Hello! As my un says, I'm a curly fangirl

I've started on my curly hair journey this month. Although my hair had looked okay before, I figured I'd try to see what could come from an entirely different approach.

I'm loving it so much. My hair looks amazing. I'm posting some pics so you can have an idea of what's going on with me. First two are pre-CG and last two are CG.

I love having funky colors in my hair, and I don't anticipate that changing, but it's been so interesting to see the differences between my virgin vs processed hair.

I had to chuck out a whole bunch of old products, and I haven't gotten around to trying very many new ones. I'm excited to experience new products once I finish the products I'm using right now.

If you have hair that looks like mine, let me know! :D (also if you have fandoms, we should totally bond!)
