I always thought my hair looked like crap, and today I took this pic and I was like O.O does my hair really look like that?! It's not as bad as I thought! My mom looks at me like -___- "I've been telling you that for how long now...?" Well in my defense, I could never see myself from that angle :-[

I had a hard time dealing with my hair too. I am wearing it naturally for 3 years and i get so much compliment. It takes time to find the right products, but after it is easy to handle

Starting Day (one week after starting product/hair detox) is first photo, the next two are today (first plop/Pixiecurl attempt). I need a haircut badly, but it's already cut way back on the frizz.

I've been on this site for a long time and I feel like it's helped me pin down a routine for my 2b/2c hair. Like, there's so much good advice here on the forums. Being wavy is the best! When I first got here, I really wanted curly hair. But, now I like my own wave pattern pretty well. Last week I dyed it from a really light brown to dark brown. The first picture is from a year ago, the last two are from this week. All of them were from after going sulfate free.

I think what worked for me as far a figuring out a routine was being pretty strictly CG for two or so years, then slowly relaxing on the areas that weren't that important to getting a good result. Like, at this point I've introduced low poos, I scrunch with a terry cloth towel sometimes, I use a silicone product regularly (gasp!), and I occasionally heat style. But for at least the first year I was as CG as can be, and it worked pretty well that way too. I just like trying different methods.

3 month CG. my 3rd day hair just today. I am still trying to figure out the right product etc. recently started to use wet microfiber cloth to plop my hair for 2nd/3rd day hair after reading an article on this forum. I just wet my hair use a palm of water, finger comb the water in a little bit, applied a little leave in, Tresemme flawless curl mousse, plopped for 10 minutes, diffused for another 10 minutes. then i let is dry naturally, scrunch... not too bad.

what do you all do for day2/3 hair?

Rainboe, your hair looks similar to mine... but gorgeous! Wow! I love the root volume and flip thing you've got going on. You're definitely giving me hope for the CG method, which I just got back to after a two year break.

My hair isn't naturally super voluminous, so I usually dry it with a middle part, then when it's dry I take some of it and flip it over to make a side part. That way it's kind of going against the way that I dried it, so it gives me a little volume. Also, pineappling gives me a bit of hight too. Then, the poofy thing in front is just because I have shorter bangs so they stick up a bit.

Rainboe, my hair actually *didn't* do that until I switched to Chagrin Valley shampoo bars for my minimal washing. I think the chemicals in store-bought shampoos, even the "good" ones, were weighing it down a lot. I still have the opposite problem, though - my roots/top layers are curly, my ends on the bottom layers like to go limp and almost straight. I'm hoping my haircut on Saturday will fix that - I found my stylist through this forum!

Someday my hair will be long enough to pineapple... Sigh!

I already posted pictures in the before and after cg-thread, but since I'm a "2", this is a good place to post them as well. The pictures are taken this week, after 3 weeks cg, and I've noticed a big change in my hair already! I hope my hair will improve as time goes by and after I learned a lot more!
