With the Curly Girl method you can bring out your curls perfectly and make them a real eye-catcher. Of course, there are ecobio cosmetics that are perfect for this purpose!
Beautiful, strong and healthy curls are not easy to obtain. Unfortunately, curls tend to dry out and have a frizzy appearance similar to straw. The Curly Girl method is one of the best ways to solve this problem. It consists of an optimal treatment on natural curls, so that they become strong and remain so.
The goal is to get a natural curly hair, without using products with harmful ingredients. A real cure with natural cosmetics!
The Curly Girl method was developed by hairstylist Lorraine Massey in 2001 in her book Curly Girl: “The Handbook”, (although there have been variations before). The book quickly became a bestseller since in the early 2000s the straight hair was dominant.
Who is this method suitable for?
The Curly Girl method is suitable for all people with very thick curls. This type of hair is very sensitive and requires special treatment, but it can also help people with normal hair.
If you adhere to the method (or changes made, which have been adapted to the type of hair and hairstyles), it ensures natural curls with a healthy and natural appearance.
Why stick to this method?
Each person develops a specific routine for their hair over time. But most people don’t think much about caring for their hair. It may happen that the hair care routine used for years unknowingly damages our hair. For people with hedgehogs, this method is a good guide to doing something useful.
Things to avoid
In order for the curls to be really strong and healthy, some things must be avoided, namely:
- combs and brushes used on dry hair
5 steps for perfectly defined curls
The Curly Girl method is about taking care of one’s natural curls. In the first place it is necessary to bring back the hair to its natural state and therefore eliminate all the residues of silicones and other chemical products. Don’t worry: at first the hair can be even more fragile and break, because it takes time and patience to build a natural protective layer.
In practice, only three steps must be followed.
Originally, the shampoo should be completely eliminated and the hair washed only with conditioner so that they can be well hydrated. The conditioner should be gently massaged on the scalp and hair and then rinsed with cold water.
In the next step, a nourishing balm should be used to supply the hair with nutrients. Now the hair can be easily untangled. Important: this step should never be performed on dry hair. Afterwards the conditioner must be rinsed again with cold water.
- Drying and styling
As long as the hair is still damp, you can use styling and care products for the scalp, such as smoothing balms, simply by applying them on the hair.
To dry, wrap the hair in a shirt, a towel, (if you have dyed hair, use an old towel), or a microfibre cloth. Then let it dry. Alternatively, it is possible to use air-drying items such as hair dryers. Two things are important: never run your fingers through your hair or use the hairdryer on dry hair.
