I just need a simple "how to start CG" i have 2b/2c hair. I got my hair trimmed today and I am ready to get more natural curl!

I need a how to begin CG, co-washing/ no-pooing whichever it is and anything to help me be as natural as possible.

Also my stylist washed my hair with a sulfate poo and no silicones but then put products in my hair...does that ruin my start?

    It depends what was in those products. Because most salons tend to use products with non-water soluble cones (products ending -cone or -xane), you'll probably need a final clarifying rinse if you want to be CG.

    There are great threads on NC about the CG method, so I won't go into that.

    Its simple just skip using your shampoo instead rinse your hair with water then comb the conditioner through as usual....you don't have to follow the rules strictly if it doesn't work for your hair.
