wow, everyone's hair looks amazing! im pretty new to CG, and i think my hair is somewhere between 2a-2b. but i have a question for everyone that has experience. after i cowash, if i put mousse in my hair it will be somewhat curly, but if i just put a leave-in and no mousse, it wont curl at all. will this get better in time, or do you think my hair will always be just slightly wavy/curly?

You are going to have to use some products to get more defined waves/curls. If in a rush, pixie diffuse (diffuse after scrunching hair up towards head with your hand. I turn on blow dryer after placing the diffuser on your hair and then turning off to avoid frizz). It took me a few weeks for my hair to recover from all the years of straightening. A good cut doesn't hurt either.

I just started researching about curly hair yesterday. For twenty three years of my life I lived with dry frizzy hair n used to b jealous of all curly girls. Never realised that my hair were actually curls which just needed care. Got rebonding done twice. Last time was 4 years ago. Now my curls r back and they look better. Can anyone guide me a little as to what cowashing is. I have never been able to find any good sulphate n silicone free shampoo or conditioner here in India. U girls r so lucky to have such amazing products. By the way I m type 3B, medium width, low porosity and high density.

If you see a conditioner you like there, you can post the ingredients on here and someone should be able to tell you if it's ok. I think some of the pomade type things there were also ok, but I don't remember what I looked at.

CG since 12/28/12!!

I created a potion yesterday in a spray bottle that I purchased from Sally's.

Filled to about 1/2 with water.
10 droplets of Neutral Protein Filler
6 droplets of Coconut Oil
10 Sprays of Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil.

I wasn't sure if this concoction would work or not so it was a test run. Here are my results.

First photo is day 1. The rest of from today.

Today's Routine
-As I Am Co-wash
-GVP Balm let in for about 3-5 min
-KCKT leave-in on soaking wet hair
-Separated my hair into a top and bottom layer and added a few sprays on my potion on each then combed.
-Scrunched soaking wet hair with microfiber towel
-SM Y&B thickening spray - 2 sprays on hands and scrunched.
-Eden Body works coconut shea curl defining creme - covered 2 fingers with half a dime size and scrunched it into hair.
-Then used KCCC - quarter size. Dabbed hair with microfiber cloth one last time.
-Then diffused until 80% dry.
-After my hair is dry, I coat my hair with a small amount of Coconut Oil and scrunch out the crunch.

I'll have to try out this routine again to see if it continues to perform. I have yet to find a good Summer routine(I live in Humid Austin Texas) - Hoping this is the one!
