Default New curly!

Hi everyone!
How on earth have I missed this site all this time? 29 years Irish girl here with mid length naturally auburn/red curly hair.... 3b I think? I'm going to try and post some pics.
I must admit... I hate hate hate visiting the hairdressers and under extreme duress i will go once a year (to my best friend who nearly has to drag me in by the hair lol!). So therefore my hair is unruly and needs a more regular cut.

I use whatever shampoo/conditioner is around. Then a mousse and just let my hair air dry. I only wash my hair once/twice a week and in between I use aussie hair care miracle insurance leave in conditioner which smells like bubblegum and I love it!

I rarey straighten my hair (bought my ghd for the first time last year lol!) but I love it when it's straight. my friends and family have mixed views!

After reading up on here I just ordered bed head sulphate free shampoo, conditioner and serum so thank you for the advice!!!!

Hi Curls007 Welcome! There are some very well-known and well-liked redheads on this board. I always wish I had your color hair.

Enjoy the website and I'll look for your posts.

Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker

007 I love your red color. If I could have any other color. I'd be a ginger in a heart beat. I also adore your freckles.

started CG on 6/25/12.
  • 2c with a strait underneath
  • normal elasticity on top, none on the underneath
  • Fine side of Normal
  • Thick hair
  • Poriosity is a mystery. I think its all over the place.

I'm just like you with the hairdresser. I recently chopped off 9 inches but before that, I hadn't been in 2 years. before THAT, I hadn't been in 3. Oops... lol. I'm trying to take a better approach this time around and get frequent trims - I'm currently on the hunt for a curly stylist.

Hope you enjoy the boards - there is loads of information here.

BTW - I absolutely LOVE your hair color. So jealous!
