The Curly Girl Method

Updated on June 25, 2011

The curly girl method (also known as the CG method) is a method introduced to make sure that women with curly hair. I truly believe that curly hair is absolutely beautiful and that curls add a lot of sex appeal to a woman's look (and men too!) Most of us treat our curly hair as if it is straight, which is a grave mistake. The texture of curly hair is different and therefore, should be treated accordingly. Curly hair tends to loose moisturize easily and is quite sensitive to what is exposed to, so this method will make sure that your hair will stay hydrated with beautiful, shiny curls!

For this method, you will need SULFATE-FREE shampoo and conditioners. Sulfates tend to dry out hair, and that is the last thing that curly hair needs. Go organic! For an article that highlights an awesome organic hair care products, check out this article.

  1. Wash your hair with lukewarm water.

  2. Apply a bit of shampoo only on your scalp.

  3. Wash it off with water.

  4. Apply the conditioner all over your hair, comb your hair with a wide-toothed comb or with your fingers, and let it sit for a few minutes.

  5. Wash it off, and get another type of conditioner.

  6. Apply again, and let it sit for about half an hour.

  7. Wash it off with very cold water as this will seal your cuticles and give your hair a dramatic shine.

  8. Only use shampoo once every two or three washes. When you do not use your shampoo for a while, it will make your hair look worse at first, but once your hair gets used to it, you will be amazed by the results!

After washing tips

  1. After your hair has been washed, do not blow dry or comb it. Take a cotton t-shirt and use it to scrunch your hair upwards. This will give you beautiful, dramatic curls that are shiny and glamorous.

  2. Apply a great leave in conditioner. Natural oils are always fantastic leave in conditioners.

  3. Do not abuse your hair with harsh-treatments. Curls are beautiful, embrace them.
