CG: is it really that great?

I don't really see anything positive being added to this thread. I see a large group of people ganging up on one person because they don't agree with what they've said. Seems a little like the pot calling the kettle black for everyone to jump on one person because they don't agree with what they've said... just my observation.

If everyone is entitled to believe what they do and to feel how they do about CG then it's just that. A million people don't need to jump in. Just like with the whole CG method, take what you will and leave the rest behind.

For me, I come here to see positive stuff. Not continued negativity.
3B with some 3a. Fell off but am now back on the CG bandwagon and looking for my HG products.
I'm sorry to have offended you, CurlyQTPie. I certainly didn't post to gang up on any one person, simply to vent my general feeling that non-CGers seem to be unacceptable on this board these days. This is the first post I've seen where others have expressed that feeling, and I simply agree.
I'm not offended just think it's not very productive. The majority of people posting were not posting "in general" they were posting to a specific person. That was just my observation.

I don't think anyone's ganging up. I'm sure Half means well & just wants to help -- I mean, haven't we all had that impulse to confiscate her brush from a misguided curly? But sometimes, the 'downloading of knowledge' comes across as evangelical zeal, even if it's not intended that way. It's something to take into account with this form of communication (BB's). I've seen folks take offense to laurabeth's post, when it was very clear all she was doing was providing a ton of info, & in her case, she is not CG & is very neutral in her approach. Tone can be a touchy thing. It helps to remember we're not teaching here, or correcting, just sharing info & supporting each other in our curlitude.

C'mon y'all.

This is HWHC style. She means no harm and likes to assist when she can.

There are various organic and sulfate free shampoos available. I concentrate more on the health of my scalp and am sure to DT or PT at least once a week.

If you are into organics you may want to check out They have a nice selection. ABBA has many "vegan" options as does Jonathan product - although I have never used his stuff.

I tried it several times and it left me very dull and limp after a while, even though it worked at first. Now I use mostly CG conditioners and styling products, but I do use VO5 kiwi lime poo. But since I'm planning on highlighting I may switch that to a poo that is more gentle like activate. ~~jax
