Hello Curlies!!
Thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Giana and I decided to join this forum because I want to start embracing my natural curls. I'm starting the Curly Girl Method tonight, and hoping to get my curls' health back. I've done some research and think I'm pretty much prepared to start. I bought Suave Naturals conditioner and I use LaBella styling gel. I do have a question, as I can't seem to find the answer on my own... Is LaBella gel CG friendly? Also, what are some of your favorite products? And, any and all advice is welcome! TIA

    Welcome. :) good luck getting started. If you search around the boards you'll find lots of useful info.
    Is your gel the la bella lots of curls styling gel? If so, I checked the ingredients and it looks cg to me. If it's a different one, I don't mind double checking. :)

    Welcome! CG IMO is the ideal method for most curlies, or at least a modified version of it, it's much gentler on the hair all around, so I think you've made a great choice and I wish you much success! And please specify which gel it is so we can best answer your question.

    Thank you for the warm welcome! The La Bella gel I use is the Max hold. It's green. I didn't know they made gel for curls! I'm going to have to check that out.

    I just looked that one up as well, and the ingredients I found were cg. :)

    Can you please share how you like it? I've seen it at W-M but it was so inexpensive I wondered if it would even have any hold.
