  • Thanks for posting this! I'm giving it a shot right now with one of my flour sack towels. : )
  • Thanks! I thought people here might be interested in taking a look, particularly with the illustrations through the years. I have more photos through the years, but I wanted to minimize my tendency toward long-windedness. : ) The "wing" period is…
  • Just caught this thread, and the first red flag that was raised when I read your original post was that when you scheduled your initial appointment, it was for only two weeks out. I've heard lots of stories wait times that are months long to get an …
  • 1. They're sproingy 2. They make me look different than my mom. 3. They get me all sorts of positive attention. (Sorry, I can only think of three...)

  • Thanks for giving me the extra push I needed...I just left a message to make an appointment! : ) It will be my first Deva cut, so I'll be pretty nervous/thrilled/exhilarated to see what it's like.
  • Oh, thanks. : ) Actually those Fotki photos are kinda old–the most recent was from July. Hopefully I'll be able to add some more soon, but my new digital camera makes it harder to take photos of yourself (no detachable screen).

  • This is the skull cap that I have. It's by Sheila Moon, a small company from San Francisco. They have super-cool designs! http://www.influence-tech.com/Catalog/ProductDetail.aspx?CatalogID=aa5864c3-3a87-4dd8-8d76-2c319d0f8f70&ProductModelID=5…
  • Is it possible to wear a thin hat under your helmet? When I ride my bike (two hours a day, to and from work) I wear a skull cap underneath my helmet. It's made of dry wicking material so even though I don't dry my hair in the morning, I don't have h…
  • I use the conditioner and love it. Although I keep experimenting with other conditioners, I always seem to come back to that one.

  • Mint wrote: Another option you can try is Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. It's really good for moisturizing the face without breakouts (for me, anyway). It has dimethicone, but it says it's non-comedeogenic and good for sensitive skin. A little goes…
  • curlquest wrote: i have this problem too! especially in winter. i wonder why rosewater? is it an ingredient in a product or do you use it by itself, how do you use it and where do you get it? thanks so much, i would love to try it, but don't know …
  • I tend to break out if I start using silicones and many oils with any regularity. In fact, not too long after I went CG, I discovered that a new conditioner I was trying had silicones, because I started breaking out! Also, I have the problem with…
  • Their mango honey shaving cream (in an orange tube w/flip top) is really good too! And I use the nourish conditioner nearly every day. : )
  • I have used shampoo once since I started CG this past February. Although I own a diffuser, I use it only rarely (even when it's frosty in the morning!). I don't buy or use any 'cones. I looked back at the previous thread and noticed that I used "…
  • I don't know about everyone else, but since I am strictly CG I didn't bother to look at that thread, since it implied it was only for people who weren't strictly CG. However, I just went and cast my vote. I know there are a lot of other strictly CG …
  • I bike to work on many mornings, with wet hair. Last weekend I got a Sheila Moon skullcap that is made of dry wicking material (https://www.influence-tech.com/Uploads/7b54f3ad1c944eff9bc5defc07634715.jpeg). I can wear it for an hour or more without …
  • I agree that it sounds like this young woman has questionable judgement beyond her choice of her method of transportation. But I was a bit taken aback with the suggestion that someone "had no business riding a bike." Why not? Bikes have something…
  • I've been CG since February, and serious frizz is a problem for me too. I slowly came to the conclusion recently that most of the frizz is due to hair damage from my pre-CG lifestyle. This was confirmed the other day when I was looking at the newer …

  • One of my favorite subjects–bikes! When I was in first grade, my family took one of our many trips to the local mall. When we were exiting through Sears, I spied a dark pink bike that had a basket with plastic flowers, streamers, and most importa…
  • Well, her character on SCRUBS was a very aggressive business woman. The hair people may have decided that her curly hair was more associated with "softness" or something. The clothes she wears in her episodes also reflects this. Very tight-fitting, …
  • I like the longer one! : P
  • I had also seen the episodes with her a few times, before I happened to catch her name on IMDB and was blown away because I had no idea it was her. Not that I've ever seen any of her other work, but I still thought I would have recognized her.
  • I was also a little apprehensive when I first bought LA Looks' "Wet Look" gel. However, I soon discovered that it doesn't give me a wet look at ALL (this is a good thing!). I think you have to use a lot of it to get the wet look, and I use between a…
  • "snarliest" Is this even a word? It seems like it should be "most snarled" or something. I know I purposefully use the incorrect form of verbs to be tongue-in-cheek, but this is "journalism!"
  • EchoKitten, I just tried CK for the first time Saturday, and while it did lessen frizz a little bit (not significantly), I found that it enhanced my curl a fair amount. Give it a try!
  • It probably won't come out for a veeeery long time, if ever. Apparently LM often remarks "when I write the second book," etc., in various interviews, and has been saying similar comments for at least a few years. So don't hold your breath on a new b…
