2a crown/2b for the rest - Starting CG with a question

erinoirerinoir Posts: 25Registered Users
Hello! I've been browsing the forums and am starting the CG method tomorrow. Should I do a cleansing baking powder or lemon juice rinse in the morning to get out any 'cones in my hair?

I'm new to curly-ness. My hair completely changed after my pregnancy with my son.

Here is day 0, following the styling advice in the CG book:

    Hello :hello2:,

    You have really pretty hair!! I would probably use a sulfate shampoo to get rid of any cones. I think you can use any shampoo that has sulfates in it. I'm not sure if baking powder or lemon juice take out cones....

    What other products are you going to use?
    Hair Type - wavy/curly, fine texture, thin/medium density

    Thanks for the quick reply and the compliment! I bought some Suave Naturals Coconut yesterday. As for the rest, I will need to use what I have on hand. For leave-in, I have Aussie 3-minute Miracle. For styling, I have Aussie Catch the Wave Mousse & Leave-In Conditioner, Clear Ice Protein Gel, and Aussie Shine Enhancing Gel - Sun-Touched Shine.

    I didn't shampoo this morning as I hadn't seen the reply yet. I did use lemon juice in the Suave Naturals conditioner.

    I agree. I'd start out with a sulfate shampoo with no cones. I don't think baking soda removes cones, and I doubt it would remove them efficiently.
    I love your long hair with its loose pretty waves. It looks to me like you may have fine hair??? If you do have fine hair, it would probably benefit from protein treatments. Sally beauty has a few reasonably priced ones.
    Good luck with your cg hair.
