Whether you are newly natural or you’ve been rocking your curls for years you’ve probably heard about “The Curly Girl Method,” (CG Method). Depending on who you talk to, you can hear all different types of opinions about the CG method.
I have naturalista’s who are so strict about following the Curly Girl Method, it’s almost like a religion. Even if they have amassed a couple hundred dollars on “non-CG” products, they will gladly throw all of their products away and start fresh instead of spending one more day with silicons.

Hair grease and a kid in cornrows
The little girl that I see in the photo, that’s me. I was smiling from ear to ear. I doubt I was smiling about my hairstyle, but I was always happy to get braids. Nostalgia.

What works for one curly haired person may not work for someone else, why is that? Our genes, hormones, health, and environment all play a role in the type of curly hair you have.
