Hello everyone!

My name is Samantha, or Sam. :]

I believe I am in between a 3a, and 3b, leaning more towards the b-side (it depends on the day/product I suppose)

I have been doing a no-poo method (sort of- only use a little 2 or 3 times a week) for about 6 months, and I just created my own conditioner concoction and used it for the first time today!

So far I love it, but it is a tad difficult to tell how something works on your hair immediately sometimes. My hair seems softer... of course, i'm being counter-productive by using my chemical filled garnier styling products :/

My that was a long-winded introduction. :]

Hello everyone

Um, I'm not so sure if I'm posting in the right place but I am new to this site and new to taking care of curls. I probably should have done this a long time ago. I am mainly here to repair my scalp and hair. So I hope I have found the right place. Either way I'm looking forward to healthier hair.
I only found this as a reply but I cannot seem to find a "post new message" button. I'd like to ask a question. Thank you.
Recovering from too many cones and dye

3b and 3c
Hi! I'm a newbie to this site and the whole natural journey. I am three months post relaxer. I was wearing my hair in kinky twists but now, I am wearing it out. I am not really sure my hair type yet b/c I still have a lot of relaxed hair; based on my new growth I'm going with 4a. I am open to any suggestions or advice on handling my hair during this transition period.

Happy to be here!
Hi there-
I'm Michelle and I'm new to the site. I'm a 3b/3c hair type with fine strands.

I've been natural going on 6 years but you would never know since I've been using flat irons, the Maxxi glyde and now the InStyler.

I've decided to go heat free for the rest of this year and see how much growth I can achieve. I'm past my shoulders in the back by my crown needs some love!

Great to be here amongst other curly gurls :-)
I'm a closet wavy. I kinda knew that my hair waved and curled a little at the bottom, but just thought straight hair did that when it airdryed (I know, I'm dumb.) So I don't know too much what I'm doing, and am having a hard time giving up the brush, let alone no-poo.

I was led here because of researching DD's hair. It was curling some, especially at the ends, and becoming nothing but frizz when I brushed it. I started CO washing hers and scrunching with AVG, no brushing, and she's looking lovely. Wavy curls everywhere and some spirals too.
Also discovered her older sister has loose S-waves.

I'm trying some CG stuff for me too, but it seems I'm going to be hard to figure out.

Think by this typing system I'm 2a, and I guess DD's are too? I'll get it figured out I guess.

I first learned about the no-poo in a chat forum on; one of the UK users was trying it and a few of us decided to try with her. My hair philosophy was pretty much "I'll leave you alone, if you leave me alone," so I went from poo/condish/air dry/ignore to water wash/air dry/ignore. Was happy with the results and now, 2 years later, I'm checking out the site to see what I should have been up to this whole time.

Still not planning to poo (that doesn't sound very good!) but am interested in any natural conditioners I can make or find in the kitchen, that would benefit my hair. Honey and okra spring to mind. My hair is 2c-3a, salt-and-pepper, and goes a little past my waist. I wear it down most of the time, but sometimes in the humid Midwest summer, I'll do a loose braid.

Shortly after I stopped poo-ing, I also stopped poo-ing my mom's hair. No need to bore you with the details, but suffice it to say that I'd been showering her for a number of years and we'd been battling facial and scalp issues that entire time. Well, all that cleared up! No more breakouts, rashes, itching, etc, and also, no more worries about getting soap in her eyes. Her hair quality improved remarkably. We were able to let it grow out, and also to use pretty barrettes again, which was a huge improvement in her quality of life. To be able to remove a big stress from the last 2 years of her life, and replace it with something fun, meant a lot to me.

Hi fellow Curlies!

I'm Sarah I'm 22 years old and I have 4b/c hair. I've been straightening my hair with pressing combs and flat irons for most of my life and I'm ready for a change. For about 2 years a processed my hair with a chemical texturizer and loved the look but hated the damage. I've been transitioning for about 2 years since and my hair is fairly healthy. I'm excited to chat with other curlies and hear about your adventures.
Hey I know exactly how you feel. I love my fro too and I want it be as healthy as it can be.

Hi everyone! My name is Kari, I'm 24 years old, and I have newly-manageable 3a iii hair. I've been reading on the CG and no-poo methods for a while now, and off and on trying different variations. I'm officially on one week of CG, and I LOVE IT. I will never EVER go back. My hair looks phenomenal when I wake up in the morning, without ever having to touch it first.

Anyway, hello everyone.

I have been natural since December 2006 (two days before New Year's!!) I have been watching the forum for a while and looking for new ways to "embrace" my curls, and FINALLY I decided to join! lol!

I am hoping to find great hair styling and maintenance ideas!! I think I have 3c hair...and well I'm willing to learn. I am definitely thankful for this site!

Have a blessed and wonderfully curly day everyone!

Hey all, my name's Tricia, a wavy (2a that has potential to curl!) who's decided to do anything it takes to embrace these unruly waves! I've known my hair was wavy since two summers ago, but nothing I did to it seem to make it clump nicely. Now I'm giving the CG method a shot and avoiding sulfates in products at all cost.
I'm really hoping I can finally stop straightening and curling for once and wear my hair naturally wavy soon.

Wish me luck and thanks for being a great resource!
Hi everyone,

I'm pretty new here. I'm from Trinidad cut my relaxed hair off. Honestly, I just did not care for it anymore and I missed my natural hair. I did this once before and let it grow from a boy cut to shoulder length, then relaxed it.

That won't happen again I can guarantee but I now have to get use to my natural hair once again. I never treated it as I should have in it's natural state, but I inted to do that now.

I can tell I will have a good time here .
hi i just joined this site today, looking for some help with my curly hair!
Hey, my name is Karima.

It has been about 9 months since ive been transitioning. I decided to do this officially when I watched Good Hair by Chris Rock. So far my transitioning has been interesting. Now I am just going to be looking for a hair regimen, one that is not too expensive for me to use for my ohh so natural hair!
Hello everyone my name is CJ. I've been lurking for a few days and decided to introduce myself.
Hi everyone, my name is Lisa, but my username is Maggab, which is a combo of the names of my two cats. I've been CG for almost two years now; my curl-iversary will be August 30th.

I'm a type 3B, or a corkicelli, depending on what system you use. I've been naturally curly all my life, but didn't learn to fully embrace it till a friend of mine encouraged me to go CG after she did it herself.

I discovered these forums about three weeks ago and am really happy to be here!
