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.

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...

3b Shoulder-length dark brown curls.
Using
: Suave Naturals conditioners, LA Looks Curl/Sport Gel, still looking for a good deep conditioner that i can buy locally (CVS/Walmart/Target,etc). Suggestions? =)

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!

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

Okay, so I managed to get onto an older computer of mine and was able to find some pictures. Gosh...I looked beyond horrendous! I honestly do not know how I had any friends...I guess I must have oozed with personality!
