I know that I still have a long way to go (my hair has been ridiculously abused and actually lost most of its natural curl), but 2 months into CG I am loving the results so far. Finally got around to posting pictures - the state of my hair in the "before" is absolutely atrocious!! But it's getting better And it's all thanks to NC.com for introducing me to CG and helping me out with my thousands of stupid questions along the way! Thanks, you guys!

ok so for years - im almost a teen- i have always brushed my hair out alot or had my mom do my hair when i was younger. all i know for a fact is i had definate ringlets. bcuz looking at pics from when i was a baby u can tell in the pics. so the main thing i am wondering is if i do cg will my ringlets start to comeback. cuz for a couple of months- since around mid june or the beginning- i have stopped brushing it out 24/7. and my ringlets are starting to come back a little slow. bacuz i have some tight curls and ringlets starting to form. so the q is "if i do cg will it bring back my ringlets?"
