Post your before & After CG pics

Like Tree828Likes

Ok, this is my first time posting pics, so I hope it works. I'm just guessing at how to do it

The first pic is a couple of years old. It's what I used to consider a good hair day! The second two were taken a few days ago, 5 days after going completely CG. I love the difference, and it's getting better all the time!

What an AWESOME thread!


Could we somehow get this made a sticky? Along with the two other great threads of straight and curly pics, and the brushed-out hair thread -- a curly trifecta!

Honestly, I look at these photos and I'm just blown away by how beautiful and varied hair can be. Plus everyone is so beautiful! I think someone should curate an exhibit at a museum of these beautiful faces and beautiful heads of hair. Not only that, but if everyone could see the pics of the transformations, it would inspire a lot of stylists to learn something about cutting and caring for textured hair rather than just trying to make it straight, and the cosmetics industry might start making more products that are actually good for our hair.
2-something? Coarse, medium underneath. Mid-back. On CG since 5/9/07.
Washing COs: VO5 Blackberry, Suave Cherry
Detangle and leave-in: Sally's GVP Conditioning Balm -- I found my HG CO!
Seal with camellia oil
Leave-in: Aura cherry almond
Gels: Homemade FSG, Eco-styler
Plus: SOTC or smooth with camellia oil, JC Nourish & Shine
Homemade food-based DTs
RC color
Your transformations are all amazing !!

Here is mine:

Before CG - 2007


After CG - End of 2007


I'm still following that method, even if sometimes I shampoo my hair (with a sulfate-free shampoo).

Thank you!

In Brazil it is complicated to look after itself of curly hair. The media imposed a standard of beauty in which straight hair predominates.

Most of our population have ethnic hair, but it is very difficult they they show
We are still little curlies, however settle!
