That's good to hear. Already my bad hair days are the equivalent of a good hair day pre-CG. xD

My hair looks similar to your picture in the link, only much more frizzier. I wish mine would curl like yours does though. After over 2 years of CG my hair still looks the same as it did before.

I am so very envious of everyone's pictures!

Although, it does make me look at my hair and weep.

Oh Rudee, Rudee, Rudee. Why must you do this to me?
Your hair is gorgeous! What would you consider your hair type now?

Thank you so much!

I thought I was almost a 3b now, but RCC taught me that while my curls lean towards 3b in shape they are 3a in diameter (it made more sense when she explained it).

I think I am a solid 3a with random areas of 3b.

I've only been CG since May 2009. The first pic was taken last year on holiday and the 2nd one just recently. I hope it will only continue to get better

whoops, I just started a thread and I should have just posted here. Sorry!

Styled with 'cones and my favorite non-CG products (I twisted the ringlets in front). It is very dry and crunchy in this picture, though it looks pretty good.


Today (bad office lighting & iphone makes me less attractive, lol):

I used GTTT co-wash, GVP Conditioning Balm conditioner (rinsed out), CJ CCCC raked through from the top, a bit of Recoil raked through from the top and BRHG raked through upside down. I also used my Delman before the product application and that helped the frizz as well. I scrunched it out with a teeny bit of Ojon

It's about 2 months post cut and has grown quite a bit. I have less volume, but more curl (which has never happened). The tiny bit of canopy frizz was caused by me, because I can't believe how soft my hair is!

i tried so many products since beginning the CG method and I think my hair looked as good if not better before all of this (although I can tell it is healthier). Pleas share what products you use because something is working very well!

I went on your fotki site. Thanks for all the product reviews! I am going shopping tomorrow!
