A teenager who actually embraces her curls? Egads!

So hi! I'm a thirteen year old from the bay area and yes, I do actually love my curls- I'm a 2c/3a. I'm not CG but I'm hoping to try mod CG soon- I'm pretty fearful that just regular CG will overcondition my hair, as it's already fairly oily. I used to brush my hair every day until this spring, when my sister forced product on me. I never went back. =D I get the curls from my Jewishness- I'm a second generation russian-american. I'm also trying to grow my hair out for the first time- I traditionally keep it between chin and shoulder length but right now it's a bit past my shoulders and I'm hoping it'll get longer.

Anyways, enough with the rambling. Hi!
Mod CG as of 10/18/08
Using: Suave Naturals, L'oreal Vive Pro Nutri Gloss, LA Looks Sports Gel.

    San Francisco Bay Area? Another new, curly, jew-hair Bay Area person! Time for new hair for a new year - l'shana tova ;)
    "when I sleep, my curls crush flat, like a slinky that's slopped sideways"
    Gone 'girly. Last 'poo 10/18/08
    Current experiment is Co-Wash and Condition: V05 kiwi lime clarifying conditioner
    Then KBB super silky, KCCC, then L'Oreal Melting Gel with a bit of GF Super Stiff mixed in.
    Pre-toweling, post-toweling, pre-plop and post-plop. The jury is not out on the plopping thing. I think my hair is too fine.
    fine / non-porous / thin aka 3"abba" / oh so Fine / just barely ii
