The Curly Girl Method is a method of curl care designed by Lorraine Massey.
She published the Method in her acclaimed book Curly Girl: The Handbook.
You can purchase a copy of the handbook with free postage here in the Shop.
Lorraine is the pioneer behind the curly girl movement.
As a hairstylist and curl specialist, she has changed the lives of thousands of curly girls and guys across the globe.
She's the founder of Devachan Salons, and co-founder of DevaCurl products.
She now works independently, teaching the Curl by Curl(TM) cutting technique and leading the movement to more natural hair care products with the launch of her new company, CurlyWorld (TM).
The Curly Girl Method consists of practising a consistent botanical hair diet that is free from Sulphates, Silicones, Waxes, Drying Alcohols and Artificial Oils.
It's about caring for the natural hair you've been born with, and this also includes the complete avoidance of high heat tools, mechanical damage and chemical treatments (blow-drying, ironing, straightening, brushing, keratin, relaxing, etc).
Here at Curls Only we use, teach and endorse the original version of The Curly Girl Method.
We believe that a better method for curl care does not exist. The Method works, but only when you do it properly.
Unfortunately, internet culture has substantially watered down the method and turned it into something else altogether.
If you haven't read the book yet, we believe that you should. The original version of the Method is there and we highly recommend it.
