New to the CG ways, help needed!

Hi Everyone!
I am new to the world of curly hair. Like many, I have fought my hair for years, oblivious to the fact that wavy and curly hair needs different treatment than straight hair.

I recently received the CG Handbook and am in love! I have started the routine suggested for wavy hair, and it has done wonders already.

Only one problem: First day hair looks fabulous, but my 2nd day hair feels oily and limp at the roots, and feels dry and coarse along the length. I have always had an oily scalp and fought it by washing my hair every day, sometimes able to stretch to every other day with it pinned and pulled back in a ponytail.

Are there any suggestions on getting the mythical great 2nd day hair I have been hearing about?!

Any suggestions would be welcome!


P.S I am also seeking a good curly hair stylist in the Metro-Detroit area, that won't break the bank. Recommendations welcome!
Welcome, JennaBug! There is often a transition period as your hair adjusts to the new routine. Many of us have modified the CG routine to better suit our individual needs. I need to low-poo 2-3 times a week. Co-washing alone just didn't work well for me. Give your hair some time to adjust, then make tweaks if needed. You'll find lots of help and support on these boards.
