Continuing the CG method. Here is a pic of my curls a couple hours after co-washing, detangling & using the tightly curly separation method along with my CG routine:

You look fantastic! I wish I had your hair

What a difference! I'm trying to document my journey on my blog, and while I am seeing results, it's nothing compared to your results! Great!

I have loved seeing the transition in your photos. You hair is so cute!! I love those curls and coils.

I just started CG this week and I'm already loving it. I look forward to a healthier, less frizzy head of hair. I'm documenting my journey on my blog.

Blog is at wifetalks.com/tag/curly-girl/

I can't promise it will be updated often though. I have a bad habit of forgetting to blog. I'm trying though.

What a success story! I looked at all the posts & pictures from beginning to end and there is such a noticeable difference in your hair. Truly beautiful, girl!

@tots5678 I have a similar curl pattern as you (I am not sure if your strands are as terribly fine as mine are) I want to know what is your experience with single strand knots at this point in time? Once I had reached your length now (barely ponytail) I could no longer do any sort of wash and go without getting horrible ends.

@CandiiMamii

Hi, I do get single strand knots every now and then. I usually try & finger detangle them out on wet & conditioned hair. If I can't get them out I go ahead and snip them with my hair scissors.

Just read this whole thread - tots, your hair is a.maze.ing!
Love the transformation, it's so heartening to see someone's hair go from good to great to unbelievably wonderful.
