CG not for me??

Ever since I started the CG method my curls have gotten less defined and really limp as well as frizzy. I'm thinking I should switch back to using shampoo and conditioner. Is this okay?

    When you say "CG" are you actually referring to conditioner only cleansing? They are really 2 separate things. COC can be a part of CG but it does not have to be.

    I am CG all the way (no sulfates and no silicones-even water soluble ones) but I cannot conditioner only cleanse. I use a lowpoo (a shampoo with, again, no sulfates and silicones) every other day.

    You can, then, absolutely use a sulfate and silicone free shampoo and conditioner and still be CG.
