Hi everybody,

I've started CG 2 months ago, and I'm finally starting to see results, I'm achieving root lift, 2nd day hair and a nice curl pattern.
I live in France and is very difficult,is almost like a interminable quest to find CG products, silicone and sulfate free.
I'm glad to find out FSG and plopping, they really make change my hair.
I just want to share my progress ( this is a 2nd day pic) and be thankful to all the curlys that share all they amazing knowledge.

Merci!!

    Thank you Leonita,

    I find Surya Brasil conditioners, they are unexpensive, rich in natural ingredients and add moisture to my hair without weighing down. I use the Amla&Melon one for co-wash, the Cinnamon& Cupaçu one as deep conditioner, and again Amla&Melon one as a live in, then I put a good amount of FSG.

    For root lift, just after plopping I clip up my hair with little jaw or octopus clips, the secret is to really push up the hair, (the highest the better). That would form a "crown" , then I diffuse for 5 minutes. When is 100% dry, I take out the clips and I scrunch out the crunch with 3 drops of jojoba oil.

    I hope that will be helpful, with this rutine some times I achive 3day hair, depends on the humidity.
