I would always spritz my hair with my lil mix but I would manipulate my hair and cause it to frizz. Now, I just spray and go. I didnt think it would work for me because our textures are different but it did. I just wanted to say thank you!! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Thanks again Smile


Hey!

Yes, I still use the Bed head, I just ran out! Lol!!! I am still following the CG method too, it is just a modified CG method, bc the Herbal Essence Hello Hydration does have one cone in it. I also shampoo once a month with a sulfate free shampoo.

When I did the bc the only products that I used were:
(I still use them too! He he !)

Suave Naturals Conditioner
V05 Conditioner
TIGI Bed HEad Moisture Maniac Conditioner
Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Conditioner
Herbal Essence Totally Twisted Conditioner
Herbal Essence Set Me Up Gel
Isoplus Gel

That is it...oh yeah, sulfate free shampoo of your choice.

I DC'd with Suave naturals and added honey and olive oil seperately to the mix once a week and sat under my hooded dryer for 30 min. As you can see I use a lot of conditioner! Lol!

Bedhead isnt all natural though...

I really havent tried all the natural products yet, mostly bc I am in Germany right now, so I will wait until I get back stateside. HTH!

Congrats! I used conditioner as my leave in...regular conditioner and my curls used to POP! You can also use gel if you dont mind your hair being a little crunchy...I like Herbal essences Set me up or Isoplus gel (yellow)..or just conditioner alone. I hear good things about ECO styler gel and IC fantasia, havent tried it yet!

Remember always apply product to wet hair, you get the best results that way, and do not touch it while drying!

TIP: If your hair feel a little hard after it dries, quickly run your hands over it front to back no more than twice, it will soften the curls and wont disturb them! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Intelbeauty; girrrl dnt worry about the different textures, thats the beauty of natural hair. my girlfriend is on the fence of going natural cuz she doesnt want to look "nappy"...what is lookin nappy, lol?? when i had the even steven cut i pictured my hair with solange curls..well umm, i got solange curls on the side and kizzy fist curls on top! my son's dad isnt feelin my low twa but i dnt see him running to his wallet to get my hair done so [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] to him!

so mahog; i've heard of the IC gels too so im gonna try out the olive oil one w/aloe vera. i've noticed my curls pop more when i put the aloe on right after my co-wash vs rummaging oils n moisturizer first! i do hate the crunchy feel becuz it reminds of that infamous black gel of doom from the 90's but im gonna attempt to let the gel dry first and soften my curls with oil/moisturizer on my hands after!

now tryin not to touch as they dry...errrr...umm, ok i can try! im just so in love with my hair now i cant help it. im in the puppy love stage [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Thank you so much for your encouragement and Ms. Kisha's words of comfort. I feel like maybe I can do this. So now I am not dead set on transitioning another 8 months. But I am still on the fence. We will see.
Anyway, when did you BC in the summer or winter?
