So what’s all the fuss over the Curly Girl Method?
For generations we have been told to smooth and straighten our curls, that somehow it’s wrong to have curl, or be ashamed to have them.
Well, I say “embrace them” and wear them proudly. So how do you do that? What are your options?
You may have heard of The Curly Girl Method and this thing called Co-Washing and wonder what it all means .So let me try to simplify it for you in basic terms with a little science to help.
Your hair is made up of 3 sections The Cuticle (external layer) the Cortex (where moisture and Keratin is stored) and the Medulla (where most internal part storing medications and illness)
When it comes to curls the more hydration you provide the Hair shaft the better your curl will be.
Now to ensure your can access the Cortex your hair needs to be free of anything that blocks the Hair shaft………So now you are asking why?
This means you need to use a curly girl recommended range of shampoo and conditioners that are Sulphate, Parabin and silicone free……… this is were the eye rolling begins but hang in and understand why it’s important.
You don’t go to a doctor or a specialist to seek advice then walk out and go to the supermarket to find antibiotics nor would you get a builder to fix your car or an electrician to fix your plumbing! So why spend good money on your hair not to follow your hairdressers advice? Why walk away from your Hairdresser who’s highly skilled and trained in all things hair to choose inferior products from a supermarket and un-trained staff to help you? It really just doesn’t make sense.
