Like your hair better before or after

I voted before. It's not that my hair was so much better, it's just that like others, I didn't worry so much about having "perfect" looking curls. I also had a set routine that I always used and hardly ever deviated from it and didn't spend a fortune trying out new products that hardly ever worked for me. My hair was much more consistant back then even though I had a bit more frizz than now.

This really dawned on me the other day when my husband said to me that he doesn't know why I do all of this crazy stuff to my hair. He said my hair doesn't look any better than it did before I started my quest for better hair. Of course he assured me that my hair doesn't look bad, it never did.
I voted before, for a couple of reasons. One reason is because since my favorite gel was reformulated (almost 6 years ago) I have not been able to find a replacement that I like as much. The second reason is that in the past few years, due to some hormonal issues and a pregnancy, my hair has gotten much thinner and has lost a lot of curl. That being said, I have gotten a ton of great advice from all the curlies here and I feel a lot more normal knowing that I'm not the only one who obsesses about my hair.

I voted before.
I found this site because I went thru some medical problems and lost over half of my hair. Had a reverse mohawk!?!? Or I should say how a man loses his hair??
It hasn't looked the same since all that happened.

But I love the site and everyone who is here!!
And it's not so much that my hair has changed, it's me that's changed!
I learned there's lots of people out there just like me. I learned what to do and not to do to keep my hair healthy and happy. I learned I can use cheap easy to find products.
Most of all, I learned to stop worrying about it! If it a windy humid day and my hair frizzes up, so what. If it's limp the next day, big deal. Maybe the next day it will be a great hair day!
I would give almost anything to have had this website available back when I was young (not possible since the internet was even around yet!).

3B Corkscrew... I'm back on the boards now! Just got The Big Chop on Monday, pics coming soon.
another no difference. Although I have learned about better products, etc, I did love my curls before and they always looked nice. So that part didn't change. I don't obsess over my hair, never did, although I've always taken care of it. I used "bad" products before and my hair looked good. I use "better" products now but my hair doesn't look much different. Cones didn't kill my hair before. I have changed my hairstyle over the years from ideas and things I learned here. I already used a gentle shampoo and great conditioner, but being here gave me a whole new outlook on styling products (although I've yet to find my HG styler!).

The main thing is that I now have a whole website of curly friends that I can share hair and stuff with, that I didn't have before.

No's so much better now! Wow, I actually doubted my hair would ever look this good. It's curlier, healthier and more manageable than it's ever been.
Definitely after. Before I straightened/relaxed my hair everyday for 10 years. Mostly because I was frustrated because I was totally clueless on how to manage/style, care for my curls. After finding, I am a lot more informed and you have all helped me learn how to style/care for my hair. I've learned great techniques, tips, and tricks. I've been wearing it curly ever since and it looks good Now I don't have perfect hair but it works for me.

I'll admit that I've been spending more $$ trying out different products but I am happy with the some of the goodies I've found along the way.
Lotsa 3c curls
