Happiest moment as a curly! *tear*
 
I've been not straightening for a year and a half, and CG for 4 months. In the last month my curls have finally reached their potential, bouncy 3a ringlets.

Over the past few weeks I've seen some old friends who are used to me not curly, and some new ones that only know me curly. I had always wondered why nobody seemed to comment or notice that I'm now curly, I figured most people just probably like it straight. Saturday one person made a comment about me curling my hair, I told them that it natural and they had no idea!! They couldn't believe I didn't use a curling iron!! THAT'S why they never said anything.

I'm sorry I sounds like I'm bragging but I am just so freaking blown away!!!! I'm use to frizzy dry waves, and CG has brought me to curling iron ringlets! I know it sounds dumb but I could cry, I've dreamed of this hair my entire life, never thinking I had it, but it turns out I DO!!!

Agreed! How awesome! I almost cried when a couple gals at my office asked if into a perm to 'enhance' my waves. That was when I realized how much stronger my curl pattern had gotten since going CG.

It's def a moment where the heavens song in our minds! Congrats and happy hair!

ha ha... how funny is that. You didn't think they liked it but all the while they thought it was too good to be true.

That's awesome! I'm a newbie to the CG method & this gives me such hope for my hair!

YAY! Would u mind sharing your hair routine/products?? :)

Jpop825 10-28-2012 02:07 PM

I'm constantly changing my products and routine to improve it. Right now here's what I do:

Low po with Shea moisture moisture retention shampoo (others I like are CJ gentle cleansing shampoo, CD Monoi shampoo), condition with SS Caitlin's conditioner.

I do this once, go 2-3 days, then add a little SS protein between shampoo/condish, go another 3 days or so and repeat.

Every couple weeks I'll use Dermalogica shampoo to clarify, some protein quickly, and SS deep treatment as a rinse out

I style I use either CJ CCCCL or Deva curl cream, then always CJ Curl Queen. I comb it out, add curl cream then use a denman brush.

Lately I've tried something new because my top layer always lays flat.

I've starred parting one side above my ears and flipping the rest over my head, then bushing/scrunching that under side, scrunching in my CQ and diffusing for about 2 min. Then I do the same on the other side. Then part in the middle and do the top layers one at a time. Sometimes I'll do the back in two sections but not always.

After this I diffuse all of it for another few minutes, let it completely air dry and SOTC with no product.

About half the time it turns out well, other times its pretty frizzy with looser curls. Still trying to perfect the art :)

I can't find a pic on a bad frizzy day as I usually don't photograph those days, haha
