Several weeks ago, I borrowed this book from the library - The Curly Girl Handbook by Lorraine Massey. I was in desperate need of a haircut, was wearing a lot of ponytails, the weather was humid and atrocious, and I had read about this "Curly Girl Method" and figured I'd see what it was all about.
pinner said - Here is my new method of hair care! I'm loving it. I only slightly rinse my conditioner; and use silicone-free gel...let it dry (a bit crunchy) then "release the cast." I love the way my curls hold together now!
