I started the curly girl method when I was 26 years old. Up to that point I thought my hair was straight and treated it like straight hair. My whole life, I always thought I lost a lot of hair in the shower. When I started the curly girl method, the amount of hair I was seeing in the drain scared me.
Does the curly girl method make your hair fall out?
The curly girl method shouldn’t cause hair loss. If you are new to using gel or other products with hold, it will seem like you are losing more hair in the shower because it doesn’t fall off your head between showers. This can cause your normal hair shedding to be more visible to you.
I now understand that the curly girl method never increased the frequency of my hair loss. Honestly, it’s not even proper to call it hair loss. It’s really just hair fall or hair shedding.
