awww thank youuu! but seriously...my hair doesnt stay like that for long. i usually have to put it up after like 3 hours...it gets HUGE. I NEVER let people touch my hair either or it'll get really frizzy...hahaha

this is my routine: (i wash my hair every other day)
  • shower
  • use little shampoo or sometimes go without shampooing
  • i use pantene pro-v conditioner for curls and comb it through
  • i leave that in for a little bit while i shave, etc.
  • i flip my hair over while im in the shower..but i dont let the water hit my hair (i just started doing this recently..it's not as messy as what i used to do)
  • then i comb my hair upside downthen i rinse my hair again because the comb makes it stringy even though its a wide comb
  • thennnnn i put in a little bit of the conditioner again and start putting my gel in (bed head-creative genius) and rub it through every place that I can possibly get to
  • this is all while im upside down haha
  • i flip my hair back up...and put some gel in my hand and get the roots/top parts of my hair and then flip back over and scrunch it until its not that wet anymore
  • then put a towel on my head
if you dont scrunch it while it's drying you'll get hard hair with that gel...so i keep scrunching it so its not that plasticy..but I HAVE to keep it a little hard so it doesnt get huge within an hour...

it sounds very complicated but thats how i do it! i do my hair and break my neck all at the same time! & i go through a bottle of gel a week ($16 a week)

Oh you girls have really beautiful hair! That's mine, I think I'm a 3b, what do you think? These pics are quite recent, but lately my hair looks extremely fizzy and voluminous (voluminous in an horrible way I mean), that's why I'd want to have a new haircut.

you're hair kind of looks like mine only darker!! but i would say you're a 3b/c. i dont even know......

but your hair is really pretty!
All you curlies have beautiful hair - WOW!
--Sileree, love, love your hair -length is great. Very similar to mine -curls & length. Wish I had recent photos of my hair to post - maybe soon. Thanks all for sharing. ~CT~
HairType: multi-texture 3a/b/c
Thank you so much Notty and Th1! You made me feel really good!
I actually just went and got it cut again today! I had her take off about another inch (which as you know in curly terms is about 2 inches). I'll post pics soon. I've got to take a little time to figure out how to work/style it now. I just had got the hang of it right before todays cut. Like I said, I've always had very long hair but just wanted to go very very short and drastic! I guess that's what happens when your brain is fried from kids and life! HA! Anyways, it's so much easier and it feels so much better...like it feels "fresh". Living in Florida, it's always nice to feel "fresh".

Here's my curls...I love looking at all your lovely hair! It's SO gorgeous.

3a/b - medium texture.
Not sure if I am a 3b- but here goes.
I'm suffering split ends at the moment because of overcolouring..and still trying to come up with a routine that my hair agrees with.
I've just recently switched to Jasmin and Henna pre shampoo condition, curly wurly shampoo, coolaulin condition..all by Lush. Hair feels alot softer, smells gorgeous, and the curls are staying in place.
Why is this always a battle.

Thank you JenniKS! I really appreciate it.

Honestly, my hair is seriously thick so that helps.

--I wash with a low-poo shampoo (pretty much daily, my hair is so thick it seems to like to have a clean slate every day!)
--Comb thru a leave-in conditioner with head flipped over(using Abba right now)
--Scrunch in small amounts of KCCC with head flipped over (I can't use very much of this or it gets icky)
--Scrunch in curl keeper with head flipped over
--I clip back the hair on the top of my hair until the hair hanging down is dry
--unclip to top (it is still pretty wet)
--bend over and scrunch
--let it air dry
--scrunch out crunch when dry
--lastly, slip my fingers into the roots and lightly shuffle/rustle just right there at the root (sometimes I might use a little tweek doing the same thing)

That is really it.

Thanks again!
