Default Another newbie :)

Just popping in to say hi!

I'm Marianne, from central Scotland - the windiest place on earth and hence the worst place to have curly hair!

Glad to have found this site, I've been straightening my hair for years but now that my GHD's have broke I've decided to embrace the curls and I'm even starting to get used to them. I just need some advice as I go as I'm a complete beginner at dealing with the frizz!

Hi Marianne, I want to welcome you and wish you much success with your hair, there's great freedom in embracing our curls, especially when we can get them to behave... at least most of the time, lol!

My advice to you is to try the "CG" method, IMO it's the gentlest there is, I've been very happy with it since I discovered it 12 years ago, so I can't say enough good things about it, in fact, if I were in NY I'd camp outside the Devachan salon until they hired me there, lol!
