Greeting From Nova Scotia!

Hi Curlies!

I'm just dropping by to introduce myself - I'm 27 and from beautiful Nova Scotia. I am a natural curly (3a) and spent most of my childhood/young adulthood trying desperately to straighten it. In the past few years, I've decided to embrace my natural curls (when I started, all of my friends started asking, what did you do to your hair? They all thought my straight hair was natural :P)

I stumbled upon a long hair forum and started reading about Co-Washing and that lead me to start thinking of my hair and what I put in it. I started co-washing every couple of days between shampoos.

Now, I think I'm ready to go full co-washing. I've put my shampoo away (not ready to throw it out, just in case!) and found conditioner that is CG approved and here I go!

I'm hoping to get some tips and support from fellow curlies here :)
~Give me a head with hair,
long beautiful hair ~

    Glad to have you with us, Nattykins! You'll find tons of good info on these boards. Be patient and remember that the same thing doesn't work for everyone. Experiment with ideas you read about -- even if it sounds a little strange! It worked for someone!! Be sure to post what works for you - and what doesn't. That's how we all learn and grow. Have fun!
