Couple of inches past shoulder length 3A. Shampoo every 3rd or 4th day w/ baby shampoo; Tigi Fashionista conditioner; back to Condition 3-in-1 mousse . Alternate days water rinse, conditioner and mousse.
I can totally identify, I could have written the intro in reference to trying to look like Marcia Brady and everyone of my friends with stick straight long hair. Since no one could cut curly hair my mother insisted my hair be kept very short which was okay when I was 6, but I took a beating in jr high and high school. Thank goodness things have changed and young girls have more options to manage their curly hair thanks to this site and all the great support.
Congrats to Michelle and Gretchen for some great and well-deserved PR. I bet traffic here spiked up today! Love hearing the fact that so many products have come out. Not my fault my hair looked so crummy in the 1990s!
3B, I think w/very thick hair, shoulder length. Fall hair: Low Poo, TS, CK, Aloeba leave in, recoil or RR, plop, BRHG or SMU, no blow dry.
Hooray!!! Curlies are finally getting some recognition. Where I work, we sell about 5 CHI irons a day. (no joke!) Curly girls (and boys) deserve their place in the sun, and the New York Times is a good place to start. Congratulations, Michelle and Gretchen, on your mention in a major newspaper.
I use the Totally Twisted line from Herbal Essences: Conditioner/gel daily; shampoo and Wella In-Depth treatment once a week.
