Knowing the appearance of your curls before embarking on the Curly Girl Method is crucial. Depending on the shape of the hair you can identify up to 4 different types of hair: Type 1: Straight Type 2: Mossi Type 3: Curls Type 4: Afro Within the wavy-curly categories, subtypes A, B or C are distinguished according to the diameter of the wave and the spiral curling.

The basic steps Washing:
For a first approach to the Method, it is important to carry out the final wash, performing one or more washes with a shampoo that contains sulfates and not silicones. Then we will carry out from now on, washing without sulfates using the shampoo of our new line Curly: Gently cleanses the scalp and intensely moisturizes the curls thanks to the mix of valuable plant extracts such as Mango oil, Jojoba and Argan moisturizing and nourishing that strengthen the hair ensuring an intense shine and removing dirt, impurities and pollutant residues.

Post shampoo: Leave conditioner in curls, ie a product that unlike regular conditioners is applied to freshly washed hair and is not rinsed with water, used to provide extra conditioning to the hair, giving them moisture and softness.

Advantages of using a leave in:

-Moisturizes and combats frizz: provides more moisture and hydration than a normal balm, making the strands more elastic and strong. -Protects hair from environmental agents: helps protect hair from harmful effects caused by climate change.

Come ravvivare i ricci: Refresh: se vedi i tuoi capelli che non sono sporchi e non hanno bisogno di un nuovo lavaggio ma hanno perso di definizione, potranno essere rinfrescati ossia, utilizzando uno spray ravviva ricci ad azione idratante per recuperare la forma del riccio tra un lavaggio e l’altro. Questo riattiverà i prodotti utilizzati durante il lavaggio e farà restringere nuovamente i ricci.

Styling and definition: Modeling cream or curly gels, the choice of one product or the other will depend on the degree of tightness you are looking for; creams define and shape in a natural way, often can be more nutritious than gels and do not have a crunchy effect.
