I'm going to start CG tomorrow. Found a few conditioners and products today. Just wondering what everyone did during the "yucky phase" while your hair was adjusting? any hints or advice? I don't wanna walk around looking too terrible...I'm guessing my hair will be up in a clip a lot for a bit.
Just starting CG (04/18/13)
2C/3A hair, medium texture, normal porosity (I think!)
Trying out: Suave Naturals wild strawberry (co-wash) Garnier Fructis Pure and Clean fortifying conditioner, Redken crystal curls 6, Live Clean Argan Oil Treatment, Pantene curl shaping gel
Thinking of trying: Live Clean Argan oil conditioner or Live Clean Bali Oil conditioner....who recommends them?

    Good luck! I really didn't have much of a "yucky phase." It's really different for everyone. My biggest issue was learning that a little product goes a long way in my fine hair. I tend to be a little heavy handed and that often left me a little limp, over-conditioned and/or producty. Messy buns or quick up-dos cover a multitude of sins!

    Keep us posted on your progress!
    3B, fine, normal to low porosity
    Modified CG since June 2010
    HGs: FSG, anything with glycerin, Tresemme Naturals conditioner, Curls Like Us cloths, satin pillowcases.
