This video, Easy Curly Girl Method for Beginners, is a revamp of one of my first videos. The info is the same, but the video is better quality & much much shorter.
In this video I am only going to tell you the things you NEED to know. My advice is to start here and then learn and build on your routine from there. That’s what I did ❤️

SILICONES TO AVOID, investigate anything that ends in xane, cone, conol and col. There are a few fragrances that are ok that end in one (so confusing)Here are some common silicones:
- dimethicone
- amodimethicone
- cyclopentasiloxane
- cyclomethicone

I have a question for you...when you go to a salon for a trim. Do you bring your own product? or do you ask them to only wet your hair and not wash it?

Madeleine 6 kun oldin
I had beautiful curls when my hair was shorter. Now for some years I gave up. Whenever I try again, it's ok for several hours after washing, but then they become stiff and not nice. I like the curls, but I feel I have to be sooo careful with them, like, holding my head still if possible, no hat, avoiding wind, no pulling them with hand, no playing with it etc... It's exhausting :( Even here when I watch your video, I feel you hold yourhead still, maybe subconsciously protecting them from damage.. Or I imagine things at this point :P My question is - how permament is the effect we see in the video, on healthy hair with CG care? Are you carefull with touching your hair, playing with it, etc ? Are they easily "undone" ?

Ahhh...!!! Listen...i know thats maybe strange...but i had not much money and no shampoo anymore...BUT i had a lot dog shampoo and i take it for maybe 3-4 times...and i know now why my hair was so awesome with it🤣🤣🤣 it was without silicon...alcohol and all that other stuff... lool😂🤓

You have no idea how great short and to the point videos are for me...I am one of those that easily gets overwhelmed with too much info at once. The very cool thing about you that I have seen in other videos of yours, is that you explain the WHY part of the WHAT. i really dislike the info packed videos where all they do is tell me the whats and hurry through...i find myself having to seek for more videos to see if I can find out the why parts. Especially, when they never reply when I ask them to tell me why. You never make me go through all that BS. Thank you!

I am switching from blowing out my hair to wearing it wavy/curly d/t moderate ( feels severe)hair loss. I am down about 40% of my previous hair strands. I am a 2b /2c ...and y'all on these comment threads seem PASSIONATE. I need to wear my hair back sometimes. As a nurse, I cant just have loose waves all over the place hanging in peoples...ya' know ... nastiness. I have been switching from a ponytail to braided pigtails as it seems less damaging. I think putting the hair tight and the elastics is not good for it . How much will braiding my hair affect my ability to get my waves in more of a curl pattern when I can wear my hair loose ?

Hi Susie! I am one week into the CGM and have been binge-watching UZvid to get tips. You are my favorite, because my hair is very similar to yours and because I really appreciate how simple you keep things. It can get overwhelming - so many different products and techniques! I also have to admit, I love your accent :-) Thanks for all the help and inspiration!

Hi Susie, I've started the CG journey (but 'm wavy, not curly) since three weeks by now, but I notice that - some days , like today - mi hair are not silky and fluffy, the're freezy and messy, such as straw. Rough (forgive me for my English...). I wonder why. Could you give me some tips?... Am I wrong? Today for example I cowashed, then I condished, then put on a leave in conditioner and finally put on some gel. So what have I did wrong?....

My situation is that my hair is fairly healthy for the most part, and it will curl after a wash. However, the curls only last for that day, they get flattened out when I sleep, and even more so after I comb them out… any tips?
stephanie santos
stephanie santos 25 kun oldin
the only thing i'll say is that braids are actually really good for damaged hair. keeping your hair bundled (just not pulling on your scalp at all) keeps the individual hairs from being exposed to the elements. It's actually how i coped through my transitioning phase and it kept my damaged hair from getting worse haha i grew my hair past my collar bones when it had been stuck there forever

You actually have the most beautiful face it's so distracting
Simply said and easy to understand! I have a watched a few of your videos already about CGM, I really want to try it, but with all these specific products unavailable where I live, it's difficult to actually get going and trying it. I have never known what to do with my hair, over the past couple of years I've actually tried to take better care of it (as in not roughly drying it with my towel et etc) and I do have some curl in there - I used to straighten my hair once a week (as I only wash it once weekly anyway due to it being dry) I do have a question though - Does this mean I can never dye or straighten my hair ever again? Granted I used to straighten it to escape the frizz, but I would like straight hair now and then. Thank you!

Thank you for breaking it down for those of us who are confused and overwhelmed by how much information is out there. The basic gist is that we avoid sulphates, silicones, alcohol, using heat, drying with a towel, and hairstyles that don't support our curls. I can get on board with this! :D I'm excited to try out the products I've purchased to see which ones work best with my hair, but this basic outline has been so helpful.
Do u have any tips for severe hairfall?
52hello25 Oy oldin
Thank you for making this video! I'm definitely one of those people who get overwhelmed by how much information is out there concerning the CGM. I did a big chop back in April and switched to sulfate & paraben free shampoo in July (and also got a microfiber towel, which eliminated so much frizz). My hair improved a lot, but it was still a bit dry and the curls fell apart within two days of washing. I kept wondering what I was doing wrong, and your video explained it! I had no idea that I had to avoid silicone as well! I just checked my products, and they all have dimethicone :( Looks like I need to go shopping! Also, I love your accent! Super cute!

Susie, I've watched plenty of curly girl method videos but yours has so far been the best. I'm one week into the curly girl life, and this is the first time in YEARS that I've worn my hair down for several days in a row. I kid you not, I used to wear my hair in a ponytail every day cause I hated my hair. I'm talking at least 5 years. I actually love my hair since I started this method. You have changed my life, and I wanted to say thank you. 💕💕💕😭😭

im going to try this. my hair was damaged from dyeing it. My hair was always pretty much straight but the front of my hair (my bangs) is becoming very wavy and the back of my hair around the nape of my neck curls into Literal ringlets its so weird. Everything else is straight. I recently cut it short so i could begin an experimental phase until i find out what works so i can grow it long again. Thanks for this video it was super easy to follow
Josefina Avila Martinez
I have super straight hair I come from a long line of super straight haired people. I have a 3 year old daughter who has curls. Her hair is damaged. I don’t know what to do with it. I feel bad that I didn’t look into how to maintain it before. It’s all overwhelming

Hi Susie, (forgive me for my English...) first of all I'd like to thank you for your clear suggestions and tips. I'm Italian, and I didn't find anything so useful in Italian on Tube. I'm not curly, only wavy, and I need to wash very often my hair only because the sport I practice (running) 3 and 4 days a week. I already use a "bio" routine, since 6 years ago. But I haven't get a valid hair routine since I've found your videos. I only have a question (no: two...): 1) I dye my hair. I need to. Is it possible to use your routine aniway? and 2) How long does it takes to you to blow dry your hair with diffuser? I have to wash my hair early in the morning, (I usually train on 5 am...) and I always have so short time.... Thank you, Chiara
Rebecca Doyal-Meyer
Excellent points. Cutting out hot showers is going to be tough. I have long hair, so foregoing pony tails will be difficult too. I avoid heat styling. I have Hashimotos Disease, so I have had to go with an organic shampoo and conditioner; otherwise, my hair falls out. Thank you for the tips.

Im thankful for this simple video- my hair is naturally curly but for a while its been a struggle to get more then limp waves at the top and front (even though the underlayer of my hair curls fine!). Learning how damaging my current shampoo and conditioner is really is opening my eyes to how I can fix this.
My scalp gets greasy after one day .should I really go sulfate free? Worried it's going to get worse

I am so confused. I just started trying to go back to my natural hair. I’m Caucasian, and have fine hair, but a lot of hair. I keep reading/watching about CO washing. But I’ve heard that it’s not for everyone...i.e. people with hair like mine. I swim in the saltwater or chlorine everyday. My hair tangles so easily. I don’t want to lose hair from Co washing, as I’ve heard some people talk about. Help!! I’m so overwhelmed.

rebecca williams
Omg i have just discovered this method just now on UZvid and I'm so excited. My only worry is I'm vegan and I'm from the UK and i have no idea what product to use. My hair was so curly as a young child and over the years of brushing nd shampoo it's rare I get curls. I get tight ones underneath and i have always dreamt of having it curly again. Will it be easy to chop your hair short to get started? Xx

The problem I’m having with my curls is very confusing to me. I didn’t know I had naturally curly hair because I never knew how to take care of it, so it didn’t curl. But for the last 3 years, I haven’t used any heat tools (maybe like once for a wedding). I chopped all my dead and dyed hair off, and now my hair is the healthiest it’s ever been. It’s is so soft and silky to the touch and has a lot of shine. Still... it won’t curl properly!! The hair around my face curls beautifully, no complaints there. But the underneath of my hair is pretty much pin straight and the majority of my hair has like 5 different curl patterns ranging from wavy to super curl. I already do the curly girl method, I’ve tried twisting, plopping, doing all my styling upside down including diffusing, a plethora of different products and nothing helps. I can’t even wear my hair down unless I’ve done a whole styling routine which is so time consuming, just because my natural hair at this point is so embarrassing.

I've got dandruff and the only thing that helps is a special Shampoo that also contains sulfates. I dont want to change it, because every time I do, my scalp gets worse and itchy. Can I Do the curly girl method even with a sulfate containing Shampoo? I also try not to shampoo the ends of my hair....
