I just wanted to check in and let everyone know I’m officially trying the Curly Girl Method (CGM). I’m taking this seriously and not just picking up information from here and there from others and from the web. I’ve seen too much of that already and some are even passing on information that they don’t even know if it’s right! I wouldn’t do that to you nor would I do it to myself. Everything I discuss about the CGM will be from Lorraine Massey (and others in the book) and I will let you know if I veer off from the book.
I ordered the book at Amazon.com and it came about a week ago. I was excited since it was right on time for some new habits I planned on doing for the new year and actually for the rest of my life! I am drinking more water and taking Hairfinity vitamins along with doing the CGM. I was taking the vitamins off and on last year and saw results but since I wasn’t consistent I didn’t see as much as I should have. I also haven’t been drinking enough water so I decided to get the book, up the water intake and stay on my vitamins that have some great ingredients like Biontin and Horsetail Extract 7% Silica.
I’ve been happy with what I’ve seen so far. I’ve eliminated shampoo from my routine and instead I am using a cleansing conditioner AS I AM Cooconut CoWash I got from Sally’s a while ago. I got the tip from a local blogger, Mahogany Curls. She’s got some gorgeous hair and she really embraced this method. I decided to do this method since I’ve been dealing with dryness at the end of the night (every night) despite what I used! I knew something wasn’t quite right. Since I’ve started the CGM I IMMEDIATELY noticed additional softness at night and much more movement with my curls. They are even more defined with this method. I’m quite pleased.
Now, I’m JUST starting out so we have to see how this goes. I’ll be checking in from time to time sharing what I’ve learned and what’s ACTUALLY in the book. Now, of course I will be tailoring it to me but I will let you know what Lorraine Massey and others suggest and let you determine what is best for YOU!
I just gotta say once again I truly don’t like that there is so much information out there that is veering off from the original method and still being touted as what’s in the book.m Now don’t get me wrong….I truly believe many (if not all) of the bloggers and vloggers who are sharing the CGM mean well and are even well-informed. I just feel some have missed the important point of giving information that is accurate. No hate…honestly.
I do suggest getting the book and my book even came with a 24 minute DVD with step-by-step instructions on daily routine, clippings, trimming tutorials and tips. I haven’t checked out the DVD yet but I will and I will let you know about it when I have. The book was $10.98 before taxes and shipping and it’s a really easy read. I’ll be sharing more in upcoming weeks and months of pictures and recipes.
Next week I’ll discuss her very insightful chart on hair typing. I think you will be very pleased!
Take care of those curls Naturals,
