CoWashing

When you start the Curly Girl Method you ditch shampoo. You'll start co -washing. Co - Washing is washing you're hair with a Curly Girl safe conditioner. Apply directly to the roots, scalp, mids and ends. You are not using the chemicals in shampoo to break down the dirt so you must do so manually. Focus on the areas that get oily. Massage really thoroughly for 3-5 minutes, its much longer than you think! Try doing so to at least two songs on the radio! Use your scalp massager to help too. Rinse all of the co-wash from your hair, it's dirty so rinse thoroughly. You may have heard that cooler water helps reduce frizz and it's TRUE - but you must Co - Wash with warmer water, then rinse with cooler water once your hair is all clean.

SCALP MASSAGER -

Swimming With Curls 

Wearing a swim cap is the ultimate protection, but I know you may not want to do that : )

If you struggle to get a swim cap on can put some conditioner on the inside to help slide it into place.

If swim caps aren’t your thing:

Prevention:

The best way to combat chlorine is firstly to saturate hair with clean water before entering the pool, because if its wet with clean water its less likely to soak up the chlorine.

Immediately after swimming wash your hair with warmer water to rid your hair of any chlorine.

Remedy:

Deep condition more frequently to help manage any drying.

If you feel the chlorine is building up in your hair either use our detox and or Co Wash Plus.

 How I cut my hair at home

I’ve been asked a number of times about how i cut my hair,  i do it myself,  I’ve had a few “hair raising experiences”.  Ive uploaded a video below to talk you through how i do it.  It is not intended to encourage you to home hair cut,  it genuinely is just sharing what i do. I had some pretty bad experiences with unicorn cuts etc so if you do have to home hair cut like we’ve had to with all the lockdowns or finances then i hope in these cases it help.
