Starting the curly girl method...

so I have type 2c hair from what it currently looks like but for 12 years, practically my whole life, I have been brushing my hair straight into a frizz ball so it didn’t look curly. So right now my hair has lost a heap of curl pattern and I’m looking to restore that. What am I to expect if I start the curly methods right now. Time for curls to heal? Greasy scalp?

To give you a current status, my hair has waves with some ringlets and I wash my hair twice a week with silicones and sulphates. So I just did my last sulphate wash yesterday to get rid of silicones. My hair was super frizzy but I’m excited for tomorrow when I start this method.

Also, has anyone ever done what I have before?

    Hi @Erika._.Rogers

    Welcome to Good for your for embracing your natural hair texture. It sounds like you haven't done any chemical treatments to your hair? If that is the case, pretty much, if you stop brushing your hair and start using CG-Friendly products, your hair will probably start clumping stop frizzing very quickly. When I was in high school, giving up the comb was the single best thing I did for my hair. Oddly, I was still using sulfates, but no silicones, and I had great hair.
