Post your before & After CG pics

Like Tree863Likes

I did before and after pics a few months ago, but I was digging through some older pics and found one that really showed how far I've come. It's not from immediately before I started CG. It's from about four and a half years ago, when my hair was at its most damaged. It was looking at this picture that prompted me to cut my hair to a lip-length curly bob and fire my stylist.
The after picture is from about three weeks ago (7 months modified CG).

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

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!

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)
