Hi everyone! I've been reading here for a few months now and after seeing amazing photos and good advice all over the boards, I finally decided to register. You all are so fantastic and supportive!

I have 3b curls, I'm 42 years old and I've loved my curls since I figured out how to take care of them when I was in college. I just recently started the CG method after chopping off most of my just below shoulder length hair. I thought it needed a drastic cut to bring back my coils, when it just needed no more silicone/sulfates and lots more moisture! Ah well, lesson learned. I'm growing it out again and loving how healthy it looks.

BTW, my 15 year old daughter is a curly girl, too. She's 2c/3a with gorgeous MBL locks.
3a, low to medium porosity,
CG since Dec 2012

Massive chop Nov 2012 and I'm missing my long curls! Wish I'd found the CG method before I cut it all off. Growing it out again .
