My hair is currently a elongated 3A but with more curl patern than a 2C (so a 2D if existed...). But that's because my hair is really thick and heavy and it is long (jsut about elbow length). When i cut my hair, I KNOW it will be a 3B-3C combo b/c last time i cut it so short, it just kinda shrunk up! When it was short, i always straightened it because i didnt like it looking that short and curly like that! Looking back at the pictures, there was no clumping going one and it was hard- like too much gel hard. I'm wondering if this time around, knowing what i now know about CG, if i will be getting clumping? Has any of the short 3Bs and 3Cs gotten clumpy soft curls?

In answer to your question about soft clumpy curls, I think moisture will be the key. The more natural products your starting to use (LOL) should really help. My hair is nowhere near as tightly curled as yours, but it's soft and springy all of the time. I suspect that yours will be, too--especially if you stay away from all of the chemicals.

I've been trying to use everything and anything to provide moisture but i still have some patches that seem desert dried. My hair is way curlier than yours... but your curls show off sooo nicely!!! I can't wait for my hair to be as healthy as yours!! I'm also confident that once i cut it all off, it will recover better and faster. Even tho i am already CG, i should consider strictly natural products... thanks so for the suggestions and i look fwd to my haul
