I didnt start wearing my hair curly until I started CG. No way I would have went into public the way my curls looked before CG. For me its was more the technique to form curls than the condition of my hair.
Its been a 4 year journey for me to figure out exactly how to style my curls and what products work best. I had strayed from CG for well over a year and when I got my first Deva cut went back to full CG. For me the Deva cut is the only cut. It makes a huge difference for me. I spend less on Deva cuts because I dont have to cut as often. CG has made me love my curls.
