Just got 2.5" damage cut off to prepare my hair for being grown out. I am currently at 3 months CG and my hair feels and looks better than ever!



And then this is a totally random photo, but my sister was taking pictures for my portfolio (I am a second year fashion design student) and I got bored and twirled around and she snapped a photo, but conveniently my hair looks great so I thought I'd share that too.



Everybody is looking beautiful!!

Aussie Aussome Volume shampoo
Coconut oil + Aussie AV shampoo
Eufora aloe vera leave-in conditioner
LA Looks Sport Gel

I use the super-soaker method

I visied this board a year ago and then had another baby ( this one with curly hair!) and now I'm back. I am looking to change my routine - my hair is softer and healthier, but it still is not as curly as I would like it and the top is still flat. Not sure what to do about it. I have to use cheap products, so if anyone has recommendations, let me know. These pics were taken a few weeks ago.

My usual routine is wash with burts bees super shiny, the condition with that pink loreal conditioner for curly hair? and leave in Say Yes to Cucumbers. Then I usually use LA Looks clear gel and sometimes Aveda be curly ( got it as a present) cream and gel.. scrunch with a t-shirt and air dry.



3a?; very fine
Started CG 4.1.2010
Growing it out; would love waist length, but my hair grows slowly.

Looks good though Kali! I think we have similar hair, only my wave/curl pattern is a little weaker than yours I think. Maybe using a diffuser upside down? I don't have one so I haven't tried. Also, you might try plopping, and maybe use the Icequeen method in the shower.

Still a little frizz here and there, but I went from a light wavy to definite curls.

I wonder, will it continue to curl more? I like the curls I have, don't need much more...

After 4 days of GC, trying plopping some then diffusing pixiegirl style with extra gel in the middle of diffusing. I like it, just maybe want it a little less wet looking. It was windy out today.

From the back. Some hair out of place from wind.

I've been CG for a little over 6 months. I just recently started using the DevaCurl products (mainly One Condition and Arc Angell), but they're really expensive for me being a poor college student and all. Before Deva I used Suave Coconut conditioner as a co-wash, I used Aubrey Organiics Honeysuckle Rose Moisturizing Conditioner as a detangler/rinse out, I used Giovanni Direct Leave-in and L.A. Looks Sport gel. Hope that helps!
