Default Hi Hi!!! New here, so glad I found this site!!!!

Hi everyone. It is exactly 2 days since I embraced my curls. I've (happily) said goodbye to the 20 minutes of blowdrying and ten minutes of flat ironing and 15 minutes of sponge curlers (needed the curlers to put back some ooooomph into my ironed hair!).

Satuday I had a hair cut and when my stylist said she cut it for me to wear curly when I wanted, I was thrilled but scared too. I blew it straight Sunday and promptly went back in the shower and wet it down again. I was shocked that it looked so much better even though I ended up with some frizz. Just hard to get used to it as I also had a colour treatment and went from blonde to a medium auburn with a few strategically placed carmel highlights. I look like a COMPLETELY different woman now.

My 3b coarse hair came out perfectly today with no frizz and nicely defined curls! Of course I went out and bought products before really reading about what works and what doesn't and I bought Frizz Ease and Dream Curls by Frieda (not CG friendly, I know).

So the dilemma is what to buy next. And time will tell. But I am soooo thrilled that my curls already look a kazillion times better than when I spent fruitless time straightening my hair.

Soooo glad to be here!!!!!!!

Welcome!

I would suggest checking out the 3b forum for suggestions on what products to use. Some are in to CG here while others like to shampoo. What ever works best for them.

I was lucky enough to have this website recommended to me by a friend. I actually first found it a year ago but it was only last week that I took the curly headed plunge.

No turning back now!!!!
