Sometimes it's even called the curly girl method (CG) form Curly Girl: The Handbook, a book written by Lorraine Massey and Deborah Chiel which helps people embrace their natural hair texture.

How to style long curly hair: DON'T USE SHAMPOO! Use ample conditioner in the shower... curly hair is the driest hair type and needs to be moisturized. Scrub the scalp to loosen any dirt or build up, it will rinse out with the conditioner, but let the conditioner sit on your hair for a good thirty minutes before rinsing out. Let your hair air dry, or diffuse it, but before diffusing add a dab of coconut oil onto the ends of the hair to prevent split ends from the heat.
