2nd attempt at Curly Girl
this is my second attempt at doing g CHM but j am doing my way. Last time I hated how gross my hair felt with all the products in it etc. and I had almost no results and my hair is naturally curly. So yesterday I washed with RepRenpure - Rosemary Mint Cleansing Conditioner which I like bc of the mint it feels nice on my scalp, like the tingle, but I feel like I need to use a ton to feel clean. then followed up with TRESemmé - Botanique Curl Hydration Shampoo which so far (1st time using) I liked definitely was helpful with detangling. and then after did HASK - Argan Oil Repairing Shine Oil Liked the smell and my hair didn't look greasy and the cantu - Shea Butter for Natural Hair Moisturizing Curl Activator Cream which I like, no cast or crunch, but I didn't want that, I'm sure you could get one. let my hair air dry up and I am liking the results I know some of these products may not be CG friendly, but I hated spending hours in the store and lots of money trying to find something CG friendly that worked for me. so I am hoping that i can stick with it and have better curls.

I grew my hair long and strong
I was always a heat styling person, I never embraced my natural curly hair and I always used to flat iron them my whole life. Until back in November I stopped using heat styling tools, especially flat iron and my hair is this long now!! My hair always grow fast, and genetically I know my hair can grow knee length. My mom had very long, luscious hair in her teenage and I got that inherited in me. Blessed! 😊 But seriously, what can help hair grow longer and healthier?? I believe the following tips and products can help: 1. Eliminate heat styling as much as you can. This is the first step in finally focusing and be able to invest your time and money in reversing the damage. 2. If you have curly/wavy textured, coarsed hair... start embracing it. It's okay to not have flat managed hair all the time. You can always use some nourishing oil like Moroccan oil to tame the frizz. 3. Incorporate Fatty acids,Omega and Vitamin E in your food. Fish is a great option but if you're vegan/vegetarian, Greens, whole grains and fruits are great option. 4. Maintain your hormonal levels with diet and light exercise. I'm not pointing out towards not eating junk (which I adore myself) and not exercising daily. Just a little for you to feel good is enough😊✨ 5. Use nourishing hair oils and masks to pamper your hair weekly. 6. Last but not the least, use gentle products that will help you with your desired hair texture and finish. I'm listing down the products I've neen enjoying and they're really helping me maintain my waves and curls so that I don't feel the need to heat style my hair often 👍 Also these products are my Holy grails now, they're very affordable and work amazing for curly and wavy hair types💖✨ @cantubeauty Shea butter Shampoo and Conditioner cantu - Shea Butter for Natural Hair Sulfate-Free Hydrating Cream Conditioner cantu - Shea Butter for Natural Hair Sulfate-Free Cleansing Cream Shampoo @cantubeauty Define and shine custard cantu - Shea Butter for Natural Hair Define & Shine Custard @pacificabeauty Pineapple Curls shampoo PACIfICA - Pineapple Curls Curl Defining Shampoo @igkhair Mistress hydrating hair balm IGK - Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm @thedrybar Prep rally detangler drybar - Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler @aveda Damage remedy daily hair repair AVEDA - Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair AG hair care Fast food moisture leave on conditioner AG hair - Moisture Fast Food Leave-On Conditioner

CG Method-Friendly Curl Defining Gels for Summer
Summer is around the corner in the Southern Hemisphere. In Australia, the weather is already warming up and the sun is getting shinier by the day ☀️ With a humid climate on the way, you’ll want to protect your wavy, curly and coils hair with moisture. You’ll also need a curl defining gel that can withstand the conditions. Here are some examples of affordable curl defining gels that are Curly Girl Method friendly for your upcoming summer adventures:   What is Curl Defining Gel? This type of product is designed to tame and define curls by trapping moisture in the hair and protecting it from frizz. This is all whilst enhancing your natural curly texture. Wavy Hair Textures: AA curl defining gel might be too heavy for waves. Try lighter styling products like creams or mousses. Try kms - Curlup Control Creme or MATRIX - Curl Please Super Defrizzer . Curly Hair Textures: Those of you with more defined and tighter curls can probably handle a curl defining gel. A gel like aussie - Instant Freeze Hair with Jojoba Oil & Sea Kelp Gel is great for humidity. You can also try BIOSILK - Rock Hard Gelee for another affordable option. Coily Hair Textures: Our coily CGM friends always rave about the cantu - Shea Butter for Natural Hair Coconut Curling Cream and ECOCO - Eco Style Olive Oil Gel for an affordable and long-lasting hold. Why are These Products Curly Girl Method Friendly? The curly girl method approves brands and products that don’t include harmful, drying and dirtying ingredients. These include sulphates, silicones, mineral oils, parabens, alcohols etc. You can use a site like www.isitcg.com to check your products ingredients! Pro Tips for Using Curl Defining Gel: 🖤 Most hair types will benefit from additional moisture during the warmer months. 🖤 When you get out the shower after washing your hair, wring some water out, take a blob of leave in conditioner, and squeeze it into your hair. 🖤 Scrunch from the ends up to the root. 🖤 Follow this up with a blob of curl defining gel, mousse or cream. Scrunch it into your hair to lock in the moisture and encourage a curly texture. 🖤 Towels can be damaging to curly hair so scrunch with an old t-shirt to dry off the hair some more.

6 HG curl creams💕Give U the Best Twist Out Ever👏🏾
The key to getting healthy curls is to keep your locks as hydrated as possible. That’s why the best curl creams have moisturizing ingredients. To help you narrow down your choices, here are 6 of the best products for curly hair that will make your type 3 or 4 curls look beautiful. Thanks to these favorite curlers to define natural hair, I can transform a frizzy head into a radiant spectacle of curls. Eden BodyWorks It contains natural ingredients, such as coconut oil, shea butter. This product works great on natural black hair! I did Bantu knots using this product and it turned out amazing!! Shea Moisture This is the only Shea Moisture product that I use from time to time. I don't use it too often because it contains silk protein additions and it can upset my hair's moisture. I tend to use curl definition creams in my shampoo routine, which usually includes a deep treatment. My deep hair care already contains hydrolyzed protein and this curl enhancing smoothie can harden my hair sometimes and I think it boils down to the fact that I have too much protein in my hair. Cantu With such an affordable price, Cantu's Coconut Curling Cream gives students a bang for their buck. Formulated without harsh ingredients, this thick defining leaves hair stylable and visibly brighter. In addition, it smells good! Be careful though, although it has a nice blend of added oils, it also contains protein which can be a problem if your hair is sensitive to it. Camille Rose  I use this after applying a leave-in conditioner to give my hair extra hold. On days where my hair needs extra help, I follow up with a bit of hair gel! Afro Sheen I bought this product because I wanted something cheaper than Shea Moisture. It’s very thick and over moisturizes my curls I think it does help to bring them out.  AS I AM Definitely worth the price! It is thick and very moisturizing. It doesn’t have to use a lot to get the full effects of it.

UNDER $10! Choose the right natural hair products from durgstore!
I have thick natural hair and as a young girl just out of university, I am always on a budget😰😰. After years of trying out different high end products and getting the same “OK” results, I started looking elsewhere. Below is a list of hair products I use faithfully that are all under $10. aussie - Miracle Moist 3 Minute Miracle with Avocado for Dry Hair RepairThis is a great deep conditioner for days when you can’t do the whole thirty minute deep conditioning routine. You can find Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle for as low as $3. aussie - Miracle Moist ConditionerThis is my favorite hair conditioner. I use this twice a week to condition and detangle my hair. aussie - Miracle Moist Shampoo . If you haven’t figured it out by now, I love the whole Aussie Moist line lol. ogx - Coconut Miracle Oil ShampooThis coconut milk shampoo by OGX is a steal. It smells like a tropical vacation in a bottle. It lathers nicely with only a small amount of product and leaves hair feeling soft and strong. The coconut oils moisturize and nourish your natural hair and the coconut milk and egg white proteins strengthen your relaxed hair. Eden Body Works Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner This has got to be the best deep conditioner under $10. After using this product on my hair the shine and elasticity was out of this world. If you are struggling with dryness and need a moisture boost I strongly suggest adding this deep conditioner to your regimen. Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Cowash Eden BodyWorks is one of my favorite brands and the Coconut Shea Cleansing Cowash is my favorite cowash. It’s one of the only cleansing conditioners that makes my hair and scalp feel squeaky clean. It also has pretty good slip, which makes detangling easy. It comes in a 16 oz jar, and you can typically find it for about $9. Curls Goddess Curls Botanical Gel Looking for a botanical gel to get your curls popping without flakes and crunch? This Goddess Curls Botanical Gel is your answer. This product will cure your wash and go woes, define your curls, and leave you with soft bouncy ringlets for less than $10. Sounds like a steal to me. Price: $8 cantu - Shea Butter for Natural Hair Deep Treatment Masque  I alternate between this and my Shea Moisture deep conditioning masque and it works just as good. I use it as least twice a month for thirty minutes at a time  and it keeps my curls poppin. Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo Trader Joe’s makes a great sulfate-free clarifying shampoo made with quality ingredients like peppermint, tea tree oil, and eucalyptus oil. A 16 oz bottle only costs $3.99. Maui MOISTURE - Heal & Hydrate + Shea Butter Hair Mask It has a really nice smell, it’s made with quality ingredients, and it can also double as a leave-in. My hair loves aloe vera juice, which is the first ingredient in all Maui Moisture products. The price ranges from $8 – $9, I caught it on sale for only $6.99 Have you ever tried one of them before? Share your ideas with me!

My curly hair products
My curly hair products
I have naturally curly hair and it was very hard to find products that fit the needs of my hair. I found these two products. The crème brûle whipped curl cream is a product that I have never seen someone use before, but I love it. It keeps my hair from getting frizzy and gives my hair the moisture it needs. It has organic sweet almond milk shea butter and aloe leaf juice. The cantu shea butter spray is what keeps my hair smooth and holds the shape of my curls perfectly. I like to spray it into my hands, warm it up and comb it through my hair with my fingers. I then scrunch my hair with my hands. This spray contains no sulfates, no silicones, no parabens or mineral oil. If you have naturally curly hair, then theses products are a must.
