Hey gals and guys. =)

38 year old curly/wavy/frizzy here in NE Ohio. I've actually been a lurker for a month and into the CG routine for about a week and a half! I'm loving the results so far..my hair is much, much healthier (although still a bit too frizzy for my tastes). Before I started no 'poo, I suffered from horrible dry, itchy, scaly scalp all year 'round but that particular issue has cleared up completely!!!!

I have lots and lots of very fine textured highly porous hair that is still deciding what "type" it really is: "I'm wavy..NO.. spirally..no,no...oh, heck, I'll just wave in some spots and curl in others." My CG routine has been a co-wash a few times a week with White Rain energizing citrus condish with a egg and olive oil DT as needed. My eventual goal is to make all of my hair products right here in the kitchen 'cause it's fun. ;)

Like many of you curlies here, I suffered from a vicious sulfate/silicone cycle o' doom that usually ended up in a major haircut (to get rid of the damage). This website and forum has just been....a ray of light and hope in the bittersweet story of My Hair. (dramatic,huh? heehee!)

I'm notoriously lazy when it comes to posting pics on the web but they'll get there eventually. ;)
we just got back from a vacation so the hair is still in recovery anyway and not fit to be photographed!!

Looking forward to being here!
