Are these products suitable for any type of curl?

Our Curly Girl line defines the natural curve of wavy, curly, and afro hair.

What is the Curly Girl Method?

This is the name stylist Lorraine Massey gave to her method or routine for curly hair care when she wrote Curly Girl: The Handbook.

It is a method based on providing hydration and maintaining it so that curly hair loses its frizz and develops healthy curls.

Prohibited ingredients: silicones, sulfates, parabens, waxes, mineral oils, and drying alcohols.

Why is this method important for curly hair?

One of the big problems with curly hair is its tendency to dryness and frizz, which is mostly due to the use of sulfate hair products, surfactants that remove dirt from the hair and consequently the natural oils that are responsible for nourishing it.

When people notice their hair getting rougher, they turn to standard masks and conditioners, which contain silicones. The problem with silicones is that they are not water soluble, so they need powerful agents, such as sulfates, to be removed. If we try to clean them with a sulfate-free shampoo, it won’t work; instead, they will accumulate, and the hair will appear dull and lacking brightness, with “flakes” or “dandruff” that won’t be the main cause.

Can these products be applied to straight hair to get curls?

No, these products are specific for curly hair, since their goal is to define the natural curl, not to create it.

Are these products suitable for children with curly hair?

Yes: they do not change the structure of the hair but help define the natural curl.

How are these products specific for curly hair?

Their formula incorporates a 100% natural active ingredient derived from corn that improves curl resistance, controls frizz and protects from humidity.

Can the special curl conditioner be used on dry hair?

Yes: spray the conditioner on dry hair and then dry it with the diffuser to better define the curl

Is there any difference between a curl activator and a special curl conditioner?

No: they have the same function of defining natural curls. There are 4 types of curl activators on the market: gel, cream (most popular), custard and spray. Our special curl conditioner is the equivalent to a spray curl activator.

Why does the special curl conditioner have a liquid rather than a creamy or foamy texture?

The ideal scenario when dealing with curly hair is avoiding products that weigh down your hair or leave any kind of residue. That is why our product is formulated with a light texture, which promotes hydration and defines the curl without leaving any residue.

Can other types of products be used with the Curly Girl Method?

If we want curly hair to be hydrated, frizz-free and with well-defined curls, other types of products that do not comply with the Curly Girl Method should not be used, as residue could accumulate in the hair and the effectiveness of the products would be compromised.
