CG Before and After - PICTURES!

I've been lurking around here for a lo-o-o-ong time without posting much, although meaning to make a huge "hair porn" post to show what a difference switching to no-poo has made for me.

Here's something to start off with: a GREAT (and entirely unplanned) pair of before and after pictures.

More information to follow, but for now - enjoy!





Note: Both pictures wash-and-wear with no products.
Your hair looks great! You should add these pictures to our before and after thread. Post your before & After CG pics
You don't use any styling products?! Man, you're lucky! Your hair looks so great, I can see why you don't bother using them. Must save you a ton of money!
3a locks!
Daily Products!: Suave Naturals Coconut, Jessicurl WDT, MOP-C, Biotera Curl Creme, & LA Looks Sports Gel!
^^^Proof that you can be CG without spending tons of money! =) ^^^

You have beautiful hair...and what an awesome colour! I can't believe you don't need to use any products. I didn't think that was possible! You're so lucky!

Wow, your hair has improved so much!
How long have you been CG?
And what conditioners/routine do you do?

Calamity, what do you use in your hair? It's absolutely breathtaking!
your hair looks great no-poo... I wish I could say that I've had good results but I have not. Can you describe what you are doing (i.e. cowash, sulfate-free shampoo)?
curi, how long have you been doing CG for? It's been about 6 weeks for me, and I haven't had great results either.
Thanks for all the positive responses, and apologies for the late reply!

My routine is super simple: ACV rinse followed with Almond & Honey All-Natural Conditioner from Sally Beauty. Let it air dry, and I get great two-three-four day hair out of it!

I had a HORRIBLE time with my hair before going no-poo: I would have never believed this wash-and-go lifestyle was possible for me!
Wow, what a simple routine! Is it ok to do an acv rinse so frequently? My hair looks best after I do them, but I wasn't sure if vinegar could be bad for hair long-term.
Your curls look amazing! Good job and congrats on your results!

I would kill to have a no product routine! That would be awesome! Maybe I'll experiment and see what happens. I have a feeling it won't turn out so great, but it's worth a shot.

I think the solution is clear, I'm just addicted to the way it makes my hair feel!

Using VO5 Moisture Milks Passion Fruit Smoothie for co-washing and conditioning.

Using Boots curl creme

Considering going Mod-CG and using H&S once a week to prevent build up, flakes and other nastys.

I cannot wait for my hair to get back to "normal"! After a few years of abuse (lifeguarding in my early 20s and too much "poo") I am getting back to curly. Everyone looks amazing, and ya'll are such a good support group. Can't wait to post my own before and after pics. Jess
