Mysteryflavored is famous for her "How I apply KCCC" video . My guess is that in this pic she's using Kinky Curly Curling Custard layered with Biosilk Hard Rock Gelee. If you search her name in the google function, I'm sure you'll eventually find her video!

Here's mine - pre-CG, back in 2005. I was a devotee to Infusium 23 and the Frizz Ease serums.

This is last month, almost 4 years later (2 years post-CG):



Much prefer the latter!

You need to tell me what your makeup routine is! Also, gorgeous curls

I'm so impressed with the transformations, everybody. I really think I'm going to go CG.

banana_babe - what a difference, you have CURLS!!!!

msgiblet - only air dry. My kids would have a spasm if I took time for MYSELF and used a diffuser.

lucky charm -- man, I hope my fluffy waves turn into YOUR hair lol. Seriously perfect.

wookiemouse -- beautiful hair! I know what you mean about children letting you diffuse. I swear I have to have a talk with mine before I go use the hairdyer. He's almost 5 and he still has to check on me 3 times (you know or ask me to play with him, or tell me he's hungry) during the 15 minutes it takes for me to diffuse. I'm finally at the point where I can say, "honey, mommy is using the hair dryer, you know the rules, you have to wait until mommy is done!"

First picture is from April, pre-CG. My hair was blown out straight, with a heavy coating of Rusk Str8. Dull, dry, and frizzy. I did not realize fully that I was a wavy, just thought my hair was totally unmanageable.

Second and third pictures were taken this morning after 4 months of CG.
