Want to start CG: Type 3c hair

CurlyMomof3CurlyMomof3 Posts: 69Registered Users
I am cutting off my relaxed ends on July 1. Once I am "officially" curly again, I want to try the CG method.

What conditioners do you recommend for (1) Co-Washing and (2) as the followup conditioner?

My hair type is 3c and I do like a bit of weight on my curls, if that makes sense. Thanks!
3b curly with some 3c thrown in at the crown. Fine, high porosity, dense curls styled in a curly bob,

Last Japanese TR in March 2008. BC in July 2010 and now 100% natural. :afro:

CG since September 2010.

Currently co-washing with Suave Naturals or V05 Moisture milks, conditioning with Triple Condition, and styling with LALSG. That's it!

    Hey CurlyMomof3, I'm a curly mom of 4 :angel5:!! I am also a 3c and just trimmed off the rest of my relaxed ends in April~this is the first time I have been natural since I was a kid.
    I have been using GF Triple Nutrition as a co-wash (I don't really like it tho, it doesn't have enough slip for me and I need to use gobs of it to get thru my hair), it's almost gone and then I'm gonna try Tresemme Naturals conditioner as my co-wash (I've read lots of good stuff about it on this site and it's cheap!). For my leave in, I do love GVP Conditioning Balm from Sally's ($6 for 16oz)...it's really thick and I only need a little, even with all my giant head of hair, lol!
    Hope that helps!!
    3c fine and frizzy
