Here is my hair after a few months of doing the Curly Girl routine. I really wouldn't classify it as being curly... especially since when this picture was taken, it was freshly washed and dried. As the day progresses, it tends to lose it's wave.
Despite not getting a head of cascading curls, I think that I will be continuing with the program. I like the texture of my hair on this program and think that it improves the overall "look" of my tresses. Though it sounds like a lot of work, it really hasn't been. This is what I do to my hair:
Each time I shower, I wash my hair with conditioner. On Sunday nights, I wash it with equal parts of vinegar, lemon juice, and conditioner. After I rinse that out, I rewash it with conditioner again. On Wednesdays, I wash it with 4 tablespoons of baking soda combined with 4 cups of water before I use conditioner. Once my shower is over, I scrunch my hair with a towel, spritz it with de-tangling spray and scrunch in gel. I clip up my hair while it air dries and that is it.
