All is not lost! Don't give up

Everyone's curl journey is a serious process! I've been CG now for almost a year and a half, and FINALLY I am seeing results! I never used sulfates pre CG, but I did spend a good amount in the outdoors, with my hair sometimes, and sometimes not covered. I never DC, I never used products. Since my journey, I found glycerins are bad for me. Interestingly, it even bothers me as a rinse out. I have only found success with a teen bit of it in shampoo. So much stuff on this site is grouped around easterners, mid-westerners and southerners. If you have hard water, interesting climate factors (true story: 72F the other day, 20% relativity humidity and 30 dew--how are you supposed to choose products with that crazy mixture!?) But I wanted to provide hope for those of you who haven't seen great results yet--don't give up. My journey took over a year, but look, no frizz!
