My current hair routine

My current routine is as follows. I wash my hair twice with shampoo so I can make sure it’s clean. 

Then I add conditioner, which I leave in for a few minutes before rinsing it out. When the faucet is off, I squeeze most of the water out of my hair, then I divide it into four sections. 

For each section, I use two pumps of LUS step 3. I scrunch it well and then mostly squeeze it dry with a cotton t-shirt. After that, I let it air dry. 

After about 2 to 3 hours, this is the result:

These are my curls after washing

Since it’s not good for your hair to wash it often, and curly hair is generally already somewhat dry, I try to only wash it once or twice a week. That does involve some dry shampoo to avoid a greasy head. Also read: How often to wash your hair? This is the liberating answer!

In terms of care, I like to use coconut oil as a hair mask. I apply it to the bottom part of my hair the evening before I wash my hair, so it can soak in overnight. 

Then I put my hair in a high bun, so I don’t lie with my face on greasy pieces of hair

Are my hair products CG-proof?

Time for the truth! Are my hair products Curly Girl-proof?

  • Moroccanoil Moisture Repair shampoo: no, this product is free of sulfates and parabens, but it does contain silicones. Too bad!
  • Moroccanoil Moisture Repair conditioner: the same applies to this as the shampoo.
  • Aussie Miracle Moist shampoo: no, this shampoo contains sulfates and silicones.
  • I+M Hair Care Wheat Germ Volume Conditioner: almost, the only “bad” thing in it is alcohol denat. To be honest, I don’t like it either, so that makes a difference.
  • LUS Step 3 Curly: yes, this product is free of sulfates, silicones and parabens.
    Ginger June Day Two dry shampoo: yes, this product is made from 100% natural ingredients.
    Coconut oil: yes, this is pure coconut oil and therefore totally CGM-friendly

Do you need protein or not?

Despite the fact that I almost never dye, blow dry or style my hair, it has a protein deficiency. Other reasons for this could be washing your hair with too hot water or cleaning it with harsh shampoos. 

Judging by the shampoos I use, it will be mostly the latter. So my best bet is to focus on adding protein to my hair, and less on hydration.

To treat protein-deficient hair, you need to use products with protein. Curly Girl-proof examples include wheat, silk, oats, quinoa and some seeds like flaxseed. 

The promise is that my hair will regain its shine and feel more resilient. I’m curious!

The hair products I'm going to include in my CGM routine

Yes, time to pick out new hair products! I now know what to include and what not to include. 

In addition, it is important to me that the products I buy are vegan. Not all the products I currently use are, because I’d rather not throw away products that are still good. 

So what do I end up with? The Love and Beauty brand is 100% vegan, cruelty free and mostly natural. Much of Bouclème’s curl care is as well.
