Happy Tuesday! So... You ever just... Give up on your hair for a few days? This before pic isn't from before I started CGM, it was just my day four hair after not refreshing for two days and only wearing my hair clipped up. It was rough! But it felt so good to wash it and bring the curl back! - Megan

The natural lighting in my classroom is 💯😍
.
My day 3 hair wasn’t great. It was kind of dry and frizzy. I think it was due to the waxes in the curl cream I used on wash day 🤦🏻‍♀️
.
School starts tomorrow and I’m hoping for an awesome hair day! Do you curlies plan out your wash days for big events or worry about your curls at work?
.
Honestly, I was CG at the end of the school year but I didn’t know what I was doing and I worried about my hair everyday. Feeling much more confident, but still a little apprehensive!😬#pleasehairgods

🌜😪🍍😴💤 Pineapple buff, silk pillowcase, no hair tie. Don't forget the dime sized squirt of @curls #blueberryblissleaveinconditioner smoothed in before the buff goes on to help combat dryness! 💦

Last but not least in my styling routine. I think I've made it clear how much I love these bad boys althought sadly I'm not sure why my hair isn't repsonding as well to the gel lately... My curls don't last as many days /: I still highly recommend this gel for keeping my hair soft & defined the first couple days while the B'LeaveIn Miracle Curl Plumper gives my ringlets an extra boost from time to time when needed & also makes them maaad soft. Pro tip they're cheaper on Amazon or often at buy 1 get 1 prices on Groupon.
💚
Ya esta claro cuanto que amo estos productos aunque no entiendo por que mi pelo no esta respondiendo tanto al gel recientemente: mis rizos no duran tantos días como antes... Todavia recomiendo el gel por mantener mis rulos suaves y definidos mientras que el B'LeaveIn Miracle Curl Plumper da un extra "boost" a mis rulos cuando necesito, ademas que les dejan taaaaan suaves. Los compro de rebaja en Amazon o Groupon.

I forget what I even deep conditioned with before this Maui Moisture mask, it's just that good. It's all natural, based on aloe water (which I find more moisturizing than coconut for me) & smells BOMB.com so... What's not to love? Another drugstore fav of mine that I faithfully be masking with once a week & always douse my hair in when I'm styling a bun or braids. As for the conditioners, I have yet to try the Shea one but I'm loving the coconut curl quench as a cowash.
💜
Me encanta esto acondicionador tanto que ni me acuerdo que estaba usando antes... Es todo natural y lleva agua de aloe en lugar de coco, y me parece que mi pelo prefiere al aloe. Huele riquisima y lo uso cada semana y también cada vez que yo me peino un moño o trenzas. También me gusta el acondicionador del Coco Curl Quench como un cowash, que todavia no probé del Shea...

I hiiiighly recommend this shampoo! I only shampoo 1x a week so it lasts me MONTHS for a drug store price & keeps my hair feeling moisturized & not stripped after use. Its main ingredient Jamaican black castor oil is known for its growth properties so that's another bonus.
🍍
Yo reeee recomiendo este champú. Solo lo uso 1 vez por semana y me dura MESES por un precio bueno. El ingrediente Jamaican black castor oil también es reconocido por sus propriedades de crecimiento para el pelo.

#2nddayhair is a simple refresh with water and AIF emulsified in my hands and smooth/squished/scrunched in for each section. I diffused on low, clipped for volume, fluffed, and #sotc with RR oil.🙌 I was hoping to not have to use any products to refresh today but my great #washday yesterday turned into a flop as the day went on. 🤦On wash day my hair really struggles to have any sort of hold. It is super fine…almost baby fine. I also made the mistake of not using enough hairspray (Pantene Airspray is #cgfriendly )…. Really thought I didn’t need it. #whatdoyoudo ?🤷 Not great wash days results are not the only reason why refreshing is so important to me. 1 I don’t have the time or desire to start from scratch every morning. I have twin girls and it is up to me to get them ready and out the door each morning. I need easy and fast. 2 my hair is damaged from years of bleaching, blow drying, straightening, and curling with irons. While my hair is fine and limp, it is also very dry and doesn’t need a ton of shampooing… I do co wash but that I would rather skip it if I can. 3 I have a strong desire to let my curls be as natural as possible, minimizing the kinds and amounts of products I use.

In the last few posts I’ve mentioned several #curlygirls I follow and recommended; however, one I consistently go to for tips, tricks, and advise is @lorascurlyhair . Besides Lora’s beautiful ringlets, #curlgoals, she is amazing at experimentation and testing things. I get so much helpful and positive content from her page. #microplopping anyone?

That being said, she had a great post a few days ago about extending your wash day. Some of the tips she’s mentioned before I had already implemented. But a new tip that is recent for her is leaving the cast in as long as possible.😱😱 Does this totally freak anyone else out? I would like to think I am not too vain of a person, but for some reason leaving the cast in ALLLL day gives me a anxiety and huge insecurities.It takes me right back to high school memories of walking around in crispy, crunchy, hard curls.😢 Does anyone else get anxiety about wearing the cast in public? Why? Tell me your story!👇

New wash day routine! ➡️ Do you style right side up or up side down? Do you use a wet brush for clumps? Lmk ⤵️
.
This is style I did not use a gel because I was trying out Rizos Curls, but normally I would finish with a gel.
.
I know most of you are skilled root clippers but I am not, so I just skip it. You would definitely get more volume from root clipping.
.
I got the idea of sectioning off my hair to use my wet brush from @wavycurlychronicles 💗

💇🏼 Curly Hair Cut 💇🏼
I'm booked in with my lovely hairdresser in 2 weeks for a colour but have been thinking I might go to another salon for a curly girl cut to try it out??
...
Some of my curls are limp and stretched and I wondering if a curl by curl cut will help them and I'm definitely not brave enough to cut my own hair yet!
...
I'm based in Yorkshire and I am really struggling to find a salon that will take care of my curly hair... can anyone help me please? 🙋🏼🙋🏼
...
I have figured out I'm definitely going to need to travel but don't want to be going for hours and hours... any suggestions of salons would be really appreciated!
...
I've been having a wobble recently about my floppy hair so I think this cut is the next big step to show progress? .

New July goal - get a new nose pin 😄🤣 #ootd Also, tried the #Ustraa Hair Cream (results pictured), which is a #pocketfriendly #cgfriendly hair cream. Here are my first impressions ⤵️
.
✅ The cream has enough slip and is adequately moisturising
✅ My curls do feel soft and light.
✅ It costs ONLY Rs.199
.
Here’s what I DIDN’T like 😐
.
❌ There’s hardly any definition and curls are much more loose
❗️The scent is very strong and masculine (it IS made for men 😄) but I don’t like it! I want to smell like a tropical cocktail and I’m not afraid to say it 🤣
‼️ it stung my eyes when I was applying the cream and flinging around my hair 😦
.
🌀I’ll try this again a few more times with gels to put out the final review soon so stay tuned! 😊

#SelfCareSunday I received a question on how I care for my hair so I’ll start with the very first thing I do on wash day: cleanse and clarify. The one thing that I’ve been very true to, even BEFORE I began my #curlyhairjourney, is using a very particular sulfate-free cleansing and moisturizing shampoo, called Come Clean by @officialkinkycurly. Some curlies believe that it strips their hair too much and find that the formula is too harsh for them. I, on the other hand, have yet to find another product that matches up to its reputation! The reason why it works so well on my hair is because I happen to have very fine hair that easily gets weighed down. Yes, there are a ton of great #CGfriendly shampoo cleansers out there, but I find that others tend to be so good at moisturizing my hair that it doesn’t give my roots the true balance it needs to perform well during styling, which is a clean slate. Speaking of being “Curly Girl Method” conscious, while the original concept calls for co-washing, this step won’t work for everybody out there. If you find that co-washing isn’t for you and that you can’t entirely give up shampoo, then that’s OK. This is a rule worth breaking. You need to do what you find is best for you and the results you want to achieve in your hair. I’ve been using Come Clean for 8+ years in case you want to know how loyal I am and it’s available online and at many retailers. If you need a product to address scalp issues, pH balance or buildup, this is the one to try. Even if you don’t have curly hair, Come Clean is usable for all hair types. Swipe to see a photo of it and you can also shop it via link in bio.

🌸Rizos Curls!🌸 Have you tried it?
.
My first impressions of @rizoscurls:😍Hi! Do you see those ringlets? I’m in love ☺️💗
.
My impressions of the products- .
🌸Shampoo: Cream-like, yet very clarifying. This shampoo left my roots squeaky clean (which I like and don’t mind), but I could still run my fingers through my hair after I rinsed it out. The scent is reminiscent of a traditional shampoo scent from my childhood. 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
🌸Deep Conditioner: The conditioner is thick and has lots of slip! It was thick but not heavy feeling. The smell reminds me of a lemon bar or a baked good. I rinsed out about half of my conditioner and left half in to retain moisture.
.
🌸Curl Cream: The Cream is like a thick lotion and feels like a conditioner in your hair. For me, it was very moisturizing and I was a little worried that it wouldn’t do much for hold. I followed @julissa_prado ‘s recommendation of diffusing and checked my hair at 30, 60, and 90% dry to see if it needed more cream. I added a dime sized amount after plopping, and a blueberry sized amount to ends and all over at 60 and 90% dry. Next time, I will try it with a gel, so I don’t have to use so much.
.
I can’t wait to see how my curls hold up over night and on day 2, and 3 ☺️ Overall, I am very impressed with all the products! I cannot believe I got these curls with just a cream! 😱
.
Thanks @rizoscurls for letting me try your product!💕

Hello 👋🏾 New Followers💛If you don’t know by now...I’m all about #healthyhair My #bigchop date was Nov. 2015 ✂️ Since then my #naturalhairjourney has been nothing short of amazing🙌🏾I know a lot of #Naturals dislike #shrinkage I embrace it, b/c it’s a sign of healthy #hair 👍🏾 #Naturalistas dislike frizz 🤦🏾‍♀️ I embrace the #frizz as well! Love me an old #washandgo 💕 I style my hair (wash and go) once a week. I #pineapple at night to preserve my #curls 🤗and I love trying new #products as long as they’re #curlygirl (cg) friendly People always ask “what are your favorite products?” 🤷🏽‍♀️ Now, I have some that I like more than others but when your hair is healthy, you pretty much can get a great lasting #washngo using any #cgfriendly or #naturalhairfriendly products. 🦋My tips to you for #healthyhairgrowth 1️⃣NO HEAT 2️⃣ Find a method/regimen that works for you and stick to it 3️⃣ Trim those split ends 💞 For more #hairtips checkout of my #YouTube channel: Just BRINA 🌸 Link in bio💋

Do you follow these 3 Low Porosity Rules?? ⤵️ Comment below, lmk if you have low porosity hair and which of these “rules” do or don’t work for you!
.
🌀I follow these 3 “rules”🌀
1️⃣Shampoo Regularly!
My hair gets weighed down with product build up easily! Low porosity hair benefits from regular shampooing with sulfate free shampoo on wash days and regular (monthly/bimonthly) clarifying. Cowashing just doesn’t remove the build up enough for me and most low porosity curlies.
.
2️⃣Deep Condition with Heat!
Having Low Porosity hair means it’s hard to get moisture into your hair strands. Heat helps open the cuticle and allows the moisture in! A heat cap, like the @thermalhaircare Hot Head,is great for this! I never skip heat when I deep condition!
.
3️⃣Skip Heavy Moisturizers!
Our low porosity hair doesn’t need extra thick butters and oils to moisturize it. Once low porosity hair gets moisture in, it stays. These heavy moisturizers only weigh it down! Light weight whips and creams work best for me!

Regrann from @aminamarie Cachos + chapeu= estilo e elegância 😍

Happy Friday curlfriends!! What are your plans for this weekend? It’s my last weekend of Summer! 😭
.
Day 3 hair is feeling a little limp, but I think that’s due to the prepoo oil treatment I did on washday 🤷🏻‍♀️
So I’ll be clarifying on Sunday for sure!

Thursday Confessions with Janelle: I’m struggling with the temptation to “do” my hair aka. Flat iron or curl - for major events. The picture on the left was one of my go-to looks before I started the #CGM . The picture on the right is from last week when I wore my natural hair out to bachelorette party. I knew pictures were going to be taken and shared, so I was nervous with showing this “new” ‘do - but I actually received so many compliments! The struggle is still real though - especially with some weddings coming up. .
.
QOTD: How do you do your hair for special events while still adhering to the curly girl method? .

#mycurlsarenotdemanding
Today I did not refresh. I just fluffed my hair out of the pineapple. 🙌🏼 I wouldn’t call that demanding or fussy...
.
@johnfriedaus The only thing that makes having curls difficult is not being taught how to take care of them. It’s difficult to be told how pretty you look when you straighten your hair or blow it out. And it’s difficult when society’s view on curls is that they are cumbersome, hard to deal with, or “demanding”.
