    That's what I'm trying to figure out. But from what I've read, you can use shampoo with sulfates & silicones are ok. But as far as styling, no info. Which is also what in trying to figure out.

    It's basically a form of conditioner-only styling. You shampoo the scalp only, then use conditioner (any conditioner; the TC method doesn't avoid cones) to define each curl, one by one. So, you put loads of condish in your hair, then run your fingers from the root to the tip of each curl unit (i.e. each clump).

    Here's a video example of the method by the creator, Terri LaFlesh: Defining Tighter Curls - YouTube

    HTH! :)

    Oh, and I have done conditioner-only styling, but I'm way too lazy to go curl by curl, the way Terri does. I just rake condish through, trying to get it all over, and then scrunch a bit. It works okay for me, depending on the weather.
