Has anyone had success doing CG not using styling products?

I know most people use gel and styling cremes. I was using them, but in the winter they seem to weigh hair down too much and would like to try not using anything.
I don't use leave-ins either for same reason.
Just wondered if anyone had success without products and were happy with results.

somewhere between 2c/3a, I think

no longer on CG routine

s/c daily
deep oil treatments at least twice a week: olive oil or coconut oil once, and Ojon R.T. once

    I don't use any gels or creams, and my curls are just as defined and frizz-free, with or without styling products.

    I just can never get second-day hair.:sad8:

    Thanks CurlyBrunetteGirl. I hope that I'll get the same definition and be frizz-free too. I am going to give it a whirl. I have been using gel to tame flyaways but I am just going to try going without anything (and learn to like the wispies)
    I never get secondday either, I CO wash everyday.

    yeah, same for me. I've been no-poo now for only a week, and I can't find a good gel where I am, so i'm using nothing, and my hair is way better than I thought it would be. Yes, i have a few wispies, but thats what curly hair does, so I can't get angry at them!

    Thanks greenkiwi - I am getting acustomed to the wispies. On me, I like them better I think than the gelled down look. My hair is fine and easily weighed down. Sounds like you are having good results on no-poo. It's done wonders for me. I just quit and went back to regular shampoo and conditioner for a week. Believe me, it wasn't long to get back to CO washes. I do shampoo (CWC) twice a week, otherwise I get weighed down from too much conditioner.

    Ditto. My hair goes flat when I sleep on it - putting more product on just makes it gunky & not curly at all!
    Pretty much a 2c, but a bit flatter on top than I'd like!!
