Believe me Crystal, I have my Crap-O hair days, but it does get better and better with time.

Thick, mostly 2c with some 3a; fine texture, medium/high porosity, and a very strange curl & wave pattern.

Started CG (properly) as of 6/31/2009.

Rinse-out | Burt's Bees Super Shiny
Leave-in | Live Clean Intense Moisturizing
Gel | HESMU

Right now: growing hair past shoulder-length, looking to take decent hair picture (my avatar is my first day of CG).
Hey guys!

Here is me before I knew my hair was curly. I always just thought I had frizzy dry looking wavy hair. The pictures is a little blurry but it gives you an idea:

(Sorry...I tried posting it to this thread but it's not working! The picture is on my blog here:

Oh Rudee, Rudee, Rudee. Why must you do this to me?
Your hair is gorgeous! What would you consider your hair type now?
3A, medium fine. Currently avoiding shampoos, 'cones, 'xanes and sulfates. Hair length - a bit beyond BSL. Mostly CG since July 2, 2008.

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.

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!

New here but I think I am:

3a/b with solid 3b at nape
