Day 8


Ok right now as I type im deep conditioning my hair…that’s right I broke down and bought a deep conditioner lol but any ways I already notice a difference in my hair!!! I absolutely love this DC this going to be my staple product for sure!
In about 10 min I’m about to rinse this out and try my new leave in Its by EO and I have another EO as my RO (RINSE OUT) I love the one I used as my rinse out that also worked well!
Ok so I just rinsed the deep.conditioner out and applied my new leave in ok so far I love my new EO leave in it smells great! The only thing I dislike is I don’t have more slippage as I did with my tresemme naturals but my hair did take well with it and so did my LA looks gel which is the prefect pair 🙂
I’m loving my results now I just gotta get it to dry!

I also tried something a tad bit different and i still got the same results i got tired of having my hair wet for a very long time like my hair takes for ever to dry like seriously it takes 12-15 hours to dry tops! instead of having my hair soaking wet i just decided to have a towel and just sit it on my head for just a about 5 seconds on the back since it takes forever for that section of my hair to dry and then i did the front the same way but for about 2 seconds and then i started to apply my conditioner for as usual and if i needed some more water i just spritzed my hair with water…simple as that!

so this help my hair dry with like 4hours our less i always hated to go out with my hair wet fearing of getting a head cold…..and seriously head colds are no fun! i had one!…but i know since its summer i did go ahead and take my chances since where i live its 93 degrees outside and thats without the humidity! lol so im guessing its 98 with humidity lol

well any ways i now have a new method and im sticking by this i love this cause my hair dries in way lesser time! 🙂 my products that i use will be posted up very soon im not quite sure but im hoping by Wednesday of next week

I’m excited!


Ok so I meant to blog about this yesterday but I’m just now doing it lol but any ways on my day 6 CG Method my curls were more defined! I’m so happy…there were actually about three things I changed in my routine
1) I rewet my hair longer than usual
2) u put on a shower cap after I got my hair wet while I finished showering
3) took shower cap off  then re-wet my hair again but then I tired using cold water to finnish it off I heard this works decided to give it a shot
4) applied my conditioner then my gel then u plopped this really really helped with the frizz I also think this have me more defined curls

This little small routine change gave me great results! I was able to do 3 day hair! :)(:

My Curly Girl Method Journey


Hey!

My name is Antoinette i started the CG Method (Curly Girl Method) on the 21 of this month im really excited about it….and i absolutely love my but as a lot of people have doubt is the method for them…my porblem is getting the confidence

Ive always been natural so im no newbie of being natural ive had my hair pressed my whole life!

old picture though

Now the on the left  is a silly one lol  but any ways  that picture was taken last year and my hair length has been about the same and the one the right is a very old picture my hair is a  tad bit shorter

I decided to go the CG Method because I wanted a healthier full head of hair and i didn’t know how to achieve it i just assumed good products and a monthly trip to my beautician would cut it for my natural hair in way i did ok but i noticed i had heat damaged hair horrible spit ends etc.. so i googled some things I found out the CG method and looked on how the rules worked for a bout a week and decided to do it.

CURLY GIRL METHOD RULES

  1. No Shampoo
  2.  Avoid silicon’s, sulfates and anything that will coat and/or dry out your hair (i.e Isopropyl alcohol, wax, mineral oil, etc)
  3.  No heat (i.e. flat ironing, blow outs. etc.)
  4.  No styling tools, (i.e combs, brushes, picks, etc.)

Now the CG method states no combs but there are some that i have talked to who have used combs but WIDE tooth combs ONLY for detangling your hair when its wet and have conditioner it…The CG states that you should use your fingers like a claw like to detangle your hair…but I personally prefer using the WIDE tooth comb

Love my results!

After following those easy steps my results were really good!

My hair is sill wet I have tons of shrinkage to do lol

So after the whole wash & gone was done my hair was dry in the picture on the right…

Its not all perfect but i love it! but i have yet to figure out how to get 2nd day hair but after the my 2nd day hair all i wanted to do was pull it back in a ponytail and i did came out really good 🙂
