I hope all is going well with you and your hair! Fyecurls has been struggling a little! (You like how I talked about myself in third person?)
My hair has been dryer and frizzier than usual lately. It could be the cold, drying weather outside, but I dont think so. I'm not having it! If your hair is not acting right, dont keep doing the same thing, change up something! I have a Cassia treatment being mailed to me as we speak(more on this later), and I have decided to go strict CG Method (Curly Girl Method).
This is a method created by Lorraine Massey and I've read her book and seen many curlies have great success at it. The CG Method is when you eliminate the use of silicones, sulfates, and other products that can block out moisture and dry out your hair. The only products that I was using faithfully that had 'cones were Herbal Essence Hello Hydration and Aussie Moist Conditioners. I loved these because of the slip they gave while detangling. But these conditioners will be easily replaced by Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner and Suave Naturals Conditioner. I only cowash(conditioner wash) now. No more shampooing. Conditioner can remove dirt and products from your hair as long as you arent using cones. If you want to give this a try, you must first clarify your hair to remove the cones that you may have in your hair to start with a clean slate. So one last use of a sulfate shampoo will work for this. Then stick to natural and silicone and sulfate free products to wash and style your hair. This is supposed to help your curls maintain ultimate moisture. I recommend Lorraine Massey's book Curly Girl:The Handbook for more in-depth info about this. But there are several YouTube videos and articles on naturallycurly.com as well as other sites.
I am excited to see how my hair responds! You know I'll keep you posted!
