teen on a budget! (3c)

I would just like to introduce myself! :)
Senior in high school
From Georgia,
Growing up, as you know
combs breaking.
screaming...
hair grease drowned on my curls...

As I got older,
my mother wanted me to get
a "texturizer". I didn't mind, I didn't the know the severity of the
"damage" and all the chemicals it contained.

At the age of the 16, I realized it's time to embrace my curls and knots and embrace what my momma gave me...I've been alone on my journey but...!

I'm so happy and blessed that there are sites like this to help and educate women/men of all colors and hair types! :)

I will be in college in a few months: my goal is to find the best products without hurting the pockets :)

    Cheapest and best Cg gel spray (my opinion) : Herbal essences set me up gel spray

    38151904165_220x220_a.jpg

    2-3 dollars.


    This is my only holy grail product. I can't say the best and cheapest conditioner, etc. I think sauve coconut conditioner, will probably recommended. I think everyone starts CG with that lol

    I just started cg,
    and ill be moving to GA later this week ^-^

    Here's a CG condish budget list-
    http://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/showthread.php?t=76251

    Uh, i LOVE the smell of VO5 tea tree. think im going to start cowashing with that. THAT ASIDE...

    The suave/vo5 line are like 2-3$? good for cowashing

    Thicker condish a lot of people rave about thats cheap, is the GVP Conditioning Balm from Sally's. For conditioning. 6$?
    The Giovanni ones are also apparently really good for conditioning and leavein. which're 6$ too i think.

    Before CG i used the garnier leave ins sometimes, and they were awesome. Hydrating, and good slip. I forget the prices though!

    L.A. looks sports gel are really raved about. They dont dry out your hair. Doesnt leave crunch if you use the right amount, and if it does crunch, its really easy to scrunch out. Keeps away frizz, leaves hair REALLY shiney, and great curl definition. Just find what hold you like best (: and theyre under 5$ for the large containers.

    That seems pretty simple and easy, good for budget, and great results (:
