Wow, such amazing after-pictures, everyone!! Beautiful
At this stage I didn't even know my hair was curly, since it always was straight/slightly wavy when I was little. Then it became frizzy and unruly and I just tried to brush it straight and it turned out like in the picture... But then I started CG and realised my hair actually was quite curly
November 2012 (6 months CG):
Yesterday (almost 2 years CG)! Neither the best quality nor the best hair day, but wow it has grown really long I just realised!
(and no... I haven't yet figured out how to make thumbnails.. sorry!)

Here is my before, so frizzy and unruly and right after a cut too! I tried to chop off as much of my dyed length as I could and told my stylist I wanted something that would work with my natural texture for the first time ever.
I was pretty disappointed and frustrated that my 'natural' hair just didn't seem to want to agree with me, and remembered why I had been straightening it for so many year... and then I found this place!
One month and a bit into a modified CG routine and after learning about the curly hair basics I never knew... like not rubbing my hair with a normal towel, applying product when dry and a billion other small things that I wish someone had told me years ago.
All of my friends thought I got a perm when I wore it 'natural' for the first time, they've only ever seen me with straight hair or a big frizzy poof.

You have the kind of hair celebrities pay a LOOOOOT of money to fake! I hope mine looks anywhere near as good as yours when it grows out!
