New! Need advice!

Ok so I am going to try to keep this short and sweet without rambling so I am going to number my points ha
1. Im 18 with 3a/3b hair, it is in 2 layers from when I layered my hair during my straightening phase (it goes halfway down my back)
2. I have messed up my hair alot in the past but now I am ready to make it healthy and appreciate my natural curls =)
3. I want to get my hair cut so i am going to include three pictures, one of my hair with no products (from 2 years ago), a picture of the hairstyle, and a current picture of what my face looks like (to see if the style could be a good fit for me, sorry i only have current pictures with straight hair)


Do you think I could pull off her hairstyle? The hairstyle gurl is the reason I want to start taking care of my hair, i found her videos on youtube and she convinced me to take care of my hair, if that makes since lol. Her username is shortysgs03 she reviews alot of stuff, incase any of you are interested ha.
4. I do want to try CG but I am nervous to change my hair. But I think I am going to do it for the health of my hair. I know the no no ingredients for the conditioners but what kinds of conditioners should I use? And what do I do to begin the process?

Thank you all! and I know I will have TONS more questions as I get started lol.

<3 Our love is like the wind; I can't see it. But I can feel it. <3
Hey! I think you could rock that hairstyle!
@kurlyprincess, thanks so much for those links they helped so much!!! I just am about out of my yuck filled conditioner so I am very excited to pick up a new one
@chichila thanks! Sometimes i feel like loved ones just tell you what you want to hear so i wanted to make sure it would fit my face
I'm getting a hair cut in a few weeks and really wanted to get the same cut as "shortysgs03" too (I was also inspired to get my hair healthy again by her videos). I think it would look great on you. I also wanted to know, are you going to bring the picture to your stylist and ask her to copy the style? Because I want the same cut, but I'm not sure how to explain it to my stylist. Should I just bring in a picture?
@whirlykurly, she is very inspiring to me. And i really have no idea what im going to do. When I go to make the appointment ill ask the stylist how shes gonna do it and yeah i will take the picture. The thing is i want it to look good curly and straight so i dont know ha. I feel like if my stylist is a miracle worker she can cut it straight and know how it will come out curly but maybe im reachin for the stars wit that one ha

Also, I really like the way your hair looked in the picture from two years ago. I have a very similar texture now (except mine is far more frizzy, especially on top) and I was wondering how you got your curls to look so defined and frizz free?
@whirlykurly, I actually dont know anyone who knows how to deal with curly hair. I do know a very good hairstylist though who I think when she sees the style she will know how to cut it straight to get those results after she studys my hair ha. I hope it works lol. And does "shortysgs03" have layers? It looks like she has some ha.
And I just shampooed, conditioned and didnt touch it ha. The minute i touch it there is hair everywhere! lol. I am hoping to find a hair product that will leave my curls looking like that, the current product I use I put in while my hair is wet so the end result is loose curls like when I just get out the shower =/ lol

The one thing I know about her haircut, is that she got a "devacut", which is the type of haircut I think I might get. Oh, and you said you were hoping your stylist would cut your hair straight and get those results. Are you wearing your hair straight or curly? I'm confused.
@whirlykurly, Oh yeah she did say she got a divacut. I dont think I could do that ha i would be much to terrified. And sorry for the confusion, I do wear my hair curly. I just mean that if she can cut it when its straight and get my desired curly look that would be best. Instead of me going to the salon wit curly hair and her trying to cut it even, it doesnt usually work out. I hope that makes sense.

You have to keep in mind that when your hair is straight, it's much longer than it is curly. So you don't want you stylist to end up cutting your hair too short. But you said you have a good stylist so maybe she will be able to do it.
@whirlykurly, yeah i know. What will prolly happen is she will prolly cut it curly and style it that way and then straighten it to make sure all the hair is even. I started CG today im so happy lol
Oh okay. That sounds like it would work. Good luck! Hope your hair cut turns out great. (Hope mine does too)
