Ep. 6 - Cleansing 101

Welcome back to CGM 411 - The Podcast for Everything Curly Girl Method!

Episode 6: Cleansing 101

Healthy hair requires two things to produce healthy hair growth and retention; cleanliness and stimulation, both of which can be covered in the cleansing phase of your wash day. This episode highlights the importance of the Cleansing phase when following the curly girl method. 

In the last episode when we discussed the DevaCurl Scandal, we broke down the science of the scalp, or should we say underneath the scalp, since we talked about the different layers. Which seems like a perfect precursor to learning the facts behind how to properly cleanse the scalp.

That’s why in this episode, , we break down cleansing basics like the difference between cleansers. We all hear those words floating around, low -poo, no-poo, co-wash, etc and we know it can all get a little confusing.

We touched on cleansing in Ep. 2, when it came to starting the Curly Girl Method. Now we are going to dig a bit deeper giving you all the details you should know to continue to maintain and grow beautiful, healthy hair including:

 

  • What is the difference between a clarifying shampoo and a low-poo?
  • What ingredients makes a clarifying shampoo clarifying?
  • What are low-poo and no-poo?
  • Why co-washing exclusively doesn't work scientifically?
  • How to properly cleanse naturally textured hair?
  • and much more!

Remember this podcast is interactive! Have a question we didn't answer submit them to cgmpodnews@gmail.com or comment them in the podbean comments section, and we will be sure to answer them!

And of course our giveaways!!!! Our current giveaway has for essential workers and has just ended. The winner is announced at the very end of the episode so make sure you stick around to find out if that winner is you!

As a thank you for your sacrifice, the winner will be featured on the Red carpet Curls website. Winner will also receive a heat cap and satin bonnet from Glow by Daye, Queen Perazzo's personal favorite! You're also going to receive an Inahsi Naturals Sulfate- Free Soothing Mint Clarifying Shampoo and Alodia Hair care Nourish & Hydrate Deep Conditioning Masque, which is Queen Monroe's favorite.
