My Modified CG ( Curly Girl) Method

Hey there guys,

Lots of you have asked me to share what I will and won’t be doing for the next three months with my modified CG method so here it goes:

What My Modified CG Method will and won’t include:

  • I will be Co-washing ONLY now with a Cleansing Conditioner ( SULFATE Free)
  • I will be Finger Detangling ONLY
  • I will be using Sulfate and Silicone Free ( the bad kind of Silicones, that aren’t water soluble ) products
  • I will be using Silicone Free Stylers
  • I will be using oils that aren’t to heavy on the hair
  • Oils I will not be using are Shea Butter, Mineral Oil, and Castor Oil (Nature’s Blessing is not CG Friendly)
  • My CG Friendly Oil of Choices will be Argan/ Coconut Oil
  • I will style in other styles besides the wash and go
  • I will allow occasional use of heat (X 2 a year maximum which I never exceed)
  • I will do Heat Free Stretched Styles
  •  I will continue Deep Conditioning with low indirect heat once a week

Okay guys so there you have it, as you can see I following the CG method for the most part but have made some modifications to suit my preferences. As I mentioned I will be testing this out for the next 3 months before deciding if I will keep this method or not. I will also be reviewing the various CG friendly products I try out and sharing my thoughts on them here on my blog.

Below are pictures of my curls after about 1 1/2 weeks using this method.

See ya Friday!

    I’ve been practicing the CG method for about 4 or 5 months now. As I told you on the scope I’ve really seen an improvement in my hair appearance. I was wondering what you’ve learned about the different oils. I used the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black treatment mask and leave in yesterday and my wash and go retaliated against the products lol!!! But my hair felt great. I’m not a Shea butter user and you mentioned that as being a oil you will not use. Thanks!

      Yeah the JBCO sheamoisture mask has Shea butter and castor oil so I’m no longer using it as castor oil isn’t CG friendly from what I’ve researched , and yes I’ll be sharing more info on oils soon 🙂
