And the best hair day ever. Look at all those coils! I've never been able to replicate it
Very pretty!

I notice you were by the ocean on that "best hair day ever"... Have you tried products with mag sulfate? Or even a watery epsom spray?? Just a thought!!

I've been using the regular Deva One condition as my leave-in, but I just got the Darcy Botanicals pumpkin seed conditioner, and since Deva was fine but nothing extraordinary, I'm going to see how it goes with that. I've never had a separate leave-in, I just use a little more of whatever conditioner I'm using at the time.
I use KCCC, and on the couple of spots that I know always frizz more than form ringlets, I give one or two spritzes of Garnier Fructis Curly Spray Gel and scrunch in.

The major thing for me is finger curling. On days when I don't need to look amazing, I just form one or two right near my face and let the rest go. But on days when I want to look extra polished, after scrunching and product application, I twirl a lot of the curls on the top of my head around my finger so they go in the same direction the whole way down. Then I diffuse without moving the hair for about 4 minutes, just to set them drying in the pattern I made. The rest is air drying.

The Big Sexy Hair mousse is also amazing for multiple day hold, but for when I don't want it so stiff I think I'm going to try Curl Keeper to see if it can keep my curls from one day to the next.

Hope this helps!

Oh shut UP!!! YOUR hair is MY goal.
I'm pretty late to this but I had insane frizzy curly hair in middle school which I thought was from using mousse so by the time I started high school I started the keratins and what not. Now my hair is growing out pretty wavy compared to before and your hair is my DREAM hair. I love my bangs and I can't seem to find people who have them with curls. Any tips on what to use? I'm such a hair noob now..

wow, this thread should be called "hope". ^^
Everyone looks so wonderful!
I had a girl sitting in front of me back in highschool with healthy shiny curls like these and I never found out how the hell she does it.

A bit of offtopic;
About this soda/vinegar method - is soda here instead of a shampoo or...?

Also, do I need to wash my hair with a SLS shampoo for the last time, or can it be SLS free? I'm so angry at that component I don't ever want to use it again.

Hi!

I'm posting for the first time on this board and want to thank all of you for huge inspiration! I've been doing a modified CG for 2 months now and the transformation is amazing. Before I used to only shampoo my hair (no conditioner, nothing) and tie it back while wet. I brushed when dry and then wondered about the massive amount of frizz and crazy no-shape hair.

Here are my before and after (not so good quality) pics. I noticed that like many others I couldn't find one single before photo of me without the hair tied back. Now, with the fairly recent operation letting-the-curls-free i'm more than willing to let my hair down.

The first one is my before picture, the 2nd after 1 week of mod CG. The last 3 pics are 2 months into the mod CG and after a trim + layers.
