I feel like this is an important thread to keep going because it really shows the beauty of curls and how amazing they can look when treated properly. I myself like my hair but if it can be more defined and shinier I'm going for it!
You can always use a sulfate free shampoo to clarify too as long as it has one of those coco-betaines in it. Butttt, some of those can be as drying to your hair as sulfate ones. Just a thought

Thanks! Yeah, I used to get my hair chemically straightened so in the before pic it was still damaged... so glad I discovered the CG method!

I did the chemical straightening too. I hear ya, I had no idea I had so much curl & its still growing the chemicals out & getting curlier every month or so. CG is wonderful! It gives us who fought our hair for years a method to care for it & therefore accept it much easier to accept it when it behaves!

Thanks! I guess I can't totally thank CG for that since my products weren't all 100% cg, but just learning to care for my hair better has made so much of a difference, I actually love my curls. That day I used KCKT, curls rock amplifier, & SCC spray gel. The last pic is from the end of the day, it held up all day in heat/humidity & just would not frizz.
