I'm having trouble with the method...
I am thinking about going doing the natural routine, but I can't quite figure out the routine. Especially on washing and how to refresh it. My hair is about 2C/3A. And if I start the natural way can I still straighten my hair every now and then? I have bangs and like to blow those out.
Definitely pick up the Curly Girl book by Lorraine Massey. They might even have it at your local library if you don't want to buy it. There's tons of great information!
This is my favorite CG article. It's goes in depth into the method and has a long list of products. http://dormroomcurly.blogspot.com/2008/12/style-definitions-table.html
