Haha your hair looks beautiful in your profile pic

I'm sure it is thick, mine's probably just extreme. I have Italian parents with thick curly hair.

Becca7, HG or not your hair is beautiful! It also looks similar to mine, so I'm really curious - what is your routine?

Wow, thanks! In this picture I was using Suave Everlasting Sunshine conditioner as a co-wash, detangler, and leave in. The blue LA sports gel--scrunched in and plopped for 30 minutes; then diffused dried. That pic was actually the very first time I used a diffuser.

I just bought Tesseme natural Avacado and Aloe and As I am coconut co-wash--my hair looks and feels so soft and shiny, I think those two are for now my hg conditioners.

Oh and I just had layers cut in--by a non-deva stylist--wet cut just like a regular old hair cut. I think my hair is no elasticity, dense, fine-med texture, and low porosity.

Before finding this site: Undefined, frizzy mess. It was in a ponytail almost 24/7. The first pic was on my "best" hairday before CG, second is a "typical" hair day pre CG.





5 mos CG, after DIY haircut:

I feel the time has finally come to show my curls....

The first picture was taken when I was still in curl denial... I blow dried my hair and flat ironed it and it frizzed like hell... Here you don't really see the frizz, because it was just blow dried straight and I hadn't left home yet... once I would step outside it would be frizz city all over...

The next picture (with the striped pjs) was taken one of the first days I started to embrace my curls, but before going CG. It was at the end of february (22nd or so).

The last two pictures were second day hair, march 22nd and 2,5 weeks into CG.

Can you see my hair changing?
Do you notice any change in curl pattern?
I know curl pattern isn't important and so on, but I would just like to know how my hair looks
What curl pattern would I have?

oh and I don't know if you can see it, but I do have root curl... it's less than the curl at the ends, but it does exist...
In the 3rd picture you can't really see it because of the hairthingie I'm wearing

I've been CG Since the end of December 2012 and I've taken quite a few pics as time progressed.

First photo is my first day after my first wash.

Second is 1 month in.

Third is 2 months in(Soon after this pic, I found out how bad Glycerin can be on certain days and was using the same routine despite the weather, haha)

Fourth is 3 months in(When I discovered protein!!!)

Fifth was today, around 4 months.
