I’ve decided to slowly start incorporating the Curly Girl method into my hair care routine. The CG method is also known as co-washing or no-poo, where you use a cleansing conditioner instead of shampoos, which contain harsh, harmful chemicals that are especially horrible for curly hair. The tip is looking for products that don’t have any ingredients ending with “cone.”
I’m Canadian and after several (ok, more than several) minutes at a nearby Shoppers Drug Mart, I found L’oreal Evercreme cleansing conditioner. It was the only cleansing conditioner I could find, but it seems to be working okay on my hair so far!
I’m going to use it once or twice a week, and shampoo only once a week from now on. I wouldn’t shampoo at all but I bleach my hair and use a purple shampoo to get rid of the brassiness. Once my hair is at the colour I want it to be, I plan on taking shampoo out completely.
