I go every 2 months or so and pluck in-between if I need to. I do have very light eyebrows, though, so I can get away with longer stretches between appointments.

I have to ask this because I didn't know I was supposed to do this when I first discovered CG. I kept wondering why a bunch of curlies were wandering around with crispy hair...

I just bought my first Deva product (Light Defining Gel) two months ago, despite discovering CG six years ago! It's been shelved for the winter, but it worked great until the cool weather set in.

I use Andalou Naturals Age-Defying shampoo. It is sulfate free, but I find it cleanses well without being drying. I will occasionally use a sulfate shampoo, but I don't use it often because too much...

I don't use the Nounou, but their Love Smoothing (the pink one) conditioner is my winter HG. No other conditioner comes close to doing for my hair what that one does. It's not CG, though.

Using dew points to try to predict how my hair would behave was a waste of time for me. I look at the temp and the humidity.

Many of us have to use different products when the seasons change. I don't know where you're located, but now that it's fall in WI, I can't use the same products I did in the summer.

I wash every other night and let it air dry. Going to bed with wet hair is guaranteed ridiculous hair in the morning. I wash my hair as soon as I get home from work. It's almost always dry by the...

I don't see the point of cutting curl by curl, either, unless you have a strong curl pattern. My stylist owns the salon I went to, and she trained in New York for the Deva method. Some of her own...

The only times my hair has had an adjustment period is when the cut hasn't been very good. That's just my experience, though. I'm not saying that everyone who has an adjustment period got a bad cut....

I've tried:
Ouidad Climate Control and the gel cream. The CC was like a serum and made my hair flat and stringy. It did nothing for me for frizz. The gel cream did nothing at all.

Did something happen that caused you to try a cut with someone else? I think I remember you raving about how good he was in the past, so I was wondering why you went to someone else. :)
