I have extremely curly hair! I get it cut by someone certified in ouidad. I don’t use any special products, but I do avoid washing it with shampoo too much as that dries it out.

I’ve been modified CG for I think almost a year now! I like it, it makes my hair feel healthier and my curls look better. I currently use Shea moisture shampoos and tresemme naturals conditioner. I rarely use silicones, but I do on occasion when I want to straighten my hair. Natural Curls are awesome!

I’m a curly girl too. I have corkscrews. I also don’t shampoo too often (2x a week). I don’t use any special products. I use clear shampoo and conditioner. And I use the in shower treatment 3x per week (I condition every day). To style I use a bit of mousse and I air dry. Right now my hair is several inches past my shoulders. It’s driving me crazy! I never let it get this long, but I’m growing it for the wedding. It will be chopped as soon as we’re back from honeymoon next march (I’ve been trimming it only when it needs it. It’s pretty strong and I don’t have split ends/breakage, so it doesn’t need a trim too often).

That sounds interesting… My hair is in awful condition at the moment with the heat of summer so I should look into that…

Meky:  There is some transition time as your hair and scalp get used to it, but it’s worth it.

I’ve been using low sulphate shampoo and no silicones since March this year.

So far my hair is much healthier! I have any where from 2B – 3A hair, depending on how I style it. If I use curl creme and scrunch I get more 3A curls, but I get much sleeker waves if I just leave it to dry with just serum in it.

I’ve found the body shops rainforest brand to be really good, their shine shampoo & conditioner is my favourite at the moment!

The only thing I can’t get rid of is the frizz! it’s much better since starting CG, but not completly gone 🙁

I’ve been CG for over 3 years now – I have 3c/4a curls. I used to do the Japanese straightening but I got sick of sitting in a salon for 5 hours at a time and I’m a poor student lol.

Trader Joe’s shampoo works the best for my hair without drying it out. I used to use their conditioner too, but they recently changed the formula to include silicone, so I’ve switched over to Whole Foods’ conditioner, which makes my hair shiny and defined, but may be a bit heavy for others. I also use Jojoba oil or coconut oil as a leave-in. Rinsing my hair in cold water is the best trick for defined, shiny curls that I’ve found.

My hair is in between wavy/ boticelli. I used to straighten and wash it every other day, and dye it every few months. Needless to say it’s taken it’s toll on my hair. I’ve stopped all that nonsense and am embracing my natural curls and surprisingly everyone likes it! Though I still need to cut off a couple of inches from previous damage. I wash my hair every 2-3 days, and last time I colored it was in september. I use plain ol shampoo and conditioner and I want to switch to something better whenever I cut my hair but idk where to start! I’m thinking devacurl but I’m reluctant to pay more than five bucks for a shampoo, but hey if it’s works then it’s worth it.

Definitely a curly girl here!  I am a huge supporter of Cantu products.  I adore their coconut curling cream.  I also love Tigi Curls Rock!  I wash once a week.  Let it airdry for a bit after I put my products in, then I difuse the rest of the way while touching it as little as possible!  Hands through hair is a no-no with curly hair.

Can I just say, I had no idea there was a rating system!  I just looked it up.  I’m a 3b.  That’s pretty cool.  

It won’t make me do anything different, my hair is healthy, soft and shiny and it curls nicely (even if the volume makes me crazy sometimes.)  It’s nice to know at least. 

I do have a question for those who go to specialty salons – does the cut really make that big a difference?  If so, how?  Easier to manage?  Better overall shape? Better curl?  

I just can’t justify the price when I’m pretty happy with my hair as it is now.  But I’ve always been tempted to try it out.
