How often should you wash your hair?
Which CG Shampoo is suitable for my curls?
A conditioner helps your hair to make it soft again. After using a shampoo, a conditioner or deep conditioner can make your hair cuticles close again. A conditioner is useful to use because it prevents tangles in the hair. You can also brush your hair if there is a conditioner in your hair. Focus on the lengths of hair with a conditioner, avoiding application to the scalp. How much conditioner you need for your curls differs per person, try to experiment with this by using a little more one time and a little less the other time. In any case, make sure that all lengths of hair are well covered with the conditioner.
CG Methode Pre-Poo
Pre-poo, it sounds a bit crazy but as a curly girl a pre-poo is definitely worth a try. A pre-poo is short for pre-shampoo. So, you use a pre-poo before you wash your hair. A pre-poo provides shinier, healthier and less frizzy hair and extra moisture. So win-win-win! You can do a pre-poo with different products, such as an oil or a deep conditioner. We recommend using an oil, which you apply to the scalp - massage in - and then let it soak in well. Then apply a shampoo and rinse the pre-poo and shampoo completely. The pre-poo protects your hair during washing, because your hair rubs together and with the pre-poo you have extra protection.
