I'm having my best hair day so far today, its dance around the house happy kind of good, so I thought it would be a good day to do a 10 week cg before and after. The blonde pictures are from my first couple if days cg, and the brunette are from today.

2C, Medium thickness, Low posity
Recovering from a year of keratin and bleach with CG

Routine

Low Poo, Condition, Leave in, Curl cream, Supersoak, Gel, Diffuse on high heat, with minimal lift to encourage waves and reduce frizz, Dry on cool with nozzle down to smooth hair and finish drying,Shine Serum

Weekly gelatin protien treatments.
I see a big difference in curl definition! looking good! you have beautiful hair!
fine, thin, normal/(low?) porosity. Mod-CG. Usually I can't co-wash more than 1x a week, & sometimes I have to use T-Gel in rotation due to scalp issues.

Co-wash: VO5 Volumizing
Poo: Giovanni 50:50
RO:TN, Nexxus Youth Renewal, Alba Coconut
LI: KCKT
PT: gelatin PT, ION EC
Stylers: Giovanni mousse, TIGI Curls Rock amplifier (a-cone), Curls Rock Strong Hold Mousse
Gels: SCC spray gel

Thank you, I was really shocked to see the change today, there was 6 weeks of no improvement, then suddenly, bam! I can't wait to see what it will be like in a few more months, the bottom is so straight compared to how my roots are coming through

Finally getting that CG look! I've been sulfate/silicone free for about five months now, and I am finally getting consistent, shiny, healthy looking hair.

First pic (green shirt) is after my final sulfate cleanse on November 30, 2012. Let my hair air dry with no styling, no product, etc.

Second pic is from my first week CG. I was co-washing with SN and using Deva Angel. Hadn't really figured out my properties yet.

Third pic (I apologize for creepy face blur) is from sometime in April. The pic was taken after a day at work, plus walking outside in the wind. Yay!

I am only partially CG at this point.... mainly because I only JUST heard about it. I got a rather blunt comment from a friend about my hair one day and how I needed to stop wearing ponytails and hats and how I should let it be curly. I realized that I didn't love my hair, and maybe it WAS time to put a bit more effort into my appearance. So I started just letting my natural curls show and with that started trying different products and techniques I found on youtube mainly. With that I at least went sulfate free, but I am learning a lot more now so I imagine I will get even better results with time. These two after pics, which are some of my best hair days to date, are just from trying a couple of things here in the last week. The first one was after a baso wash. Prior to that I had lost so much curl and couldn't figure out why they were so flat and blah again. And the one from today is after trying acv. I also did my first PT and DT yesterday (though the results yesterday were not so good, things were good today again lol). Anyway, the before shot (from last October) is how it typically looked before going curly again, and honestly I don't have many pics with it even down. I almost always had it in a ponytail and often even a baseball cap. I would put it up wet too and brushed all the time, something I never do now. Can't remember exactly when I started going curly, but wanna say it was mid February of this year.

I have been cg for 1 1/2 year now and i have never loved my naturally curls as i do now. I finally know how to hsndle my curly hair and dont end up flatstraighting it.

I have no "before" pictures really because before going cg i slways straightened my 3c hair...
But here are acouple of "after cg" pictures. What do you think?
