       I would like to share my experience of natural curly hair which I hated since my young age. I fell in love with my hair 16 months before but I am more confident ever about it and comfortable too.I had very dense and frizzy curly hair. My mom used to oil, brush and braid my hair.

       When I tried basic curly hair products, then I started getting compliments for my hair. So I started following Curly hair method religiously. I have 3b/3c hair with low porosity. My hair loves DIY masks and Deep conditioning which changed my hair journey. I am learning new methods to style my hair.

When I was new baby for CG method, initially I tried some basic products which I listed below-

1. Pre-poo my hair by oil before shampoo. ( I like to keep my hair oiled for whole night)

2. Mamaearth shampoo used on wash days.

3. Conditioner and Leave-in-conditioner Loreal Paris smoothing conditioner. (This product is discontinued by Loreal now)

4. Hair Gel Pantanjali aloe vera gel.
