I am SO excited!! Please rejoice with me, CG friends!
I don't know how many of you are paying attention, but I've been posting here lately (I'm pretty much a brand spankin' newbie) and most of my posts have been asking questions about CG routine, products, etc. etc., and the other ones have been frustrations about my transition into no-'cone products.

But, drumroll please ... I have found a decent routine in just 2 days!!

This is what I did last night, and it worked wonderfully!

Herbal Essences Drama Clean 'poo to get out 'cones from old products I used.
Generic Brand (like Nexxus Humectress) co- didn't fully rinse it out.
Squeezed dripping water out of my hair.
Quarter-sized dollop of LA Looks Sports for whole head of hair, into soaking wet hair.
Quarter-sized dollop of Biotera Curl Creme.
Plopped for 20 minutes.
A little bit more LA Looks and Biotera.
Diffused to about 70% dry.
Clipped roots for some volume there.

I don't know if I'll ever have 100% frizz-free curlies, but it was pretty close!! My curls were very well-defined and no crunchies from the gel (which I was terribly afraid of)!!

I slept on it ... this morning I misted with water and put a tad bit of LA Looks and Biotera ... I looked damn good! :D

I welcome myself into CG living with a big bang and a smile!

That's brilliant, must be a record! :lol: Don't give up on the frizz free at this early stage though. If you're getting great results already, you might find the frizz lessens further on in your journey, or you might stumble across a product that eliminates more frizz for you.

I can't wait to get up tomorrow and shower to see if I can have a repeat great hair day!!

I don't get paid until next week, but when I do ... I'm going to try Curl Keeper to see if that helps cut down even more on my frizz!

I brought all of my random products to work today, to see if any of my lady coworkers wanted them (one girl has curly hair, too) and they looked at me kind of funny when I told them I was transitioning to a new hair routine ... rather than explain no 'cones and CG stuff, I just said I'm trying to go with products that are more natural ingredients 'cause it's better for my hair ...

and then for lunch I went to the natural foods store and got a fruit and yogurt smoothie ...

everyone was calling me a hippie today! :)

Thanks for the support ... you girls are so awesome!
