I have been CG for three months now, here's what I found...

I found out that I can not use ANY oils in my styling routine. I initially used either sweet almond oil, argon oil, or coconut oil over my leave-in conditioner. But now find that I break out on my forehead and my hair dirties too quickly.

I found that I need to no-poo at least twice weekly, and more recently, even thrice weekly. Otherwise my hair dirties too quickly and/or feels producty.

I found that keeping it simple works even better than using so many products. Initially I used leave-in, an oil, and a styling gel or cream. Now I don’t even use leave-in (but do use a good rinse-ou conditioner – Herbal Essences coconut moisture), cannot use oils, and just use two products – either [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Curly-Hair-Solutions-Curl-Keeper-p-28.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=curly-hair-solutions-curl-keeper]curl keeper[/buylink] and batia and aleeza botanical gel, or a/c recoil and batia and aleeza botanical gel, or mixed chicks and [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Curly-Hair-Solutions-Curl-Keeper-p-28.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=curly-hair-solutions-curl-keeper]curl keeper[/buylink] or a/c recoil.

Those are my findings.

I’m wondering if the scalp produces more sebum as time passes and you continue on the CG routine, because like I said, I feel as though I am producing a lot more natural oil. As a result, my routine is simpler.
