It's My Week-iversary! Loving CG

Well, I started on the 21st, so kinda a week. But regardless, I'm love this no-poo thing. I cannot believe how much better my hair is doing. I just wanted to thank everyone on the boards because I read so much and learned so much form all of your posts.

I started having a wee bit of trouble with oilies so I did a baking soda rinse followed by and ACV rinse and I think that took care of it.

And one more thing, if you're just starting out: don't give up!!

Thanks again! So glad I found this website!

    Congrats! The best part is, things will probably keep getting better. You're lucky it's working so well - mine took a while to adjust to CG even a little bit. Today's my month-iversary and my hair feels so much better. 8)
    Thick, mostly 2c with some 3a; fine texture, medium/high porosity, and a very strange curl & wave pattern.

    Started CG (properly) as of 6/31/2009.

    I'm going on mine too! It's funny I thought co-washing was such a big deal, but it's not! My hair is less greasy than it was, my hair is ADORING it, and all from a $.98 bottle of condish. :)

    I did pick up some low poo and used that cause I'm still using some products that have the A-Cone in it, but I prefer no-poo! Gooooo team no-poo!
