New to CG. These pics are from about a week in and one co wash after switching to no-protein products.

Does anybody else have hair like this??? I posted a pic in a pony tail and in a braid to show the ridiculous density/thickness.

I can't get it back that long to save my life....I could sit on it when straightened.......although I am at almost waist length now.

Your hair is gorgeous!!!

Being able to sit on your hair must've been super long! Do you have trouble with tangling? I'm looking for some hair twins for help with products and such.

Thanks for the compliment! It's like a part time job. Lol.

ok curlies.... Officially obsessed with curl keeper! Been using it for a few days now and my curls totally got out of their winter funk. They're all springy and defined with less frizz!

Sorry I can't seem to fix the sideways pictures.

Medium texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity
I've been trying it different gels over it for a little for hold. So far I've had really good luck with Aussie instant freeze and decent luck with ouidad tress fx. I've gotten really good second day hair with it too! I still get a little frizz but my curl definition is loads better!

Wow! Very nice
Medium texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity
A little frizz?!?!?!? What are you talking about? I don't see any frizz. If that is second day hair, I'd take it any day... as first day hair.

Don't be so hard on your curls. They are wonderful, little flyaway hairs and all.

Mix of 3s, thick, coarse, medium porosity

Current hair styling technique: rake with a scrunch at the end. (works with my coarse hair)

I'm new and i think i have a mixture of 3b hair ..
post your 3b pics-imageuploadedbycurltalk1363194018.589776.jpg

Im also thinking about cutting it to my armpit because my curls are bouncier when short
Curyminx the picture didn't really pick up the frizz but I want complaining either. I have never had second day hair look that good and normally my first day hair had even more frizz than that. Curl keeper is totally my new HG!

OK. I just get crazy when you/we (general you/we) are so quick to harshly criticize our hair when it looks great.

I still get a little unhappy about my frizz too, but I try to remind myself that my worst days are still better than any day before I found this site.

Sorry it's so big!

Just got it colored on Tuesday. My stylist walked me through how she was doing everything (she used all Deva products on me). My hair was really nice afterwards, but not as soft as I would like. I went to Sally Beauty yesterday and the gal who was working was super helpful. She recommended the One N Only Argan Smoothing Shampoo & Condish (which were all of $10/bottle). Got some flour sack towels, and pulled my Deva styling cream and sample size of AnGEL out of the cabinet this morning for my shower. I did what my stylist told me to do (but with the different shampoo/condish), put the products in while in the shower, and then used the Deva Diffuser to get about 20% of the water out (maybe 5 min total with the dryer on). My hair is so soft, my curls are controlled, and I am so incredibly happy!
Sad update... I think the curl keeper is drying my hair out! I tried switching up my gels but all i'm getting is weird frizzy and stringy curls... I'm going to take a break from the ck for a little bit just to make that's what it is. Anyone else have this problem before?

I tried Curl Keeper today and my hair was the worst it's been for months. Dry, limp, horrible. (I tried it when I first started CG and had the same result, so that's it. It's going to the sell/swap board.) Anyway, you are not alone!
Medium/coarse, low porosity, dense, mix of 3s
CG (again) since Nov. 2012

Cleanse: SM Moisture Retention, Elucence MBC, KC Come Clean
Condish: Giovanni DL, Cure Care, Ion Treatment, GVP Balm, AOHR
Protein: AOGPB, CNPF, SSRPT
Stylers: KCCC, SM Souffle, AOMM, SS CEJ, JCRR, JCCC


Trying out steaming!
I might try ck in the summer when it's not so cold. I'm wondering if the glycerine just isn't reacting well with the cold Seattle weather. All I know is it's back to the drawing board for me!

If the dew point is too low, the glycerin is going to suck for your hair.

Certain products are counter productive in low dew points.
