I feel so blessed to have my curls! I'm a 3a and its growing out to the length I am happy with. It's so shiny and has great bounce.. It's soothing to play with the curls individually when I am stressed and anxious. I started the CG method about 3 years ago and I couldn't be happier. I have the hair I always wanted and I want to tell every curly girl I see about CG and this site! I used to be frustrated, now I'm happy.
