Hi y'all!

My name is Kate and I just wanted to say how amazed I am at this website! I wish I had found it sooner! I finally got fed up with putting my hair in a braid or back in a scrunchie. I went out and bought the curly girl handbook, and stumbled upon this website the same day.
I not only have somewhere around 3b-3c kind of curl, I also have red hair, which in my opinion makes management and care twice as hard. I am 23 years old; 23 years of bad haircuts, chemical treatments, frizz and tears. I am blessed with a husband that loves my hair even when it misbehaves or is hiding in a scrunchie. However, it just doesn't make sense to me to go through life fighting my hair! There's enough day to day stress we have to cope with!
Well, I stopped using products that have the laurel sulfates and other detergents about a month ago. I just started the "CG" method two days ago. I can ALREADY see a difference for the better! ALready, my curls are more defined, and even my hair color looks more vibrant (natural hair color; dyed my hair once, and it FRIED my hair, swore never to do it again).
At first I was very skeptical. I mean, how can you possibly go without shampoo?! I've washed and conditioned my hair every single day for years and years. However, unlike coloring or chemically relaxing my hair, if I don't like it, I can always stop right away.
Even though it's only been two days, I'm really happy so far!!! I don't know if this method would work for everyone, but it certainly seems to be working for me!
Thanks so much for this website!

    Hi Kate. I've been caring for my 3b/c mix the CurlyGirl way since 7/04 and love it, love it, love it. I never realized how my life-activities revolved around my hair. "Wait, I can't workout now--I just spent 2 hours straightening it last night. OR, sorry, can't stay over, didn't bring my hair supplies--what's this mess gonna look like in the morning? OR, OMG it started raining, can't go out now." So welcome and have fun. The Curlies here are great!

    3b&c mix, CO (most of the time)
