    Looks fantastic, really healthy. Is that your natural color. it looks great.

    Fine, medium porosity
    Right now I am using GVP conditioning balm for cowash and RO,
    my hair loves protein.
    for styling my base is BRHG I can use it alone but prefer with Curl Keeper. I sulphate poo once a month or so as needed.

    Thanks everyone, I am so happy with the results. A little TLC goes a long way with Natural Curly hair! Yes that is my natural color!When i was using relaxers it was so damaged that my hair looked red, i hated it. I am so happy and proud to be all Natural now and for once in my life i feel like i can somewhat control my frizz issues enough to satisfy me lol. Thank you all for the compliaments!

    Girl you're hair looks amazing! I've been CG for about 1wk and 4 days. Still experimenting and I can't wait to get my air back to it's fullest extent! I used to rely on twist outs and braids to protect my hair but now I got sick of them and I want to wear my hair natural. CG has made such a huge impact on your hair, it's beautiful!!

    Your hair looks great! That is weird. When I was having mine straightened it had a red tint also. It was sooo sooo damaged. Congratulations on the transition.
