What is the Curly Girl method?
The Curly Girl Method, from Lorraine Massey’s book The Curly girl hand book is a hair care method that trades in damaging habits (like over shampooing and heavy silicones) for a healthy curly hair regimen. While this set of recommendations has been shown to have incredible results for many curlies in our community, you should always feel free to modify them to suit your hair!
What to avoid
- Shampoo more than once a week
- Heat styling tools
- Sulfates – namely sodium lauryl sulfate & ammonium laureth sulfate
- Non-water soluble silicones
