Curly hair issue
 
1 Attachment(s)
So I have been following the CG method for a while now (about 4 months) and I see improvements in my hair, but the problem is since I had to cut a lot of it off because its damaged. I see all these beautiful pictures of curly hair but I feel like my still isn't looking up to par.I was wondering if I should cut the stray straight ends off of my hair but I don't want to have it any shorter or else I cannot wear it in the bun that I wear everyday, please help!! (I am not at the point where I am confident enough to wear my curls down). M My routine is as follows
Co wash with Alba or Tresmme Climate Control
Leave in: Tresmme Naturals (KCNT dose not work all to well in my hair)
still looking for a gel, IC fantasia dosen't mix with Tresmme with out little white beads forming.

Morning: Water and Tresmme naturals

If you don't want to cut it, don't! Deep condition!!!!! Go to a salon or read product reviews. It will make a big difference.. Also, I use the devacare line (about 3 years now) and my hair looks amazing. It continues to get better as it grows, it stinks but you may have to wait :/ Continue to take very good care of it and it will only get better. I feel like I've tried every drugstore brand, I found the curly girl book and it changed my life. I don't mean to be corny, it's true. Love your curls and they will love you back.

I personally would cut those straight ends off , I think in the long run you will be happier having healthy curls whether they be short or long

I don't know if you were aware of this, but Tresemme Climate Control conditioner is not CG (and therefore, you can't really co-wash with it). In other words, you're not following strict CG. If this was intentional, just ignore this bit, but if your hair isn't quite liking the routine, I'd cut out the silicones (-cones, -xanes) and give full CG a try.

As for your straight ends, do just cut them off. While there is a possible chance that you could salvage some of the length that isn't really damaged, you're going to trim your hair every once in a while anyway, and it just makes more sense to eliminate another full cut down the road (as opposed to a trim).

To use gel, try a clear leave in.

I never thought of this... Good idea! I think I'll try it.

When I first started taking care of my hair I had straight damaged areas at the front, on the areas I use to flat iron the most. I didn't want to chop off my hair all at once because the rest was so long and I didn't think it would look right. What I chose to do was curl the bits that were damaged, I didn't use any heat, I just used regular heatless rollers and put them in after I applied all my leave in. I would let my hair dry partially and take them out and end up with curls. I did this until my hair grew in enough for me to cut off the damaged ends and still have fairly long front pieces that looked good with the rest of my very long hair.
I guess it depends on how much damage you have as well. Mine wasn't on my whole head it was only on a small area and I only needed like four small rollers this could be a bit more tedious if you have a lot of damage.

I used the climate control this wash as a co wash and my hair loved it! It looks like this now!
