I hope I'm doing this correctly, I'm new and have no clue lol.

Hey curlies, I just started the cg method and would love some help with ingredients. I can't find LA Looks gel anywhere (I'm in Canada) so I thought I could try this wal*mart brand gel. Not sure if it's compatible with the cg method so any feedback would be appreciated!

If this isn't ok to use, is aloe vera ok?

    It looks CG. I don't see any silicones or sulfates. A lot of people on these boards use aloe vera. I personally have never tried it.

    Teri Laflesh's book "Curly Like Me" sits on my desk and everytime I get frustrated and an impulse tells me to shave my head, I look at it in hopes that one day my hair will graze the top of my butt.
