When we think of caffeine we most think of coffee, tea or even soda. We also think of the negative effects they can have on our bodies and how we can cut down on our usage but just like anything else, there is two sides to a story.

Surprising for some, so let's explore exactly what caffeine and and how it helps our hair.

Washing our hair is an essential component for keeping it healthy. How you wash natural hair and what you use to wash natural hair are important to keeping it clean and moisturized but that's not all you need. You need tools to do it properly and to make sure your efforts are not counter-productive.
HOW TO PROPERLY CLEAN HAIR TOOLS
Most naturals wash their hair in the shower and keep most of their products in there at all times. It's just easier for many but even the sink lovers know they need essentials close by to make sure the process goes smoothly and effortlessly. Yes, we need shampoo, conditioner and maybe even a shower cap but there are a few more items that will make your wash routine even better.

I love the curly girl method as it forever changed the way I see and care for my hair. I stumbled upon this method back in 2012 and officially started it January 2013. I never looked back since because this became an ideal method for me as I was a sufferer of dandruff and dry hair. Those both dissipated once I started it and immediately noticed a positive change in my hair.
I was following it to the letter for about a year and altered some aspects over time since my hair needed something different but it doesn't mean I left the method. I love the CGM and subscribe to its core principles but I modified it to liking and have tweaked it to give me more freedom and a better wash & go.
