    I am also about a month and a half CG, but my curls don't look anywhere near as nice as yours!!!! It is frustrating me actually cause you can see the curls start to form, and then they lose the curl because of heat damage, but then they curl again when I wore it curly (curls were a summer thing). I wish they would just grow and be fully the way they are supposed to. Or at least if the curl would maintain its direction evenly throughout the strand/head. Sigh..

    I've been using the co-wash method for just about a week and find my hair is becoming greasy with not shampooing. Plus, although it is defining my curls, I'm not getting great body or great 2nd day hair.

    Any tips??

    My hair also was greasy when i started the CG method, then it got better, about the body i dunno, im still learning, and also dont know how to 2nd day my hair, some use a spray bottle wiht water and conditioner and spray it and then scrunch it again, i think it takes practice, post your doubts on the general forum, its more active than this one, and theres more experience curlies! Sorry i cant be of much help!

    You might try a protein treatment if you have fine hair (coarse hair doesn't usually like protein but you can try it) or maybe an ACV rinse like essyvalo. Alternately, you could mix some lemon juice into your cowash condish.
