Wow, such amazing after-pictures, everyone!! Beautiful

Before:


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!)

Before CG: I would straighten pretty much all the time, and when I didn't, it looked like this. I never wore my hair curly outside.

One day into curly girl method.

2 months in, and loving my waves!

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.

Haha, same! Well, my coworkers all thought I got a perm.

And I love your curls! They're so even and smooth!

Left: When I tried to go "CG" before, but didn't know what the heck I was doing and eventually gave up, because my hair turned to straw.

Middle: I cut my damaged ends off and started straightening again.

Right: I got sick of straightening again and this time doing it properly. This is sometime in January this year.

I totally agree! Everyone looks so much happier and prettier once they have come to terms with what they've got instead of struggling to be something else

This was mid 2013 I think, my hair was just frizz with random stringy curls & waves that I had in a puff. I had really bad heat damage, my hair was basically wavy from wearing straight hair all the time. 1st pic was from using cg for like a month or so






This is from like January/February 2014

I've read every reply over the last month and a half. I started my CG routine about a month ago. I was really discourage that my curls were not getting any better. Just last night, I realized, my leave in conditioner had cones I need to read better. I washed my hair with sulfate shampoo to get rid of all that build up and conditioned with Sauve Coconut, rinsed with cold water, then sealed with Argan Oil, scrunched in LA Looks Sports gel and plopped for 15 minutes while I put on my makeup. I then scrunched in some Shea Moisture Smoothie and diffused until about 80% dry. I finally have a good hair day since starting this method!! I will post a before and after about a month into it the right way with out cones!! Thank you to everyone who has posted their pictures!!

this is after one month into cg, still searching for the perfect routine and products, but they have changed a lot, i do now like my curls after years of hating and straightning the hair.

before: (this is about 5 years old, i didn`t have any good pics with curls, because i wore my hair always straight)



and this is now: (from the second cg-wash to now)

I should say that I'd straightened my hair for 10yrs. I'd actually forgotten how to style my curly hair. It was like starting from scratch, I had to completely re-educate myself (with the help of this forum)!!
