Hello, everyone!

I've been lurking and reading this site for about a month. I've learned SO much already from many of you, and I realized it was time to join so I could participate in the forums.

In May, I read the Curly Girl book and started doing CG, and then I found this site. I'm thrilled to see the difference in my hair already. I'm one of those people who never knew she had wavy (curly?) hair but I always wanted it, so this is very exciting! My hair was quite straight into my 20s, but in the many years since then, I assumed I just had "bad" thick frizzy straight hair. After just one day of CO-washing and no brushing or combing, I saw that I had a lot of waves! Just one month later, I'm seeing a lot more waves and even some spirals! And it's getting better all the time as I learn more about how to care for it & how to treat it.

My Product Junkie is already in full gear--I've been buying & testing all kinds of products, experimenting in the kitchen, and clipping & plopping like a mad woman! I even took pictures this week after my best clumpy day!

I'm looking forward to talking with all of you and sharing our experiences. I'm already very impressed with the warmth & intelligence of this community and look forward to knowing you better.

I'm not sure of my type yet, I thought 2B when I started, and I'll try to post pix soon and hope you can tell me!
