You mean the Curly Girl book? Are you able to order things from other EU countries? (I'm not sure about rules or expenses for that.) If you are, the German Amazon.com carries it here.

I love these. Everybody looks so good, and it's nice to see pics from some that I don't see pics of very often.

At least you guys always had some kinda curls. Look at my before! It's just hanging there all fuzzy and crinkly.

I don't see any curls in my before - just Frizz-Ease coated stuff that is neither a wave nor a curl, and not in a good way, lol.

Interesting, none of the befores look bad, but it does show that some of us never really see our curl potential until we change our routines around.

Interestingly, I discovered this week when I found some old containers of them, that the combination that had given me the best "pre-CG" hair and that I really liked before finding this site was...silicone free. Imagine that.

It's really cool to see what CG can do for some people. Always knew I couldn't stand the pouf but had no idea i had this much curl lurking in the shadows of sulfates and 'cones.

But whatsercurl, your before pic is so tiny! OK I guess you can be in the "What were we thinking" club. SoaringSiren can't, because while her hair got way cuter after CG, it was already cute before.

Well for me it is: NO SHAMPOO! No Silicones ('cones or 'xanes), no brushing..Ever!, lots of condish. A good basic CG method

I knew there was a difference, but until I found these before pics I didn't realize how much of a difference.
