What does successful CG hair feel like?

I know it varies depending on texture, curl, product, etc., but to YOU, what does well done CG hair feel like to the touch? Is it soft, hold shape, does it leave a slight 'conditionery' feeling in your hand? Is it slick when dry? Does CG hair feel heavier or lighter than it did 'before' you CG?

    it doesnt feel dry and frizzy and it's super soft. You just kinda know then what your hair was before.

    I wouldn't describe it as soft, just normal... If my hair is super soft, it's also quite frizzy.
    It holds its shape and curl clumps, pretty much, though the curl clumps change from day to day.
    It is not squeaky clean and dry, it's silky and a little slick.
    It feels supple, perhaps leaving a very slight oily feeling on your hand, similar to stroking healthy skin.
    It feels heavier than pre CG.

    2c/M/ii, healthy, random kinks, waist length, platinum black!
    Wash routine: sometimes coconut oil treatment, CO wash with Suave, rinse, GVP Hair Reconstructor, rinse, LI Suave, plop, air-dry :happy2:
    Non-wash days: Smooth hair with water and Suave, sometimes olive oil to seal
    Bad for me: Phenoxyethanol irritates scalp, Distearyldimonium Chloride & Quaternium-87 straighten hair
    Holy Grail Conditioners, Suave Naturals with Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine!
