New curls

Hi, all,
I'm new to the site and new to curls for that matter. Within the past several years I've noticed my hair getting more and more wavy. It started when my first child was born, then more so with the second. This year it has gotten really curly - I'm a 2C, maybe 3A in the underlayers. Wierd, but I didn't notice really until I caught sight of the back of my hair in a dressing room. I'm trying the CG method and it's kind of fun to see how my hair is going to look each morning. But frustrating too for the same reason. Anyway, already learning lots here.
2b/c, medium-coarse, high-density, medium-porosity, CG since 2011.
Co-wash: Suave/ VO5

    Exciting! I discovered my wavy hair about one year ago, and i'm 62! I always had my hair cut very short or had it permed curly. Three years ago I let a perm start growing out and the waves and end curls are still here even after cutting quite a bit off. I'm loving it!

    Welcome, mysterycurls! Fair warning - this can turn into an obsession! Have fun reading through the boards. There's tons of great info here and lots of great people! Be sure to post what works for you - and what doesn't. That's how we all learn!
