So I have been trying CG since the beginning of the summer. Changed most of my products and I've been happy with how healthy if feels and looks. However I've had a problem with the heavier parted side of my hair lying flat against my face. I decided To stray away from my stylist who I love as a person, but she jut doesn't have curly hair so it's hard for her to understand my problems! I got a deva styled cut. Not 100% deva cut (because sometimes I like the option of going straight) but this new stylist understood my problem and I'm so happy with what she did. So I have some Before, during, and after (which is after the cut) I still haven't styled myself yet so we shall see!

The curls were bigger. I hope I can achieve similar results. My stylist gave me the deva clips she used on me too. They are everything I've been searching for!

This seems fun!

I actually began going back to natural in Feb. 2012. Since it was tough transitioning in the beginning, I didn't take a lot of pics. However, the first one is from June 2012 and one can really see the lack of curl/definition.

Now, I will jump pretty much a year from there to the end of May 2013. This was one of the best hair days of my life. It was about 95 degrees out, don't know the dew points unfortunately. I just added gel nothing else. I actually added 3 different types of gel: SM soufflé, GF Go clean gel, and KCCC. Don't know how that all worked out but it did. If only I can get my hair to the state it was in this day that would be great. But it's snowing out now so it probably won't happen

Sometimes I get carried away and manipulate him too much. He tells me he's fine on his own but I never listen. I wash him less now and all in all we're happy.

Thanks guys!

Yeah, I splurged and decided since I haven't bought anything new in a while, that I would try the whole line.

Used the Weekly therapy conditioner and left it in for about 25 minutes.
Then Shampoo'd and Conditioned
Used HealthySexyHair Leave in conditioner
Used some KCCC and let my hair air dry(My hair has been too short to plop so I haven't bothered to in a while.)

Then scrunched out the crunch with the SM Tahitian Glosser.

So far I'm loving the results! 2nd day hair is pretty good too!
