Ends are looking good...

I've been doing the CG thing deliberately for a year now, 4 years total if you count the 3 non-deliberate CG years.

Anyway, I think my ends are looking good. It's been 6 months since my last trim and I think I've had literally 3 split ends this entire time. That's kind of unheard of for me. I usually try to get a trim every 4 months. Now I think I'm going to make it to the 9 month mark.

So that's cool. Just wanted to share. I do have to say however, that even though my hair is in good shape health-wise, I'm still not sure I've found the perfect way to style yet. O well....
Lauraimes and sixelamy like this.
fine - low/normal porosity - medium density - normal elasticity.

Currently using:
Cowash: Cure Care diluted with water 1:1
RO: Cure Care, V05 Kiwi Lime
Styler: UFD CM (old formula), FSG + CNPF
PT: IAgirl's gelatine

Experimenting with: no guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, gelatin gel

Recent findings: my hair likes Cure Care diluted with water as a cowash; does NOT like guar h.c.!

iherb discount code: CFN646
I know what you mean! I never get a cut because of split ends or dead ends. My hair dresser even felt that it wasn't necessary if it were purely based on the health of my hair. The only reason I go is to get some layers again, because my hair grows like crazy!

Btw, I did a search on iHerb today because I'm going to order something and I'm a bit indecisive, and then ended up in a thread that you commented on. I had no idea you live in Asia! For some reason I always assumed you're from the USA. I was so surprised.

Beauty Is Not a Number
Laura you're so lucky your hair grows like crazy! I'm jealous... I've been wanting my hair to grow grow grow! The more it springs the shorter it gets and feels like it's not growing at all. Also I'm just dying to get rid of the rest of my thinned out bits.

Also I move around a lot and travel quite a bit.
