I'm will never have those loose spiral curls other naturals have, no matter how much I wish or what products I use. I will only have what I have, dense, tight, tiney coils. Nothing will change this and after almost 4yrs being natural, I have now embraced them and grown to love them. It is what it is and it's what I am. It's me. me1

Yep and isn't it great when we finally embrace what we have! You best believe somebody is wishing their curls looked like yours. what products do you use? Have your tried the curly girl method? I been doing that for almost four years and my hair never been better.

My fellow Naturals, I've given up on buying expensive creams and gellies. I grew tired of taking up to 2hrs combing, parting, using a denman and then racking those products through my hair. This is what I do once a week. I cowash my hair with a moisturizing conditioner. I love Hello Hydration. After my cowash, I use Cantu Shea Butter leave in and then Soft and Beautiful Botanicals lite moisturizing cream. All these products together smell wonderful. I get a charge when after I do my hair people compliment me on how good my hair smells. I then part my hair in fourths. Here comes the easy part, I grab a palm full of World of Curls Curl Activator and Eco Olive Oil Styling Gel, I then grab one of the 4ths and go to town. I rack both through from the scalp to the ends. There you have it 20 minutes tops. Shake it out and I'm good to go. At the end of the day, I go to bed with a satin bonnet and in the morning spray down my hair with water and shake. Is my hair wet? YES Most of the time is my hair still damp when I go to bed? YES. Can it be different? I don't think so. WATER is a real good friend to MY hair. So there you have it, I spend about $25.00 every 4 months for these products and I'm satisfied with what they do for the hair I'm given.

Well, here's one person who wishes her hair looked like yours. I think your curl pattern is great, and you look like you rock it with confidence, too.
