I have been lurking for a while, this is my first post! I have not always been curly. Almost 8 years ago when I was pregnant with my son, my hair turned curly. I had NO idea how to deal with it, so....
Long story short, I bought the CG book and have read just about EVERY thread, technique, and tip on this website and feel I have turned a corner and now LOVE my hair!

Started CG about 2 weeks ago. Using low-poo a couple times a week, and lots of condish. Threw out every product with silicone (every single one) and have been on a buying spree ever since!

Anyway, I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all of you who have posted your experiences and techniques. I would have NEVER known about the ice queen method, not to use a towel, twist and skip, scrunch in product, how to use condish, and on and on!

Sometimes I imagine what would happen if my hair suddenly turned straight. I'd be very sad of course, but I don't think I'd need to go online, read up and go on a straight-haired girl journey. I'd probably just buy a bottle of shampoo and a hairbrush. This is why curly hair is funner. It's definitely more work, but it's fun!

I always had somewhat wavy hair, but it was easy to straighten. So when I say it "wasn't curly"...I should have added, it "wasn't straight" either, lol! It just turned REALLY curly since pregnancy.
