    If you're starting the CG method these are some helpful links. I just started last week and found these sites all to be very helpful.


    This site helps you determine your hair's characteristics and just gives good info on caring for your hair:

    Live Curly Live Free | the naturally curly hair experts

    Curly Nikki | Natural Hair Styles and Natural Hair Care

    Good luck :hello2:

    Low-poo: Looking for a new one.
    Condish: V05 Tea Therapy, Body Shop Banana
    Leave in: Giovanni Direct Leave In
    PT: My hair needs very little. I use Suave Naturals Coconut when I need a little bit and follow up with a moisturizing conditioner.
    Styler: Giovanni LA

    Go Red Wings!
