I think you could walk around with words and stick people drawn on your face and still look supercute.

The picture is out on my fotki where for some reason it is bigger. But I know what I was thinking - that I was a "straight" reject.

drastic changes!

i need to know!!
For me it was ditching the silicones and sulfates and adding real moisture. The silicones make me stringy and limp.

Tanna, your pics llok great!

Bleaching/highlights and texlaxing did a job on my hair. I was so not ready to accept the hair growing out of my head, I couldn't see what the chemicals were doing to me.

That's exactly why I haven't posted. I took "before" pictures and I had pictures from when I first cut my hair (donated 12") this last time and my computer crashed taking everything with it. I looked through photo albums and every single one of me has my hair in a pony tail.

Before CG, I used to shampoo frequently, brushed my hair, didn't use any products. I HATED my hair so much and thought thats just how it was and there was nothing I could do to improve it!:







After CG;

WWOOWWIEE! Drastic! It has finally convinced me that to boost my wavy curls (or curly waves) into full frontal curls.

Currently, I haven't been cleansing besides deep treating it once in a while, straighten it about once ever two weeks or more (!) and use shampoo once a week sometimes more, like suave regular. and use cones. (shame shame on me) But it has helped already so i et this will give me a boost. Plus I'm going to get a curly cut. I'll ask then to cut each curl. Yay. But i'll start nexy week because this week i cna't bring along my rtresemme condish with me and dont want to have to bottle it and all.

Ok, so I've dug out an old picture. My hair doesn't really photograph well because it's so dark, but this is as good as I could get. I was just about ready to deliver my son who is now 8 so this was taken quite a few years ago.



And this was taken after my first ACV rinse. My favorite post-CG picture of me.

Thanks! I use Max Factor mascara, the one in the black tube (not gold) and thats it, my eyelashes are naturally long and thick which I am sooo grateful for and I don't do anything else to them apart from a lil mascara.
