This is my first post, though I have been visiting the site for years now. I'm a long time member of the Long Hair Community, and until recently had very long hair. I recognize a lot of faces (and hair :wink:) from TLHC.

My hair has always been wavy, but lately, due to a lot of hair loss and then regrowth, it's gotten more curly/frizzy, so I've opted for CG full time, rather than part time. I'm still learning, but having decent success. My biggest problem as a 2c, verging on 3a, is curl retention (I like shrinkage!). I'm also a big fan of natural and homemade products, and have co-published articles on TLHC on the use of herbs in hair care.

I'm glad I've officially joined this wonderful community, thanks for being here.

    I'll see if we can figure out what's going on with your start date, etc. Weird. :)
