Here is my hair... I've been having trouble growing it out, since I've had to continually go in for trims to get rid of some flat iron damage from ages past. Darn!



3a, wurly girl
loving deva angell, aohr, and mill creek botanicals jojoba poo

MJLove- Thank you! BTW, your hair (and you) are beautiful! I think that length and style is VERY flattering on you. I love how your curls are so uniform. When mine was your length, I had tons of sections of 3b skinny curls and then some looser 3as. It was very challenging at that length. Funny you mention liking my texture because I really don't have much at all- it's just this new texturizing cream that I put on when I'm finished diffusing. It has transformed my hair making it look so much more textured and full bodied. I don't quite understand how it works without weighing it down and never being sticky, but it does.

Hello fellow 3a's! What's this AOHR you guys seem to love?

I'm currently using Davines Love / Lovely Curl Enhancing Conditioner, Eufora Curl'n Defining Solution, DevaAngell...

Would you consider me a 3a?
Hey. Beautiful hair!
What products do you use?
Thanks! In that picture I was using all Deva products because my old stylist in NYC was Deva trained and got me started on them. Right now I'm using the Eufora and Davines products and I'm not sure how I feel about them. Also I made the mistake of doing a BKT on my hair in January and I'm waiting for it to wear off. My hair still curls just not as well at the moment.
Thanks very much, MJLove! You and your curls are absolutely stunning!

Another girl unsure if I belong on here or not! The first picture is my hair just after its been cut at Devachan.

And the picture on the right is when I try and style it myself! I used all the products how they did in Devachan, but it still doesn't look as good. I am sure it is a mixture of application and the big space aged dryer they use!

So what am I? Am I a 2c or a 3a or neither? I need to know where I truly belong!

I am getting fab hair envy from all you beautiful curlies.

Are you serious?!?! I think your hair looks better on the right!!

I'd say you are a 3a, but I'm new here so I may be wrong (it's happened once )

Here are my curls...I think, from what I'm seeing...I'm a 2b in the back and a 3a in the front. I'm still new to CG though, so I'm hoping as time goes on, my curls in the back get more curvaceous I love seeing the before and after...these pics are my befores!!
