Hello Curlies!! :wave:

My name is Allie, and I just joined NC a few months ago. Haven't done an intro post yet, so here I am!

I've been thinking about doing the CG method, but it's tricky finding all the right products. I have 2c/3a type hair, which is very very fine and low density. I have higher porosity too, so it can be a headache finding the right products!

Anyway, just wanted to pop by and say hello! If anyone has any tips about going from shampooing to the CG method, and recommendations for products, I'd love to hear them! See you around! <3

    Hello!

    As for starting with products, I will suggest that low pooing might work better for you than straight co-washing, since your hair is fine. Sometimes fine hair gets weighed down with co-washing.

    If your hair is high porosity, you might want to start by looking for products that have a lot of protein. High-porosity hair generally likes protein.

    Nice to have you here!
