New 3a transitioning to CG

Hi everyone!  I have thick, coarse, medium porosity (I think) 3a-ish hair and am transitioning to CG.  I used to be quite active on these boards a looong time ago (early 2000's!!) and have returned because I realized my hair was getting limp and bleh probably due to silicones, and have decided to finally go CG.  I've been using AG Recoil sulfate-free shampoo, and Loma moisturizing treatment, which after doing some research, I realize has dimethicone in it!  I also use AG Recoil cream (long time HG for me) and Lush R&B moisturizer.

I still have a bit of the Loma conditioner left that I'm going to keep using until my new Shea Moisture JBCO conditioner arrives in the mail (hopefully about 2 weeks from now), and then will go modified CG - I like to diffuse my hair in the morning as I currently shampoo and style my hair every day.

Looking forward to getting to know you and learning more about CG and caring for my hair!
