I love it! I use it as both a RO and a LI. I only use GVP and gel, no other stylers, BUT my hair is thick and coarse and sucks up moisture so I can see how it might weigh some people's hair down. ...

The bottom of the back, if that's what you mean, is kind of u-shaped. But I can't say it's from this cut, because only the top layers were cut. The sides and bottom didn't reach the spot I chose to...

I cut my own hair!

I have been growing my hair out for over 10 months. Lately, it seemed like my 3b hair was looking more 3a-ish and flat on top. The weight of the curls was weighing them down. Time for a haircut! ...

I originally bought a small and a medium, but exchanged the medium for another small because it was too big for 1/2 up and my hair wasn't (and barely is now) long enough for a pony. My daughter has...

I have 2 flexi-8's. I love one of them and wear it all of the time and the other I never wear. The one with all metal beads lays nicer in my hair. I use it for 1/2 ups either on top or in the back...

I use this and have used it for years...even before going CG. I like it so much better than LALSG, which I find to be kind of sticky. I initially read the ingredients and found it to be CG, but...

I have to agree about the hormones. I definitely think that is what we are dealing with. I think my daughter's hair is changing from straight(ish) to curly. With the curly hair in our family,...

Thank you. I'm going to see if I can pick up the AIF gel and get her to try just a little. I don't want to start bombarding her with different products again, but I do believe it's all in the gel. ...

I left her alone about her hair for a while, but I think she does want help. She tends to just put it up a lot.

This is as formal as I have been able to get mine. Loose half-up on top in a pretty flexi-8 with some curls pulled out in front. If your hair is longer than mine, you can probably do something a...
