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!
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
- No Shampoo
- Avoid silicon’s, sulfates and anything that will coat and/or dry out your hair (i.e Isopropyl alcohol, wax, mineral oil, etc)
- No heat (i.e. flat ironing, blow outs. etc.)
- 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
After following those easy steps my results were really good!
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 🙂
