Should I try CG?
 
Hey y'all! I'm a lurker who has decided that it is time to ask for hair advice. My hair is not curling the way it used to (moved from TX to CA for college). Pictures and my routine are in the newbie thread:

Should I go CG? I'm not sure what to do for my hair anymore. Any advice would be truly appreciated.

CG is one of the best decisions im made. My hair is looking wonderful, plus its cheaper to do then taking torturing your hair. I highly suggest it.

I love your hair in your avatar! Very pretty. And curls really suit you.

Have you tried plopping and using CG products? Doing so may be enough to bring back the curl.

HTH, and welcome!

Going CG took me from poufy kinda wavy-ish but mostly straight hair to mostly ringlets. Best thing I've done for my hair.

I like your hair curly much better. Definitely go CG...just look at the before and after thread if you need inspiration. I don't know if you've read these or not but there is a ton of good info on curls and CG.

Laura Lee's guide to going CG

It seems you already use some CG products so it wouldn't be that hard to go all the way.

Yes.

I agree with everyone else. Your curly pic seems to suit your face better. CG has also helped me achieve real curls where I used to have limp, almost straight waves.
Go for it!!!:blob8: There are so many people here willing to help!

Thanks everyone. I have read those links before, although I wasn't seriously considering going CG at the time. Other than my beloved shampoo and probably my equally beloved Aphogee Keratin Treatment, would I need to give up any of these products?

Shampoo (2x a week) with Nature's Gate Jojoba Oil
Condition (daily) with Nature's Gate Jojoba Oil; Giovanni Direct Leave-In
Style with Ojon Conditioning Finishing Finishing Paste (penny sized amount), No Frizz (five sprays), and Paul Mitchell Round Trip (1/2 pump)

I'm pretty sure my hair is too short to plop. I might try it after my whiplash pain fades though. Also, can anyone recommend any new CG-friendly products I should try? I know there are a lot of favorites on the boards (KBB, BSHR, Boots, KKCC, etc.), but I'm not sure which combination would be best for my extremely fine, 3a hair that--at its very curliest--forms loose ringlets. I'm willing to replace most everything I use, and price isn't too much of an issue.

You might want to call a bank for current interest rates. That's a loaded question on this board full of PJ's. :lol:

My hair is quite fine and my products are listed in my signature. The only one I know for sure that you can keep is the Giovanni leave-in. I think some of the others are ok too but I never used them so I'm not 100%.

I also have very fine hair. It really likes the more natural products. I went from being a winter wavy/3a summer to a winter of the curls in my signature picture as a result. The turning point was starting to use soap bars to cleanse after 6 months of cowashing. It tightened curls and added volume. My most commonly used products, like the others, are in my signature.
