Beginning on your curly hair journey does not have to be overwhelming. Check out my top 5 resources to help you in your curly hair journey below!
Naturally curly is THE site where most of us have started. From extensive information on all curly hair types, product reviews to a lovingly built community & forum- I usually find most answers here. Start with finding your texture type, porosity & density with this test.
I find Curly Nikki to be extremely clear with the purpose of ingredients & it’s effect on curly hair. It’s my go to resource for understanding complicated questions about ingredients.
Is It CG?
I usually copy paste the ingredients of the products & this site, & besides telling me if it is CG Friendly, it gives me a rundown of all the ingredients in that product I should avoid or enjoy! It also explains why. Handy when you’re living in a tropically diverse country like India where seasons affect the efficiency of a product!
