Hair Cut

Hi
Im going in for my first hair cut since Ive tried to go CG and I was wondering since im a wavy should i see if she will cut it dry? Or maybe it doesnt matter as much?? Also, wondeirng if any of you usually bring in your products to keep CG at the salon or just let them use what they have? Its not a fancy pants salon or anything but they do sell the AG products, are any of their shampoos/conditioners CG? Thanks!!

I think dry cuts are best for people who's hair shrinks a lot when it dries. My hair doesn't shrink too much, but I do like to have it cut dry so that I'm sure it's even all the way around. If you have a lot of shrink, I would definitely ask for a dry cut, but if not than you could probably do either. (I'm not sure on this, so you may want another opinion)

As far as taking products w/ you, I'd say take them if you feel more comfortable that way, but be prepared for a possible fight if the stylist isn't on the CG bandwagon. When my friend went for a cut, the stylist lectured her for 30 minutes about not using a shampoo AFTER complimenting her hair's condition and asking what she was doing to get it that way... :x I go to a Devachan (sp?) trained stylist, but if I didn't I would just let the person use whatever, just to avoid this kind of confrontation.

And if your hair is already in pretty good condition, one shampoo or one time using a product w/ cones in it won't destroy your hair.

GL! Let us know how it turns out!

It kinda sucked actually. I didnt take any products, i chickened out, they use AG and MOP so i figured it couldnt be to bad but they didnt use any of the MOP

Maybe i just have never been to a "good" salon and this is actually common but they had someone wash my hair ( i told him i was sulfate / cone free and he laughed at me, then told me how nice my hair was..go figure) and then he combed it out (with a fine tooth comb!) without anything in it, which felt really pleasent. then i saw the stylist who was nice enough i guess and gave me a decent cut (my layers are a bit short) but since i didnt see her until it was washed and combed, i was annoyed because i just think it would be hard to know what to do with someones hair without knowing what it actually looks like!

i dont have any pictures, sorry! we are in between cameras...i lost ours on the flight home from our honeymoon

i can say that my hair is wonderfully better in the month i have been CG, i wish i had taken a before and after photo, its really remarkable.

I'm glad to hear that your hair is in better condition, but that sucks about the salon! A fine tooth comb!? AAAAHHHH! i would have run away!!!

Before I went CG I would go to salons that would have someone to wash hair and clean up the shop, so that is common. Isn't it funny how someone could scorn the way you take care of your hair and in the same breath compliment how healthy it is? Do people just NOT make the connection??

You are right though - how is the stylist supposed to know what your hair is going to do when it's dry? Oh wait, it's b/c EVERYONE'S hair is stick straight w/ no wave/curl to it at all... how silly of me to forget...

When you get a camara definitely get a fotki account and put up pics. I still see improvements in my hair, and I've done a CG or mod-CG routine for about 8 months, so you can still get decent before/after shoots!
