wow! your hair transformation is amazing. it looks gorgeous! i never ever could imagine from your first pic that your hair could get that curly!

Wow! Everyone has such gorgeous curls! And there has been major improvements with going cg! We should share this thread with Lorraine Massey!

Well here are a few pics of my curly journey!

I was a curlie in denial and straightened everyday for over 10 years...


Then I started to wonder what my natural curls looked like. So I stopped straightening, but this is what I looked like...

not really much curl there.

So here I am after CG!

Also, I kind of felt that there wasn't that much of a difference showing yet, but actually looking at the old photos, there is, isn't there?

These photos are incredibly inspiring. It's so amazing to see the gorgeous transformations.
Bump. More pictures!

Sorry about the cheesy pic of my and my cat, but it does a good job of showing how crazy my hair got.

Pre CG






And Post CG, about 3 months in. (A little dark, sorry)


I have been watching this thread grow larger and larger and have been totally amazed by all the transformations. I did not think I had a good 'curly' hair day until today! I took a couple of pics to give an idea. My hair is loving my new routine! I apologize in advance for the pics being so big.

Before CG: (thought it was a GREAT hair day)



After CG: (about 1.5 months)

3a/3b combo
Current products:
Poo:1-2x/week Burts Bees Super Shiny
Cowash: Suave Naturals Coconut
Condish: Loreal Vive Nutri Gloss
Styling Products: KY, LOOB, trying KCCC and KCKT
Really like vinegar rinses and honey
I wasnt sure it would work but now i love my hair. You can go through some rough times during cg but if you stick them out youll have really nice hair. Ive cut mine alot i dont know why lol, but i think its helped some to get rid of the the "old" hair. my hair grows faster than it ever had when straightened. I just love my hair now

And its only been FOUR months cant wait till a year!

Before: (heat damaged & cones gallore)


After: (pardon the 2nd day hair)

Another: (still Wet)

These post pics of cg are great! What do you guys use as far as a deep conditioner/treatment? Do you even feel is necessary to have a dt/dc? Do you use a hair dryer for the dc/dt? Do you feel is necessary to use shampoo bars exc. Thanks
I have been dealing with this mass of curly hair for years. I even thought I had it down. Silly me. Looking back, its clear: I have one good hair day picture: Thanksgiving Day in 2005 I think:



My worst hair day was in February of 2008. I was "trying" the natural look. I figured if I let it go natural a couple of days, maybe it will look good. Not so much. So much damage had already been done. Not to mention the sls I dumped all over my head everyday:



Then I finally got smart (after finding this site of course!) and now I have pretty curls! I have a routine that is simpler than ever before, and you can actually TOUCH my hair! Touchable AND shiny curls! Who would have thunk it?! I am so thankful to everyone and their great curls and informative signatures. I wouldn't have known where to start!
