The steps to follow and the best products to show off breathtaking curls

Hair is one of the elements of our image that stands out the most and can mean the difference between looking flawless and looking more careless or even left, if the hair does not obey.

When we talk about hair types, it is common knowledge that between straight and curly, the second is much more complicated to tame and know how to wear on a daily basis. It is therefore not surprising that more and more specific products and treatments are coming out to learn how to manage it.

One of the best-known methods for curly hair for some time is the ‘Curly Girl Method’, which combines a few simple steps based mainly on the composition of the products used.

To give us an idea, a shampoo, conditioner or curl corrector adapted to the Curly Girl Method is a product without drying alcohols, sulphates, silicones, mineral oils and waxes.

What are the steps of the Curly Girl method?

  • 1) First cleaning with sulphate-free silicone shampoo: The first thing we must do when starting the Curly method is to remove the remains of silicones and other products with a shampoo that contains sulfates, but does not contain silicones.

The sulfates will wash away all the leftover chemicals and other products to leave the hair as natural as possible so that the curl comes out with its natural shape. We will only use this type of shampoo at the start of the method.

  • 2 ) Deep cleaning with a shampoo suitable for the Curly Method: after this first wash with the sulphate shampoo we will eliminate them completely.

So, every time we want to wash our hair, it will be with a product that does not contain drying alcohols, sulfates, silicones, mineral oils or waxes.

  • 3 ) Deep hydration with a mask or conditioner suitable for the Curly Method. Especially at the beginning of the method, one should use one of these products at least once a week so that the curl is naturally defined.

With the masks, it is preferable to leave them to act between 20 minutes and 2 hours (according to need). The conditioner, on the other hand, will help us seal in the moisture every time we wash our hair, as well as detangle it with our fingers or a wide-toothed comb. Conditioners can be with or without rinsing.

  • 4) Stylized / hairstyle: This last step is completely optional and will depend on how much time we have for our daily hair treatment or how we see how our hair reacts.

If we think we may be missing a bit of “push” for the curls to finish defining, we want the hair to be shinier and we want to get rid of the “frizz” completely, we can resort to after-wash and mask products such as styling creams, mousses, serums and gels (free of sulfates, parabens, alcohol, silicones, etc.).
