The first picture is me back in high school on one of the rare occasions that I wore my hair down, and the second is my hair now. =)

Really love this thread, great results you guys! Here's mine a month in with CG. Before starting I just thought my hair was no longer curly like when I was younger, but just frizzy and kind of wavy. Turns out, I was so wrong. It is curly allright

Everyone's hair looks so much better curly, one has to wonder why were you "frying" it in the first place?

Definitely does! Even thinking about how much I damaged my hair makes me cringe. I know I'd NEVER use straighteners ever again. If I ever do want my hair straight for a day or so, I'll look for heatless ways to do it.

It's also amazing how much CG has really helped to define everyone's curls and, in some cases, helped people discover just how curly their hair really is! It's amazing what a little knowledge and some product can do!

When I get home I'm going to hunt for some pictures here of my hair before I ever straightened it, when it was straight, while I transitioned and then one now when I'm fully CG. I want to see the difference over the years lol I'll post them on here too!
