We all remember the sleek, poker straight locks of the late 90’s and early 2000’s. We ironed our hair way too much trying to emulate our favourite celebrity style, only to achieve dry and damaged ends. Thankfully trends have changed and we are now embracing the more natural and low maintenance look. Bouncy hair is back!
You may have heard someone mention The Curly Girl Method. There seems to be a lot of buzz online about this revolutionary new way to make waves, curls and coils more manageable. It was developed by salon owner and stylist Lorraine Massey. In her best-seller, Curly Girl: The Handbook, Lorraine offers unique tips for washing and styling textured hair. These include eliminating harmful dyes, cleansing products and heat tools.
Massey is an advocate of letting nature do the work and suggests we avoid electricals, brushes, sulphates, fragrances, non-water soluble silicones and alcohol. Over time, these techniques balance the scalp and improve the structure of the hair making your curls behave better. Fancy giving it a go? Here are some of our CG-friendly product suggestions…
