The after picture is from about three weeks ago (7 months modified CG).
Corrina - Amazing. Your before pic looks alot like how my own hair looked before going CG, so you give me hope!

Oh you guys, thanks so much I have to be honest, at first I was a little frustrated when I started CG. I guess I was expecting more immediate, noticeable results. But it took a lot of trying different things (and quite a few bad results!) to finally figure it out. But it is so worth it!

What I used to think was a good hair day (pre-CG):


What I think a good hair day is now (7 or 8 months in):

Default I am liking this CG Method so far....

This is pictures of the day I decided to do it and a week after I started!
I have to admit to trying to embrace my curls prior to starting this method but without knowing what to avoid product wise. So I'd have to say that not having flat ironed my hair for a few months was to my advantage. I also got great product ideas on here during my research and I am sure that helped me alot too.

I didn't color it, that is just flash I guess. ;o)
