If you have naturally curly hair, you know how frustrating it can be to find a product that works. So many products on the market claim to help with frizz and other issues, but they don’t! Or they leave your curls looking limp and lifeless.
So if you’re thinking about trying this method for yourself or someone else who loves their natural locks (or wants more love from them), read on!
What is the Curly Girl Method?
The curly girl method wavy hair care method that focuses on the health of your hair rather than simply just styling your curls. It was developed by Lorraine Massey and outlined in her book “Curly Girl: The Handbook”.
It differs from other methods because it doesn’t use any sulphates or silicones (often used in most hair products to make them lather). Instead, it uses natural ingredients like conditioners made with real fruit extracts instead of chemicals.
The way this method helps you get healthy hair is by using some really simple principles: no heat tools, no shampoos, just low poo/co-washing, moisturizing/conditioning every day (or every other day), air drying as much as possible, not brushing or combing when wet and being patient!
What are the benefits of using the Curly Girl Method?
The Curly Girl Method is a method of caring for curly hair that has been around since the late 90s. The main objective of this method is to eliminate frizz, tangles and breakage by avoiding harsh chemicals in shampoos and conditioners. This can be achieved by using only sulphate-free products that don’t contain silicones or parabens.
The benefits of using the Curly Girl Method include no more frizz; no more tangles; no more breakage; no more frustration! It also helps with styling your hair and growing your curls longer!
How is this right for me?
If you are unhappy with your hair or looking for a change, this may be the best thing for you. It is also great to learn more about your hair and how it reacts to certain products and care. This method could be exactly what you’ve been looking for!
How can I transition to the Curly Girl Method?
Curly girls who have tried the Curly Girl Method and know what it’s all about swear by it. Whether you’re transitioning to the Curly Girl Method from twist hair or already use it, here’s how you can make sure your curly hair stays healthy and beautiful:
- Use sulphate-free shampoo and conditioner. Sulphates are chemicals added to shampoos, and body washes to help them foam up when mixed with water. They also remove dirt from your hair more efficiently than natural cleansers do. Still, they can strip away some of your natural oils as well—and if other products don’t replace those oils in enough quantity or with enough frequency for your type of hair, then you might end up with dry curls instead of shiny ones.
- Use a sulphate-free cleanser on top of your head too! The same goes for scalp shampoo; regular shampoos may leave behind residue that causes buildup on the scalp, which could lead to a flaky scalp or dandruff problems later on down the line (not cool). Stay away from these products altogether because we don’t want any bad side effects happening before we even start!
As you can see, the Curly Girl Method is a great way to care for your curls. It’s easy to follow and has many benefits that will help you love your natural hair even more!
