? And then I also need a good gel and deep conditioner?

Also, is it recommended to get a haircut first to clean things up before starting, as well?
