Yay, this is fun! All of you have such beautiful hair. Here's mine straight:



And curly:



The above photo is about two months old. My curls have tightened up a lot - went from 2c to 3b in some areas! - since it was taken. I attribute it to summer weather and my prolonged commitment to the CG routine (caved in and shampooed last week, though , I had to start over and I'm still recovering from the damage). So I don't have any really recent photos of my hair. :-/
CG since 07/26/09






First time i've ever straightened my hair!! It was fun...I actually miss the straight hair..it was soooo much easier to manage! lol
CG Since Nov 2008 and Currently using:
Co-wash: VO5 strawberries and cream
Conditioner: Suave Fresh Mountain Strawberries
Gel:Fantasia IC Gel w/ Sparklites(only use when pulling my hair back in slick ponytail)

Hmm, I noticed that everyone looks older with straight hair

Here's mine! They are at least a year old. But, they are cut with the same hairstyle. My bangs have since grown out and I think it may be a inch or two shorter now!

Okay, I'll play.

Straight (in January):


Curly (end of April - around day 20 of CG):


I'm still experimenting with different products, so I still have a lot of frizz.
Grew up thinking I had straight hair that was just messy and in need of a good brushing.
Discovered my true texture and transitioned to CG in April 2009.
Now I'm a 2c/3a using the DevaCurl line, and I'm finally developing a deeper love for my hair!
I'll play. First two are straight hair for pictures that I had taken. Third is curly pre-CG and last one is about a month Mod-CG. Sorry it isn't very good.




3b/3c very thick and porous mod-CG since 03/09



These are a couple of years old, but they are from around the same time. I simply haven't straightened my hair in a long time! Also, my hair is much longer now. First, the straight:



And now, the curly!!!



I'd say I look like I'm having a lot more fun in the curly photo.
2c/3a/3b curls, waist length
Cleansers:Body Shop Honey 'Poo, V05 Co
Conditioners:GVPCB/AOHR/HSHPumpkin

DT/Treats:Aphogee Protein Treat/GVP K-Pak/EVOO
Leave-ins/Stylers:KCKT/KCCC/KCGP
