Hello everyone! Here is an update:ImageUploadedByCurlTalk1377380905.946664.jpg

Today I clarified and put a lot of conditioner as leave in and after I used HE mousse. I prefer the softness and smell of the mousse vs the gel

I've only been here a few days, but was doing a modified CG (sulfate free shampoo, no shampoo washing often, plopping) and didn't know it for the last few months! Here are some pics:

When I first stopped flatironing, in the winter:

A month or so ago, after switching to Sulfate free shampoo and using it a lot less:

I spent lunchtime today drooling at everyone's after photos and am resolved to give CG (or at least mod CG a go!). I've been low-pooing for about 4 months and whilst it's made a difference I know my hair can be better.

Here's some pics of my journey up to this point...

This is me back in '95 - my hair was kinda wavy so Mama figured a perm would help (?!)

Pre-CG straight.jpg
More recent, salon straight but prone to frizz and an itchy/flaky scalp

Day 0 back.jpg
Today - day zero. I've ordered some CG friendly goodies and given myself a nourishing coconut oil treatment. Hair is looking shinier and is much softer with less frizz. Can't wait to see how much better is can get!
2c, fine, normal porosity, high density
Mod CG: Oct 13
Pre-poo/DT: Coconut/EVOO
Low-poo - L'oreal Colour Care & Moisture Shampoo (once a week)
Cowash - Timotei Pure;
Leave in - Aussie Miracle Colour Insurance;
Styling: Aveda Be Curly Prep; Umberto Giannini Scrunching Curl Jelly
Battling frizzies!
Thats a lot of wave for day 0!!

Just love looking at all these pics,hoping to get the same results sometime soon, been working at it for 3 weeks now. Getting my first Deva cut tomorrow. Very excited!
2C * Normal Porosity * Medium Density * Chin Length

Still playing with products ( using mostly Deva right now)

Working on finding my inner curl.
So I'm one month in to mod CG and still experimenting with products. However I've definitely noticed a difference in my hair - more volume at the roots, more curl definition, hair is softer and I'm having more good days than bad. Frizz is still a problem BUT it's definitely improved.

Was going through old hair photos today and realized how much my hair has changed over the past 2 years of going CG. The long hair one is from 2 years ago. The shorter hair one was taken in the past week.
