Step 1: Cleansing Shampoo
Our cleansing shampoo is sulphate and silicone free, with less lather than your usual shampoo! Use this as your first step, 2-3 times a week or whenever your curls need to hit the restart button. Massage 2-3 pumps of this on your scalp, and as you rinse it off let it soak your lengths and cleanse them gently. *Do not rub the shampoo all over your hair in an attempt to keep them clean, shampoo is best used on your scalp and root area, the rest of your hair washes itself during rinsing!
We promise, your scalp will thank you for it!
CG Tip : Never shampoo your ends! Only cleanse your scalp, your strands will cleanse during the rinsing process.
CG Tip: Don't look for lather! Look for cleansing agents that are safe for your hair. Lather has nothing to do with a clean scalp, this myth will leave your scalp begging for oils.
STEP 3: Hydrating Deep Conditioner
Condition and condition some more
Our favourite step in this whole process, CONDITIONING!
Any curly, wavy, or kinky girl stocks up on her conditioners, and also knows that an oily scalp is only oily because our scalp is so dry that its producing oil itself! This sebum production can be related to a bunch of other reasons, but we think you should try keeping your hair well moisturised first, and see if that makes a difference to your scalp health.
Our deep conditioner has honey, an emollient which makes it an incredible hair conditioner that smoothens your hair. We also have Goji berries! Rich in vitamin A, therefore improving blood circulation to the scalp, thereby boosting hair growth and preventing hair fall. Nigella Sativa oil acts as a natural moisturiser that rids your hair and scalp of dryness. It lubricates and protects the outer layer of your hair and scalp with its richness in fatty acids and amino acids that maintain the lipid barrier on your hair! Get going!
Our hydrating deep conditioner is the last in shower step to follow! Rake as many pumps as you desire from your roots to your lengths and wash off in 5 minutes for a quick condition. To deep condition, leave it in for 20-30 minutes with a shower cap on, and a heat cap for added moisture, and then rinse off as per usual! Walk out of the shower with bouncy, hydrated curls with the help of 8 oils, butters and proteins. Use this conditioner to help detangle your curls before you step out of the shower, do this with a wide tooth comb/or your fingers.
We know just how important this step can be on wash day! Whether you use your gel first, or your leave in cream, we've made sure both work together to create the perfect CG cocktail.
Our leave in cream, with vanilla extracts, nigella sativa oils, and jojoba butters will give you slip like never before.
Our leave in cream is the first styler in our two step styling process! Use this alone, or with our gel once you are out of the shower, on soaking wet hair. Section your hair into 2 or more sections, and apply the product. Start with 2-3 pumps per section and keep adding water as you rake the product in. Use the upwards scrunching motion to see your curls form after applying the cream. Remember, do not wash it out! This cream is to be *left in your hair. You can use a styling brush to further spread the product evenly.
*Wavier hair textures can use the product by mixing upto 4 pumps in a bowl with water, and then applying it over your waves. Scrunching is vital in the process of revealing your curl pattern!
CG Tip: Scrunch in your leave in before your gel to make sure the cast is easier to break once they're dry. Also, try using a pinch of leave in to help scrunch out the crunch later on!
Last but definitely not the least, DEFINING!
Your hands will probably be aching by now, but this gel will make all of it worth it. Using a gel can be tricky, and the easiest way to have a successful washday is to make sure your hair is dripping wet when applying this gel.
Our gel is protein rich, and glycerin free! Perfect for any humid weather conditions, this cast will HOLD for days. We promise!
Pairing this with our leave in cream will give you the best results, because a good balance of protein and moisture makes your curls go BOING!
Glaze 2-4 pumps of this gel over all of your hair, in a praying hands motion* and then scrunch it in as you did with the leave in cream. This gel will lock in the moisture from your cream, and form a cast around your curls to keep them clumped, and defined, and frizz free!
*Once your hair dries, take 1-2 drops of a lightweight oil, and scrunch your hair to break the gel cast for fluffier, bouncier curls if you don’t like them too defined. This process is also known as SOTC- Scrunching out the crunch.
- No more dry brushing your hair! Only detangle your hair when it is wet, and has product in it, such as a conditioner/deep conditioner. Detangle with either your fingers, or a wide tooth comb!
- Never dry your curls with a cotton towel! Use either a micro fibre towel, or an old soft cotton t-shirt! Flip your hair upside down and cover them with the t-shirt, then twist the ends and bring it back to tuck in to your hair to create a turban, and leave your hair to dry for 10 minutes!
- Give products many tries before you give up on them! Try new techniques, and explore the curly girl world on YouTube and Instagram for more help.
- Need to refresh your hair? Add water and add 2-3 pumps of product in a praying hands motion over your curls once they are wet, and watch it reactivate your curls once more!
- Always sleep with your curls in a satin/silk bonnet, in a loose pineapple ponytail, or on a satin pillowcase.
