If you follow the Curly Girl Method, you need a good conditioner. But of course, every curly girl has different needs, which means it may take some trial and error to find a conditioner that works for you.
And while shampoo isn’t essential to the curly girl method, a lot of us prefer it to co-washing.
Here are 50+ curly girl approved shampoos and conditioners!
This page does contain affiliate links, which means if you purchase something using the product links on this page, I may get a small commission. This comes at no extra cost to you and helps keep this site running. Thank you!
Also, I follow the simplified version of the Curly Girl Method most directly derived from the Curly Girl Handbook. This means the only ingredients I look to avoid are sulfates, silicones, and drying alcohols. If you have more ingredients that you look to avoid, it would be a good idea to check the ingredients for yourself before making a purchase.
