Hi everyone *waves*
I’m not new to CG but I am starting from the beginning again after 2 years of giving up on my hair
Way back in 2008 I went CG. Which went….ok. My hair did get better - but I never really achieved what I wanted, and I was far too busy with university to keep it up.
Its time to try again - and hopefully get the desired results! My routine as best as I could get it at the time was:
Aubrey Organics conditioner or Faith in Nature conditioner
Boots Curl Cream
Homemade Flaxseed Gel
There are loads more products to choose from now (thanks to the amazing Emporium!) and Im learning more about porosity and texture etc so Im hoping I can get my dream curls.
Anyway - here are some old photos detailing my previous CG attempts.
1st image - I think was after trying out Jessicurl’s stylers. My hair didn’t seem to like it very much, it was still wet here in the photo, but it was very frizzy and felt dry. I think this was a reaction to the salts in her products- I was so excited to get hold of these and try them out, I was bitterly disappointed lol!
2nd image - Pretty sure this is after trying AOHR - it left my hair worse than before CG - very very dry and as you can see, loss of any curl. I figured out after that my hair seemed to like protein (but I never really understood it much further than that lol!)
3rd image - Starting to see some improvement - its always the top/outer layer of hair that I have most trouble with. The ringlets/tighter curls underneath behave much better in general!
