Wow what amazing improvements on everyone! I want to cut about ten inches off my hair, but have tentatively set it for January since i'm so flip-floppy on the idea.

I'm still bummed that the salon didn't do locks of love.
My stylist told me about one girl she had though who cried so much that she couldn't continue the cut. You know your personality and what you should do

I don't have any pic of my curls before CG because I ALWAYS straightened. But the first pic is from when I was about a month into mod CG and the second is from a couple of weeks ago, I'm now full CG.


Fine, very porous 3a
Boycotting all brands owned by L'oreal

Wow MDRB..your hair looks awesome! The curl are so uniform and hang so nicely!!

Before CG:



I can't wait to eventually post my afters. !
2A.B // Medium // High Porosity // iii
From what I can tell, my hair loves protein, humectants, AND emollients. It hates humidity and being touched or flipped.

I often come off as very serious and rude in writing and on forums. Please do not be offended by anything that I have said, as I don't do well with conveying written emotions and my true intent is never malicious.

I was on nc.com since spring, but had a lot of trouble resisting the urge to shampoo. I was so amazed at the transformation of me not brushing my hair, that I didn't think it was going to get any better. But guess what? It DID!!! I'm still experimenting, trying to control the frizz, etc., but I still think these pics show the difference. Thank you to all the curlies on the website who supported me! And if you don't know whether or not you should go CG, do it. You won't regret it.

1st: Before
2nd: After

Great transisitioning,
I quit CG method, I missed my vintage hair and my victory rolls hairdo's,
so I'm back to poo again.

I'm curently using Jane carter solutions, and I have a brand new bottle of Mop Top shampoo, witch is actualy sulphate free

I'm having better hair than I used to have
before I used curly products,
but for me it wasnt that easy doing my styles and doing CG
2c waves curls.

Started the CG routine again!! since Februari 8 2011

I've had curly hair my whole life. From as early as I can remember until my freshmen year of high school my mother would force me to keep my hair straight, and even do the 2 hour process for me 3 times a week. I finally decided one day that it really wasn't worth all the effort. My hair was broken and damaged when I went all curly, but now its silky, bouncy and fun! I wouldn't trade my curly hair for the world!
