Late 2006; pre CG, after brushing my hair out (eeek)

The height of my flat iron love affair, July 2009. Sure, it was long and straight, but the process was damaging and time consuming.

Today. Never mind my crazy face my hair is still a work in progress (I'm working on growing it out) but I feel like I've come a long way.

Everyone's hair looks so lovely! I've found this thread to be really inspiring.
