CG in Vegas (newbie..kinda)

Hi all,

I've been a member since earlier this year, but this is my first posting. I am 21, i have been in dry Las Vegas for about 11 years. I graduate from UNLV in May 2009 and for the first time I have time to get this hair thing together I LOVE my hair sometimes (its a love/hate relationship) and Im the only one in my family who goes here is my hair bio:

-I THINK i have 3c hair??? (pics attached)
-I started the CG method over the summer (no poo, no cones...)
-I only straighten every 3 months or so.
-Use permanent dye (naturally dk brwn, now caramel color)
-No perms or relaxers since I was in middle school.
-My hair is dry from the Vegas weather
-i trim my ends every month or so.
-I have pretty much tried everything that i know of
-I usually wear my hair down or in a loose pony b/c the crown is so thick and once it dries thats it.

What hair type am I?
How do i saty on the CG course in Vegas?
Daily matinence when straightening?
Frizz control?
Dry hair (deep condirtioners)?
Style ideas?
Any tips form others?

Thats all i can think of let the journey begin!

    Welcome robi!!!

    It's good to finally see someone else from the Vegas area post!

    From the pic of you in your car, I'd say you're a 3c.

    Unfortunately, I really don't have a lot of CG-worthy advise to give you - I know, shame on me - but I'm more what you call a "modified" CG. It'll be a year in February that I've been in Vegas, so I have a use-whatever-works-for-you type of method. Meaning, I'll use products that have 'cones or sulfates b/c those products work for me. And, b/c I'm still somewhat new to the area, I'm still experimenting with products. (I did try "Mixed Chicks" however, and loved it.)

    Any real advice I can give to you is to lurk a lot on this website - there are lots of other knowledgeable curlies that live in dry/dessert climates that can point you in the right direction for product recommendations.

    Congratulations in advance on your pending graduation from UNLV, and welcome again, neighbor, to the boards! :compress:
