I'm About To Crack.

All Right. I started CG kind of in april. But not really because I use cones, straightened, and just bleh.
I've been actual cg for aout 2 weeks now and my hair just feels greasy when I wake up and i won't have put anything in it and it will have dried before I went to bed! I use suave coconut conditioner as condish, co wash, and elave in. I use oil and exfoliate onces a week but im stopping oil. What can I do ? I used a product wiht silicone in it tonight and i used shampoo. Help!
Probably no oil is good if it's too greasy, and vinegar rinse may help also.

Expecting it to look awesome after sleeping on it, now that is another matter.
Is it normal to be so oily though? Is this jsut a phase?

3b thick and coarse

VO5 champagne kiss, suave coconut, inecto coconut oil moisturizing condish

It seems to be for most people when they go full-on CG, there's a phase where your hair just looks terrible and it's very tempting to just give up. Try not to. It's just a phase. After you get through it, and it can last a few weeks, your hair will thank you.

If you've been CG for 2 weeks, then decrease the cowashing to once or twice a week and water wash instead. Really scrub/massage your scalp and rinse well. Then condition the length to detangle and moisturize. If you are using any styling products, check them for 'cones or 'xanes. Those will buildup and need a sulfate shampoo to remove. It can take 4 - 6 weeks for your hair and scalp to adjust to going shampooless, so give it a bit more time. Try an apple cider vinegar rinse or add a couple tablespoons of brown sugar to your conditioner to make a bit of a scrub for your scalp. (If you are a wavy, then a sulfate-free shampoo once or twice a week might be necessary.) It should get better in time.

I'm like a 2c. I can't find a non sulfate shampoo. They aer to expensive for me!
Did you look into Burts Bees shampoo? I *think* it's CG and didn't seem all that expensive compared to other brands I've looked into.

I'm going to look up the ingredient list now.

Cream of Nature Shampoo from Sally's is totally cheap. Last time I was there it was like $8 for this mega monster bottle. I've never used it though so no comment on that part.

The Burts Bees that I've tried was $8 for a normal size shampoo bottle, but the shampoo was crap. Well, for me it was. It was the Raspberry Brazil Nut one and it just left my hair feeling coated and strange. It was just ick.
Well, Kitara beat me to it. We posted within a minute of each other.
Creme of Nature isn't too bad in price. Where I live, it's still sulfate free but I've heard it could be discontinued.
You can also try the swap board for cheaper buys.
