What an amazing thread this is. If anybody ever questions whether they should go CG, this is the thread to show them! You all look so beautiful!!

I haven't got much pre-CG that's in digital form, but this professional shot kinda shows just how I'd given up on my hair. No style, lame curl.

Post your before & After CG pics-jill.jpg

and then 11 months into CG:

Wow, jillipoo! I love those loopy ringlets! Makes me want to reach out and boing one! I know, I know better than to touch curls.

Jillipoo, your hair is gorgeous!

Well I tried a little experiment yesterday...some gel and a hair dryer. I normally let it air dry, but for the fun of it I wanted to see what would happen and here are my results. Now I just wish I had a diffuser...

pre CG
">

15 days after CG...

Almost 2 months after starting CG...me and my hair dryer....

You have pretty hair notegal. It's very similar to mine. Your hair looks thicker though. I sigh in envy.

I really like your haircut in your pre-CG pic. I think it looks great on your very attractive face -- it's a cute cut. But I absolutely LOVE your CG curls!!

I like to mix Suave coconut cond. with my gel and scrunch them both in, after using Suave Aloe and Waterlily to co-wash and condition. I detangle it in the shower with a wide-toothed comb. & when hair is dry, if crunchy, scrunch once again.

CG since Aug. 2, 2008!

You guys are killing me with these gorgeous bobs. How can I ever grow my hair out if you all are tempting me to chop again!

Why Thank You! It's the Jane Carter Nourish and Shine.

Jeepcurlygurl, I would never tempt you , but they are easier to handle than long hair.
