Laura Lee's detailed guide to going CG

There is a ton of really useful info here. The Useful curly link thread is amazing. This guide from Laura Lee though is a really great starter for understanding CG and the reasons to give it a shot and can really help simplify things after being so overwhelmed by info here. It has helped so many and I wanted to give Laura Lee and her guide some recognition.

Laura Lee's guide really is great. It's a permanent link on my blog, and I also just think it's wonderful because it was written with a sincere desire to help people.

Thank you ladies I've always been surprised by the overwhelmingly positive response to it! I just hope it helps people

Fine/thin 2c/3a, Low-Medium Porosity, Dry!
Just to heap more praise on Laura Lee, I usually direct my curly friends to your guide and they've all found it very helpful. Thanks for creating a really great resource!
Trying to figure it all out again.

3a/3b. Med/coarse texture. Low porosity.

Protein sensitive and extremely dry.
Hey I'm a newbie, 3 weeks into my BC and lovin' it, actually this is my second BC. The first one I did a texturizer with, but this time it is completely natural. Now that it's growing, I've become a product junkie and can't seem to find the right one for my 3c hair.

Currently using: Paul Mitchell - The Conditioner(Moisterizer), Round Trip, AG:Recoil, Kinky Curly Curling Custard, and Miss Jessies Curly Pudding

Nope, haven't tried them all at once of course. One will make my curls shrink, where the other one won't give me any curls, and yet another one just smells good and doesn't really do anything.

I need help!!!

Good idea! I think this thread needs a sticky up at the top!
