After over a year of coming here and trying to figure out the whole CG thing I finally went out last night and got the Curly Girl book! I read the whole thing already. Now I feel just silly for now spending the $10 on the book in the first place. Everyone here is so nice and helpful about everything, but we still tend to float secondhand "what-works-for-us" information around.
After all the reading I've been doing on this website, I ordered the book as well, should have it any day! I'm so eager for all the tips and tricks when it comes to curly hair and I'm forever trying suggestions I read on nc.com - just bought GW Making Waves yesterday to give it a whirl :D
I'd love to try CG, but don't know if my waves will take to it nor do I know if I'll have the patience for it. Wish me luck!
My cg book arrived yesterday, and I immediately read it cover to cover then referenced it again this AM.
I've decided to give CG a try, especially since the book says it's A-OK for wavies to shampoo once a week - this I can do!
I'm determined to give up the blow dryer w/diffuser and refuse to add the curling iron to my curly locks. I'm also going to ditch my finishing hairspray (or I have the best intentions to). Feeling ambitious, ha. I wonder if it'll last...
