Going Curly Girl!!!
I’ve decided to trial the Curly Girl method for 6 weeks to seen if their will be a noticeable change in the look and feel of the my hair.
For those who are unfamiliar with the Curly Girl (CG) method, it’s basically no longer using shampoo to cleanse your hair so that the end result with eliminate frizz as well as enhance your hair’s natural texture. For more information you can read all about it here
I’ve been researching the CG method the last three weeks and I’ll be honest, I wasn’t completely sold. All the testimonials I had seen were of women who had hair textures ranging from 2a to 3c/4a (maybe). My hair is rather kinky (4a/b) with strands that do no clump together. So if I were going to try this method, I’d have to approach it differentialy.
First off, my ultimate goal is not curl definition, it will be to eliminate frizz as well as increase the overall feel of the hair and luster. All my products are now silicon and alcohol free and I only use my fingers along with a wide tooth comb to detangle.
I will report back to you guys on a weekly basis on the progress my hair has made. Hopefully by the end of the six weeks, there will be a noticeable difference. The products and techniques I will be using during this period will be explained in a later post. Anyone interested in the process of start CG can again click the link above or check out another one here.
I’m really interested on seeing how CG will work on someone with very kinky hair, so wish me luck!
