Jeepy's CG and grey hair progress.

Like Tree61Likes

I kept my hair pics on a free online site for many years so they could be shared here with my NC folks but they no longer offer it for free. So I thought I would just make a thread here, which makes it easy to share with you all and easy for me to keep track of my own progress.

Here is 2005, 2006

I agree with rbb, your hair is amazing. Since you cut it yourself, how do you get good long layers? I want to continue to cut my own but I'm having trouble figuring out how to cut the back layers like the sides.

Med/high porosity; color treated; med density 2c/3a.

Summer: (high dew point) co-wash & leave-in Matrix Biolage Cleansing Conditioner for Curly Hair. Ouidad Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel. Spring and Fall: (perfect dew point) co-wash & leave-in Curl Junkie Repair Me! or CJ BeautiCurls Strengthening Hair Conditioner; followed by CJ Pattern Pusha & Curl Queen. Winter: (low dew point) add in CJ Coffee-Coco Curl Creme Lite.
Thanks!!
I don't always get it just right, believe me. Sometimes I cut the top layers too much and my hair looks stringy, sometimes it's not even, sometimes it's too triangley. I just picked better photos to show here. : )

I still cut my hair 1 of 2 ways.
If I'm being lazy and just want a bit of a trim I put my hair on top of my head in a high pony tail. Then I hold the ends all together and just snip right across. I will do it this way with my hair wet or dry.
If I'm not being lazy and want all over layers I leave my hair down and trim each clump (per the Curly Girl method). I do this with my hair dry, but freshly washed so the curls aren't stretched out or messed up from sleeping or wearing in a pony.

Agree with BeinDeb - you are an inspiration! I wish my hair was still thick enough to be able to have it long like yours, it's lovely. It also gives me hope that my hair won't always be the hot mess of colours it is now!
I have never taken a photo of my hair.

Thanks everyone! My hair actually used to be MUCH thicker. I had 2 big sheds in the last few years (stress, hormones, age) when handfuls of hair fell out every day. It was very scary but it seemed to settle down and luckily curly hair is a great hider of thinning hair.

Starmie- no pics of your hair?! That's crazy. We need to see it! : )

I took a photo once when I thought I was having a good hair day. It looked awful so I deleted it and have never bothered again!

Your hair is so gorgeous. If I saw someone with your hair and color in real life, I'd run across the room to tell them how amazing it is.
