I have been doing the cg method for about 2 months now. My hair is so gross. It is weighed down and not as curly as it used to be. I just end up pulling it into a ponytail. I am about to straighten it (I haven't done that in 12 years!!!) or cut it all off.

My pics are here:


BTW, I was letting my hair return to it's natural color (hence the two-toned hair) but have now decided to scratch that!!!!

My questions are:

what hair type am i?
should i cut my hair?
different products/routine?

Right now I CO w/ suave, suave leave in condish, loob, air dry and sometimes a few minutes of diffusing then a tiny bit of tightly wound curls after drying.
