Quick question

No idea if I'm posting this in the right place or not.

I want to start the curly girl method asap, but before I do, do I need to do one last wash with my regular shampoo (which has sulfates)? I've seen a couple of things that said you're supposed to do this before starting the CG method to get rid of any lingering silicones.

Just wondering. Thanks guys :)

    Yes, before starting the Curly Girl (CG) method, you need to do one last clarifying wash with a silicone free sulfate shampoo. Scan the ingredients on yours for ones that end in -cone, -conol, and -xane. Those suffixes indicate that the ingredient is a silicone. If yours has them, you'll want to pick up a silicone free one next time you're at the store. Suave Naturals Clarifying, Johnson's Baby shampoo, and Herbal Essences Tea-lightfully Clean are a few options that fit the bill.
