There's another round-up of links by QUIRKY YOGINI in the sticky: Useful Curly Links



Note: I'll add more links bit by bit. If there's a classic thread on a technique or a popular new one you think should be added to this thread discussion, please post the link--without a lot of discussion so people can use this as a links list, not a discussion thread. Please SKIM/READ LIST before offering a link so there is no redundancy. Please only offer links to threads on Curltalk--or very pertinent articles on NC that I will consider, but I prefer to keep it to "buried threads" that will be of use. This isn't an "any and all links". This is for TECHNIQUE threads in Curltalk's forum that have very useful info and have had plenty of discussion/traffic/tips/confirmations of usefulness! THANKS.

PS: If you think this thread list is helpful enough to warrant a sticky, please PM the moderators to request this. THANKS.

This is a great idea! Well done Mircurls! Thanks for taking the time to do it.

I've been here for a few months now... and some how I've managed to miss some of these techniques because they get so buried in the forum.

Thanks again!!

I agree, this should be a sticky. Thanks so much for taking the time to get all this info together in one thread. This is a great idea!

This is great for us who have been around awhile, but especially for the newbies.

This thread is a wonderful idea - so many great resources.

However, a few of these links (or the links referenced in the threads) are broken or defunct (both clipping links and the skip-curl link).
I found a skip-curl video at the curly hair wiki:

Hi. Thanks for the suggestion, but I wanna keep this inhouse--just NC/Curltalk stuff, especially THREADS that easily get lost in the traffic causing newbies (and oldies) to have a tough time discovering/rediscovering them.

BTW...I just tested the links and they work.

Note again for those about to post links: I'm only using links for threads or articles ON THIS SITE. Anyone can google for wiki, etc. I wanted to give easy access to helpful threads that get "buried" with traffic.

I tested the clipping and skip curl links and they are working to link to the threads. And the skip curl thread has the direct link to the Frizzoff site's video on skip curling as shown by J Torch (ie, the one that's on wikia.com). I tried NOT to link to threads that had no useful info and checked the threads' posts before linking in master op.
