I apologize if this has been done, or if it's in the wrong place. I wasn't able to find any other threads like this. I just am so curious to see people's before and after pictures for some encouragement.

    I love seeing before and after pictures!  I don't really have any good before pictures.  Somewhere maybe...but not handy on my computer.  But here's some progress pictures of my hair.  Top left is one of my first days after starting the CG method.  Bottom right is most recent.  My hair gets much curlier when it's shorter, but I like longer hair on me.

    I started my journey with not continuing to get relaxers (after getting one every couple of months for almost 10 years!). So, this is where I started. 



    A few years later, my curls were really coming in, but I still had a lot of frizz in the front, so my stylist at that time recommended I get a texturizer. Not the best decision ever as it just loosened my curl pattern even more and was almost like a relaxer so it kind of set me back a little. 




    Present day, I've grown out the relaxer and the texturizer. Still lacking some volume since I've never really gotten a curly cut and my hair has no layers. Fixing that today!

    @Guide 65 Here it is! I love it! 


    Here's the "before" shot. 

    And here's the after! 




    Also, as my stylist was sweeping up, she showed me the different types of curls I had on my head.

    That looks so good @cnic216!  I love the little shorter bits around your face.  It draw more attention to your eyes.

    My before and after pics are decades apart but they really show the difference between using harsh shampoo, washing every day, and brushing my hair and then the switch to CG, no shampoo, washing a couple times a week, no brushing.
    1980's

    Soon after starting CG, 2004.

    14 years after starting CG. 2018.



    --I'm located in Western PA.   --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, joined the forums in May 2005, started going grey in late 2005.   --My hair is 3B with some 3A, currently at mid back length when dry,  texture-medium/fine, porosity-top is low, middle is medium, ends are porous, elasticity-normal.   --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, coconut oil, honey, vinegar.
