I suspect part of the misconception came from that because this section is about "trying" CG then it is mostly people who are new to the method who post here and maybe most of them have looser curls. I admit this may be the 1st or 2nd time I have looked at this section because I have been CG for years. People may not realize veteran CG'ers probably dont post as much here because they are not trying they're doing. There are plenty of tightly coiled ladies who follow this method. It keeps my hair better hydrated.
