2 weeks CG!

JustSarahJustSarah Registered Users Posts: 16
I'm now officially a CG! I've learned so much in the past two weeks. I've gone from wearing my hair in a pony tail or half up every day to wearing it down!

What I've learned:
-My hair isn't as tangled as I thought
-I can achieve 2nd day hair!!!
-the CG method takes a lot longer than my old method
-my hair loves plopping and the pineapple
-clipping has saved my life!
-my curls are looking so much better :laughing4:


-I think I need a new hair cut. My curls are significantly looser in the back and I believe I desperately need more layers!
-my canopy has been a bit frizzier now that I'm CG
-I think my products could be weighing my hair down a bit (any good suggestions on products to try!?)
-I cannot get the Deva-fuser to work. It takes FOREVER for my hair to dry while using it and often times leads to more frizz! I want to love it though!

I'm looking for different products to use (I'm a PJ!) so my hair isn't totally weighed down. you can see pics in my fotki!

    Glad to hear CG is working for you. You've learned a lot for just 2 weeks.
    Some people find that adding a bit more leave-in helps with the frizz.
    Since you are a product junkie, I'll point out Kathy Mack. She sells samples of products. This may either end up saving or costing you money. 8-) Hope it saves you money.
