Is there a Link to this I just cant find

This is all confusing, I get the co-wash I have tried the bs/acv yesterday.
How do you know if you need more than 1 cond. at a time, I see some use many at once. One to clean one to rinse out I guess.
some use protein, clarify, leave in, how do I know if I need all these or when to use or when to use in a combo.
Thanks so much

    The first thing you should do (if you haven't already) is determine your hair properties (texture, porosity, etc- curl pattern really has nothing to do with products). There are some general guidelines once you know your properties, but ultimately there's still a good element of trial and error involved.

    In general, hair that is finer in texture and/or higher in porosity does well with protein. If your hair feels dry, add more moisture. I'm one of the people who uses 2 different conditioners when I co-wash because my scalp gets oily and sweaty so I need something very light for my roots. But the length of my hair still needs additional moisture, so I use a richer conditioner as my RO. Sometimes people with finer textured hair also find that they cannot co-was exclusively, so they rotate in a low-poo or even a gentle sulfate shampoo as needed. CG is less about following a strict set of rules than it is about learning how to make your hair look and feel its best. I know how overwhelming all of the information can be at first, but eventually it will feel like second nature.
