Curl pattern getting tighter over time?
 
Hi guys!

Have this weird phenomenon going on with my hair and am curious about your thoughts.

The very first time I went CG, my curls came out as a nice 2C.

I quickly got better at it especially at scrunching. And the overall condition of my hair improved. Hair was mostly a 3A now. Even days after washing it was still a nice 3A.

But these last few days I have noticed that it's gotten tighter... my curls! It's not there yet, but it's really hinting towards a 3B! I'm shocked/surprised.

It's not like I hate it or something. In fact, I don't know what to think of it yet :P

Anyone else experienced this? I know that curl pattern usually changes a bit shortly after starting CG, but I've been there already. Been CG for 6 months now.

Or could it be the weather or something?

I haven't changed products... except deep treatment.

I have been CG for seven months and noticed my curls are getting tighter too.

when I started, my hair MAYBE a 2c. There were waves galore, and then underneath some strong 3a's. As I have been CG longer, I'm CG since Oct, things are tightening up. I noticed the other day after my hair dried that I had 6 large curls under and they were TIGHT. and clumped. It's definitely getting curlier.

Yup, it's pretty common actually. When I was doing true CG, I could make my hair curl all the way from my scalp to the roots. When I'm using modified CG (which is what I do now) my hair starts curling around my ears.

Yes I think they get tighter since they are getting healthier. I started off with barely a curl then considered myself a 2c so far I think it's been 2 months or getting close and my hair is looking more like 3a. I would love if it can get to 3b lol.

Yay! I'm excited. My first day of CG my ringlets were mainly at the bottom but they climbed up my head the following 2 weeks. Also I've been doing a naked hair test at the end of every month to see what my hair looks like if I let it dry without product. There was a huge difference between month 1 and 2. I'll have to keep my fingers crossed for month 3. :mrgreen:

I agree. Ive been mod cg since oct starting as a 2c mainly and im much more 3a now too as the months go along. I do switch up products a lot but i also have been steaming weekly and i think thats been helping curl pattern too. Its amazing what caring for your hair can do for your curls.

My experience has also been like that. The healthier my hair is the curlier it has gotten.

Thanks everyone for your opinions and experiences!! :)

Interesting to know that I'm not the only one :D
And man I would NEVER have thought I would walk around with anything close to 3B... seemed so unrealistic (for me). And so it's probably because of hair getting healthier... I know how to take care of hair, but this is a nice confirmation that I'm doing it right, lolol :) hehe ^^

This morning I did my whole routine again, and it's still quite tight. So it wasn't just a one time thing. I even took a pic of it.

It's a lot tighter than my signature pics, isn't it~?

Mine were at first too. Nice tight ringlets that I never really knew I had. Unfortunately, my hair seems looser lately :( I think it might be damage..

creativelicense 02-24-2013 02:30 PM

Yep, my hair went from 3A to close to 3C in places over the last two years of wearing my hair curly.

Ooo. . . ringlets. :tongue10: Very nice curly tresses.

Librijenne 03-04-2013 04:16 PM

Ooh, I hope that happens with mine!

anonymous_135172 03-04-2013 04:46 PM

Same here. After 2 months as my hair is getting healthier I went from a loose 2b to a 3a. I did cut layers in my hair so I am sure that helped too.
