Default Checking in!

Hello all

I don't recognize so many of your usernames but I used to be an active member here. I wrote a blog post that I see still gets linked occasionally (dormroomcurly).

I just wanted to check in after a several year long hiatus! My life got busy and I figured out how I like to do my hair, so naturallycurly and my blog sort of slipped into the background. I'm planning an update to my blog though and I'm thinking about making it a more regular thing again.

Anyway, I wanted to see if anyone from a few years ago was still here and introduce myself to some new people. I would love to know how everyone who I knew from my time here is doing and meet some new people!

Hi! I do not know you from here, but, I know your blog well. I have linked to it often here and on a Facebook group I am a part of.

I'm so glad you found it helpful. I actually decided to do a blog refresh/update after finding that post linked by a friend (who didn't know I wrote it) on pinterest!

Thanks! it isn't quite as curly as it was in my avatar anymore. I used to try to make it be curlier but now I just accept that I'm really more of a wavy and my curls start somewhere between my eyebrows and my ears and there's no changing it

Your blog was my first intro to CG! I'm still struggling with it here, very overwhelmed. But glad I got started.

You're too sweet

I'm modified. I recently started blogging again. The link is in my signature. I'm currently doing a series of posts on what products I use. I find that because my hair isn't naturally curly to the roots (it's straight then curls around my ears), I tend to get oily around my crown if I don't use a sulfate-free or low sulfate shampoo. I like a little lather, basically. That also lets me use whatever products I want.
