I live in Alberta, Canada, which isn't a particularly hot place, but extremely dry, since all the moisture from the sea is lost over the mountains. Products like HE Hello Hydration sell extremely well here, lol. In fact, I was using Hydralicious myself before going CG.

I used to think that "damp" climates were better for my hair, but I've since recognized that with proper moisture, my hair can be healthy and look fine in a dry environment. Besides, it went VERY frizzy in Hawaii and Vancouver Island.

The problem I've had is not recognizing what my hair needs, so it's been limp and exhausted for the longest time. Now that I'm using things like BB More Moisture and giving my hair a lot of protein, it's getting much better, and with a lot of volume!
Thick, mostly 2c with some 3a; fine texture, medium/high porosity, and a very strange curl & wave pattern.

Started CG (properly) as of 6/31/2009.

Cowash | Suave Naturals Ocean Breeze or Juicy Green Apple
Rinse-out | Burt's Bees Super Shiny
Leave-in | Live Clean Intense Moisturizing

Right now: growing hair past shoulder-length, looking to take decent hair picture (my avatar is my first day of CG).
