  • There's some awesome advice already here! I started the CG method in January so I'm not super knowledgeable, but my main advice is just to stick with it! It's massively frustrating some days so you are not alone. I think we see the before and after …
  • BrittanyM said: Oh, if you've already got it and it's working, great! I bought it when I first started and the masque and leave in (except the shampoo) worked great for my hair (I've always dyed my hair too). But when my hair started to "heal" …
  • @BrittanyM Thank you! My hair is pretty damaged, I only just started the CGM (about 8 weeks ago) and I've been dyeing it for years. This leave-in was one of the first products I bought and I think it's working(?). My hair's so up and down I'm not 10…
  • @rabar Tbh, I haven't tried it much! After the issues with the Cantu deep co I've been keeping it super simple only using the products I started with at the beginning and I'll try adding the SM curl milk in when my hair's back to normal (whatever th…
  • @BrittanyM Thank you so much! I'll go back to what I've been using before the DC mask and see how it goes
  • @BrittanyM Thank you so much for your help! So from the beginning I've used Deva Curl No Poo to cleanse, which I believe has protein, and then I used up my Love, Beauty, Planet lavender conditioner (which I actually really liked although I know it's…
  • I haven't tried that one but I've had my eye on it! Let us know what you think if you do get it! I just got the Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus curl cream but I can't decide if I like it or not yet because my hair's still being weird after using …
  • @Therese1 @BritannyM @Guide 65 @erikawithac Thank you so much for all your help! Your advice has been so helpful. I got a new clarifying shampoo, the Tresemme one that I've seen suggested and used that yesterday and a DC with no protein, also a Tres…
  • @rabar @Guide 65 Thank you so much! I can't believe I didn't put two and two together about the deep conditioner! I'll leave it alone for a while and try a different one. I got some gelatin to try the diy in between as well. I think I've been nervou…
  • @rabar Thank you! It's so strange you should mention your hair lost curl definition because I seem to be having the same problem right now. My hair's gone super soft but 2 weeks ago I had mainly 2c with some 3a ringlets coming and all of a sudden my…

  • Guide 65 said: Welcome @Wallsey!  I'm so glad you're seeing progress!  As far as your DIY mask, honey and avocados have no protein, so unless there was protein in your conditioner, it wasn't protein overload that caused your hair to go stiff.  …

  • rabar said: That's so awesome!  Have you read the book by Lorraine Massey?  It's a wonderful book; she inspired me to start embracing what I have.  How are you liking the CG (Curly Girl) Method so far? Not yet! I watched the video she did o…

  • Hello! I'm also new to CurlTalk, and new to the Curly Girl Method. I started just over a month ago and already I'm seeing some curl appear which is encouraging! From what I've deduced so far I'm mainly 2c, with some 2b and 3a thrown in. There are al…
