The Curly Girl Method, otherwise known as CG Method, was developed from Curly Girl: The Handbook, a book written by Lorraine Massey and Deborah Chiel which helps people embrace their natural hair texture. With that objective in mind, Massey described a new and revolutionary routine to get healthy, well-behaved waves, curls and coils.

6 Methods and Techniques for Defined Natural Hair


CN Says: 
"I get my most defined wash and gos using the praying hands method on soaking wet, freshly cleansed, moisturized and detangled hair. After finger detanglig in the shower with a slippery conditioner (like Aussie Moist), I rinse thoroughly and step out of the shower. I then apply my leave-in and/or styling cream (preferably a thin, slippery, easily distributed product) of choice to the left side of my head and then the right, using the praying hands method. I do my best not to disturb the curls that formed during the finger detangling process earlier. Finally, I carefully finger curl any frizzy pieces (especially in the front) and allow my hair to air-dry un-manipulated. For shrinkier definition, applying the product with my bass brush results in great curl definition. It's all about what' you're going for!"

Get the Most Defined Wash and Go, Ever!

 

When it comes to getting great curl definition that lasts, there are two important factors to consider: your product selection and application technique.

Even though I'm a product junkie with no rehab stint in sight, even I can admit that technique is more important. You can have the best curl defining products at your fingertips, but if you're not utilizing and applying them properly, you'll blame the product for the outcome of your style.

There are several methods for applying curl definers to hair, raking, smoothing, praying hands, and more. But there is one method that has been delivering the best results -- defined curls from root to tip that are plump, juicy, de-frizzed, and far from stringy ramen noodle style.
