I was, but I think I've bumped myself up to 2b overall after being CG for 11 months.

I'm definitely a 2a, but if I'm not lazy and take the time to use my magical mix of products I transform into 2b.

Me too! I am still really trying to figure out technique and products though. Never quite get it where I want it . . . I am wondering if people can share their process to help us get some ideas. Like right now I rake through condish in the shower, scrunch lightly, rinse upside down, scrunch in LI, jelly while soaking wet, then scruch dry with microfiber towel, scrunch in gel, clip, diffuse till partly dry, scrunch in more jelly a la Smasters, then diffuse dry a bit longer and smooth on some Mirror Curls when hair is all the way dry. This seems to be working ok but kind of stringy and producty still. Are you ladies doing anything that is working??
