This is my hair today. One of my better days, I'd say - spent extra time in the shower massaging my scalp because it tends to get insanely greasy almost instantaneously the minute I rinse the shampoo out. I live in Houston...humidity has been anywhere between 80-100% lately (argh!), so the past 2 weeks it's been up in a loose pony so only half of it can curl...I had a musical performance tonight and decided to let it breathe.

(I use AG Curl shampoo & condish, Fast Food leave-in, and Re:Coil cream)

It took me 30 years to love my curls. Also to learn how to take care of them :-)
^^ your hair is so pretty!
<3 Our love is like the wind; I can't see it. But I can feel it. <3
Stef, I have similar curls but mine don't look like that now

What are you using? What type of hair do you have? What did you use in that pic? Who cuts your hair? Do you color???

Do tell!
3b/fine/normal porosity/normal elasticity

LOVES behentrimonium methosulfate
(don't ask me to pronounce that!)


Want to grow it long again!
And simply want to figure out this hair of mine!

CG since August 14, 2011 (newbie!)

Type: 3B(?)/thick/coarse

Currently using: Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture, Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Gel, Coconut Oil
Thank u gals so much. So in this pic I was actually using my holy grail at the time Mixed Chicks Leave In and Sebastian shaper zero gravity hairspray to hold my style. I also used a diffuser. But now unfortunately Mixed Chicks leave in doesn't work for me anymore and I don't why Now I use KKKT as a leave in, on top of that one pump of naturals moisture conditioner and to my ends Deva One Conditioner. Then I get a paper towel and scrunch out some of water. Since my hair is soaking wet when i apply all this. Last I scrunch in LA looks blue sports gel. Then after I air dry and it's completely dry I scrunch out the scrunch upside down. If I don't have time I'll diffuse and sometimes stretch my curls. My second day hair has a lot more volume. It feels and looks healthier too. Oh and I also tease with a pick in some areas like the top of my head.

Sorry this was so long and I hope it helps. I'll c if I could find a pic of my hair with my new process.

Oh thank you!

My hair is 3b (or or did you mean something else with "type" ?). And I'm using Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner and 2 conditioner of "Alverde" (a german company, unfortunately they don't ship to the U.S).
And sometimes I just wash with water .

excuse my bad english .
OK! The pic with the tiny baby is from 2008 (I used to blow my "bangs" dry and it stretched them out). The one with two kiddlets was this past Christmas and my avatar is current and in great need of a cut.
