Just for fun... calling all long haired wavies

I'm working on growing my 2a/b hair out and I'm always looking for inspiration to continue my hair adventure. I'd love to see pictures of your hair! My current length, about 1.5/2 inches below collar bone.

    Mine reaches down to the bottom of by bra band in the back. A little shorter in the front. It was 2b when it was shorter. The longer it gets it's 2a. It's a challenge to keep waves lookin' perky as length increases!

    Winter weather destroys my waves.. Ah well. 
    2C Fine, long hair, a ton of it. Blonde balayage. East Coast Canadian. 

    Wash: Live Clean Fresh Water Hydrating Shampoo
    Monthly Scalp Cleanse: Baking Soda/Conditioner/Peppermint Essential Oil
    CO: Garnier Whole Blends Legendary Olive Conditioner
    Styling: Devacurl Volumizing Foam, Devacurl Wave Maker, Garnier Curl Treat Jelly
    Refresh Day: Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle, Devacurl Supercream
    Deep Condition: Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Yogurt Treatment

    My whole wash routine is upside-down... detangling, rinsing, applying products, scrunching, diffusing... the bigger the waves, the better!

      The top two pics were from just a few weeks ago right before I got a big chop. The last picture was just a few days ago. I'm hoping it grows quickly. While I am loving the length and howbhealthy it is right now, my intentions with chopping it was to make it healthier and my layers closer together to grow it long again. My hair grows so much faster following the curly girl method so I'm hoping it doesn't take too long!

    I've got below shoulder length hair that I'm trying to begin the curly girl method with. So far it's been a TON of trial and error, and sometimes the length feels like it's weighing down what could be more curl. I'm trying to embrace what I get, but I'm still figuring it out!.

    somedays I get good definition with my 2a hair like above on wash day (hair is below boob) and sometimes it holds a little less well, see below, but that could be due to me still trying to figure out the right routine and product concoction for my hair! Lol... the wind also destroys my waves and sometimes if I dont use enough protein, it falls flat quicker. xx

    I am not sure what type I am but here it is. I got some layers in last week. I am new to the CG method and I am really looking forward controlling that frizz!
