2.5 weeks into the process and I have my first GREAT hair day!

Going CG was hard for me because I have always liked my curly hair and used 'cones to keep it under control. I loved how soft people's hair looked in the 3b picture thread and so I decided to give it a go. I had been struggling with a lot of canopy frizz, but this weekend I did an Ojon treatment and my hair LOVED it.

So here is progress:

My last cut, with only the salon product (they never use enough)

Styled with 'cones and my favorite non-CG products (I twisted the ringlets in front). It is very dry and crunchy in this picture, though it looks pretty good.

Today (bad office lighting & iphone makes me less attractive, lol):

I used GTTT co-wash, GVP Conditioning Balm conditioner (rinsed out), CJ CCCC raked through from the top, a bit of Recoil raked through from the top and BRHG raked through upside down. I also used my Delman before the product application and that helped the frizz as well. I scrunched it out with a teeny bit of Ojon

It's about 2 months post cut and has grown quite a bit. I have less volume, but more curl (which has never happened). The tiny bit of canopy frizz was caused by me, because I can't believe how soft my hair is!
