Smile Finally figured out my hair! Thanks to all of you!

I turn 36-years old in 3 weeks...and today is the first day I feel honestly GOOD about my hair.

I am a Type 3a/b and I have spent my entire life flat-ironing/hot rolling the curls out of my hair....to make it presentable. Here's what it looked like "before" (this is pre-styling...just before flat ironing)

4 weeks ago, I went "Curly Girl"...and once I started seeing results, I had a Deva cut. Now...my hair is in better shape than it's ever been.

After scouring these boards for which products I should try...and spending WAY more money than I should have (testing them out)...I now have a good routine and I am seeing improvements each day in my curl definition...and general lack of fizziness.

So, thank you all! For your advice, for your beautiful pictures that inspired me to give this a "go", and just for your sense of community.

I'm a curly girl now!!! And, I am not alone! Here's the new "me"...

Thank you so much! I feel a LOT better...and it's so much easier than the hours I'd spend straightening.

I think I still have a ways to go, though. Just figuring out a good product routine is the toughest.
