Congratulations to both of you!

girl:

Since you weren't specific I'm going to guess you're referring to the part where it says you can decide whether to rinse or not... If so, after you have detangled your hair and it feels slippery you can choose to either just lightly rinse the CO off or not at all - this is good to do the first time if your hair has been seriously dehydrated by daily blow drying or your hair is color-treated. For some hair types it works well at every rinsing, especially during the cold months, but I would only recommend this if you're using a good CO as some of the drugstore ones can quickly build up on your hair pulling down the curl (but all you have to do is clarify with the "Lemon-Aid" at that point and use less CO from there on).

Greencurls:

I'm excited for you too! That book is my "hair bible" , I keep going back to it again and again even though I've had for over 4 years now. Last night I was reading the chapter about color all over again.

I really hope you all get as much benefit from it as I and many other sister curlies already have, you are just in time to start the New Year with great curls!!

You got me confused now, first you say it's the conditioning process and now you say it's the clipping. Can you mention the page you're referring to? An if it's clipping for styling the pictures show how so I wouldn't know how to explain it in words any better. Anyway, it takes practice to get it right and it's not absolutely necessary to do. You can also come up with your own thing to do to get a little lift at the top. I don't use the clips like it's in the book, when I use them it's usually to keep the hair from touching the sides of my face while it's drying because the way my hair is cut the DG way doesn't work for me.
