I am new here as well, though I have been lurking off and on for a few weeks...
I have been experimenting with my wavy hair for the last 8 years or so, but I usually straightened it - until now! It's been about 2 weeks since I've used my straightening iron on all of my hair.
I'm starting to get a little discouraged with CG already since I'm trying to go completely no-cone and no-sulfate. A lot of my HG products from before (Frizz Ease Dream Curls, for example) are probably horrible for my hair, but gave me some very nice curls. But I'm not a quitter and I'm not going to give up on CG anytime soon!
About me: I'm 26, originally from Canada but currently living in Southern California, and recently engaged.
This forum has been amazing, and I made my first purchase from CurtMart today (CurlsLikeUs towel)! Yay!
