    I suspect you have more curl there. I notice actually that your shorter hairs are bouncier and curlier. Right now I think it's a tough call about length because your previous short length was made of damaged hair. It wasn't til I got my hair cut short, cutting off the henna/hydrogen peroxide, that my true curl pattern emerged, much curlier than what I ever could have guessed.

    Hey guys!
    I just found this site and I love it!!
    My hair went crazy curly when I was 13, until then it was straight. And I hated it curly :D I kept it in a ponytail all the time and I had a bad case of triangle head when I did wear it down. Because of that, I decided to grow it long to get rid of volume. I slowly started to like it, the only thing I hated was frizz, I had lots and lots of frizz even tho I never brushed it dry.
    Well, about two years ago my hair decided to become straight again, just when I started to like it :sad5:
    I started my "research" what could I do about it and found about CG. I've been following CG method since May, and my hair did get healthier, and I have much less frizz, but it looks like my curls are gone (that's why I don't know If I should post this in type 2 or 3 forums :D ).

    First 3 photost are before CG, last 2 are from a week ago :)

    Here's my contribution! Before: about 4 years ago, brushing it out everyday, no product / leave-in only. Now: modified CG, what a difference!
    aggressively wavy | baby-fine | low density | high porosity

    starting from scratch on products, Living Proof "Timeless" was a disaster (crispy dry after 6 mos)

    Two weeks in to CG! Two tweaks are going to happen: 1) switch from the L'Oreal EverCurl cleanser to Suave Coconut, 2) switching from gel to mousse. Gel has been leaving me stringy and makes my hair feel gunky.

    Wow! Your hair is so much like mine and has turned out so beautifully! What did you do differently?

    Ooh!! Here's mine. 1st pic really shows how frizzle fried I was. 2nd pic is about 20 minutes after my curly cut. 3rd is from last month. I used to set my hair in pincurls every night. The only product I ever used was hairspray, and lots of it. I am pretty happy with the change.

    This is a before and after (literally one day) with and without my belived Innersense products.

    After using a sulfate free shampoo, I rinsed out but left in a bit of Innersense Color Conditioner, a teeny bit of olaplex 3 followed by raking and scrunching Innersense I Create Volume and a lot of Innersense Curl Cream. Topped with a teeny bit of Kinky Custard for hold. Clipped and hood dried.

    I would love to know exactly what you used in your hair in the last picture. Perfect hair. Although they all look great.

    I love seeing everyone's before and after pics!

    My first image is pre-CG, the second image is about 2 months CG (while still going through a lot of product sample trial and error), the last three are all 7 months CG - I included all of them to show the differences in curl pattern I still get depending on the day, weather, products, etc.

    Thank you! The before pic is what shea moisture coconut and hibiscus line does for me in winter.. lol So nice in the warm summer but so not in the winter.

    I cannot recommend Innersense products enough however they are the priciest products Ive seen and not everyone will be able to pay those prices unfortunately.
