I finally feel ready to post in this thread!

Straightened, pre-CG
This is how I wore my hair for probably six or seven years. I'd blow it out with a hairdryer, then flat-iron the bangs.



Air dried, pre-CG
I'm not deliberately posting bad pictures for contrast; these are literally the only non-straightened pictures I have. This is probably the best my hair had ever looked back then.









Air dried, two months post-CG

This is today after being out and about all day. I'm still growing out bangs, so excuse the wonky bits in front.







I've come to realize I need way, way more protein for my wave pattern to get any stronger, so the differences here are mostly in softness (which you can't see) and shine (which, hopefully, you can). Instead of dry and strawlike, my hair is healthy and moisturized. I didn't know my hair could feel like this!

I now want to let my grays grow in. Is 29 too early to start. Would it be too contrasted since my hair is almost black? OK...end guano.

I'll try to take a new pic tomorrow to show the difference. I posted in the original thread but that was way over a year ago and I have much more curl now.

You'll have to decide that yourself. I let mine grow out several inches when I was 40 and decided that I wasn't ready yet. When I turned 47, I knew that it was time. I wanted to be completely natural by age 50.
2C wavy with some spirals. CG since April 07. Medium texture and porosity.
COs: Yes to Cucumbers
Stylers: Krystal Ecostyler, KCCC,

I've been modified CG for a little over a month now.

The first pic is my hair when I used to straighten it with a curling iron. The second is my first week of CG- my hair was wavier, but it was dry and producty-looking (I was still trying to figure out what products to use and was fully air drying). The third is around week 2 or 3 into CG- a bit less wave, but much softer and healthier hair. The last pic is just the other day- waves and softness!

It's so much fun to see these amazing transformations!

I've been CG for about six or seven weeks. My before is early CG when I was using a low-poo that was much too harsh for my hair--but it's pretty typical of how my hair looked most of the time after being blown out.

My afters are using soap bar and vinegar rinse.
