This was a great read! I started the CG method in February after a curly friend insisted that I had wavy hair and to stop torturing myself by straightening it. So, the next time I had my haircut I mentioned it to my stylist and she said "You have tons of curl/wave. Didn't you know that?"
Apparently, I didn't. My hair was basically straight for the first 15 years of my life. After puberty, it changed a bit, but I wore it long and pulled back. It was until I had kids that my hair really took on a new texture. So, I have spent the last 6 years trying to figure out what to do with my hair.
My hair was healthy before, but I LOVE it now. It is even healthier and now that I have stopped trying to fight it, it feels more like "me".
I think we wavies have the best of both worlds!
