    Jillipoo, your hair is gorgeous!:flower:

    Well I tried a little experiment yesterday...some gel and a hair dryer. I normally let it air dry, but for the fun of it I wanted to see what would happen and here are my results. Now I just wish I had a diffuser...

    I really like your haircut in your pre-CG pic. I think it looks great on your very attractive face -- it's a cute cut. But I absolutely LOVE your CG curls!!

    3b Shoulder-length dark brown curls.
    Using
    : Suave Naturals conditioners, LA Looks Curl/Sport Gel, still looking for a good deep conditioner that i can buy locally (CVS/Walmart/Target,etc). Suggestions? =)

    I like to mix Suave coconut cond. with my gel and scrunch them both in, after using Suave Aloe and Waterlily to co-wash and condition. I detangle it in the shower with a wide-toothed comb. & when hair is dry, if crunchy, scrunch once again. :D

    You guys are killing me with these gorgeous bobs. How can I ever grow my hair out if you all are tempting me to chop again!
    --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.

    Okay, so I managed to get onto an older computer of mine and was able to find some pictures. Gosh...I looked beyond horrendous! I honestly do not know how I had any friends...I guess I must have oozed with personality!

    Wow you & your hair are both beautiful! :toothy4:

    Wow! Everyone has such gorgeous curls! And there has been major improvements with going cg! We should share this thread with Lorraine Massey!

    Well here are a few pics of my curly journey!

    I was a curlie in denial and straightened everyday for over 10 years...
    pinkMisha-vi.jpg

    Then I started to wonder what my natural curls looked like. So I stopped straightening, but this is what I looked like...

    not really much curl there.

    So here I am after CG!

    Awh, thank you for the nice comments, Devagirlbrazil, Katiecurl, and sexyjacksparrow.

    Rose, your curls are so shiny and healthy! so pretty! I can't wait till my curls are your length when they are dry. My hair is that long now if it's stretched... hate the shrinkage.
