Progress Photos

Yes my hair is naturally that colour, I haven't had trouble accepting my curls but I have my colour. I've been completely blond and brown trying to disguise it in my teenage years. When I met my husband 6 years ago I was blonde, he forced me to go natural and ever since I've never looked back. Although I have dabbled with blonde highlights, which I now have colour matched to my roots as I grow them out. I can't wait to be all natural again. Plus my little girl is red too so I have to pass on the confidence.
My underneath isn't as curly and I have a section above the nape of my neck which is poker straight but I've given up caring about it now it is what it is. The curls around my face are definately tighter and it's the back of my hair that seems to need all of the tlc and encouragement.
I will keep you posted on my progress.

I hope your not in too much pain, you're very brave to have root canal. x

I think it would be fun to see everyone's before/after pictures! I'm pretty sure G&M would go for it too. I mean I joined this site to begin with because I saw tons of pictures of beautiful waves, curls, and kinks here and figured you guys must know what you're talking about.

Wow Iwantcurlyhair i so loooove your hair! if u ever decided to make samples of the flax seed gel im in to try some!

When I get to the point that I'm ready to send out samples I'll make sure to post and ask who wants a sample. Thanks for your post.

Yeah that sounds like my hair. Some days the hair at my nape is poker straight and silky and some days some random spirals will appear mysteriously. It's the weirdest thing, because it never waves though. I've come to accept my hair as it is as well. Although I admit that I've been staying away from curly layers since it seems to accentuate the fact. Now that the hair around my face is longer the curls are slightly more stretched out and my layers are growing out too so my hair looks much more uniformly curly.

It was either have a root canal and be in a small amount of pain for a few days or live with the pain constantly, but thanks. :P

Thanks Blush!
You are too sweet! Thank you so much iwantcurlyhair!! (trade ya!)

That is an amazing transformation. It should certainly inspire anyone who is just starting to learn how to care for and accept their hair.

Yep I'm trying to grow my top layer longer to cover my underneath. The way yours is cut is exactly the look I want. Is it all one length??

You should give red a go if you want it, I think your hair would be fine with a colour being that you treat it so well, especially if you only have a semi permanant

IWCH, I've always thought your hair is absolutely gorgous. It always looks so shiny and bouncy! But the difference in those pics is amazing!

hockeymomof3, YES!.. electronically transmitting hair now..I expect you to keep your part of the bargain ASAP. (it's getting kinda cold without hair)

Thank you for your wonderful comment jeepcurlygurl. I just love your latest picture. Your curls definitely look happy and bouncy in that picture.

Pitgirl, it's almost all one length. I have one more layer left to cut. There's less than an inch difference between my longest layer and my shortest layer now.
Sigh, How I've always longed to be born with naturally red hair. But I've recently made peace with my natural hair color. I just have to keep reminding myself that my hair color is a dark chocolate color and it's not a mousey brown. :P

Thank you Ladydncing. Your comment is so encouraging. And your pintura highlights still look lovely.

Lushaholic, I was wondering where you were! I just love those new bangs on your, you look so glamourous girl!

It's great to see so many familiar heads of beautiful hair. I'm used to the real world where you just don't see curls like you all have. You all truly are the inspirational ones.
Wow girl! Your hair looks amazing!! Hope you are doing well!

Hey girl! I am doing well. How was the wedding? How's married life treating you? I guess you should probably PM me those answers. *jaw drops to the floor* You cut your hair! It looks curlier now! It looks fabulous! Is your hair routine the same still?
PM'ed you!

This is my dream hair!!! I'd kill for this!!! I literally close my eyes at night and dream of my hair looking like this!!! I am so jealous!!!
It's funny all of my teenage years I thought my hair was straight, just poofy so that's why I had to straighten it. I was in such denial.
But yes I do love my hair now and I really do mean it when I say there's no way I could've embraced my curls and learned to love them if it wasn't for you guys!
