What is the Curly Girl Method?  It is method devel­oped by Lor­raine Massey and Deb­o­rah Chiel to help care for curly hair.  The method entails fre­quent co-wash­ing, fin­ger comb­ing, wash-n-gos, no sham­poo, no sil­i­cones, and more.  While many curly ladies have caught onto the rou­tine, it is rare to find a kinky-haired gal who has, large­ly because of the reg­u­lar wash-n-gos and co-wash­es involved.  But on youtube, there are a cou­ple of kinky gals who are exper­i­ment­ing with the method and one who actu­al­ly has very sim­i­lar rou­tine.  These women are fea­tured in the videos below, and can per­haps be inspi­ra­tion to those with type 4 hair who desire to wash more fre­quent­ly and wear their hair loose in the sum­mer.

For a more detailed descrip­tion of the method, check out their book titled “Curly Girl: The Hand­book.  For a short descrip­tion of the no-sham­poo rou­tine involved in the Curly Girl Method, check out this arti­cle.

1. Though she didn’t exact­ly use the Curly Girl Method, Cyn­thiarf was the Type 4 Queen of wash-n-gos, fre­quent co-wash­es, and fin­ger comb­ing, which are com­po­nents of the reg­i­men: video tuto­r­i­al.

2. Dawnyele (who is dear­ly missed) was a tight­ly-coiled Type 4 who exper­i­ment­ed with the Curly Girl Method in the sum­mer of 2012. Check out her chan­nel to view her oth­er videos doc­u­ment­ing her Curly Girl jour­ney.

3.  Though not entire­ly Type 4, Whois­sug­ar has mix of tex­tures vary­ing from tight coils to loose curls and is worth post­ing for those with loos­er Type 4 hair.  She is also exper­i­ment­ing with the Curly Girl Method; you can watch her doc­u­ment her jour­ney on youtube.

Are you a nat­ur­al with kinky hair? Have you tried wash and go’s or the curly girl method?
