Low porosity hair

These products are advice and may work well for some people but not for others. The CG process is very personal and can differ per person. These products help you start or restart. Feel and see how your curls perform on these products. If you are not satisfied after using one or more products, try replacing them with another product with or without protein, or check the tips below.


  • Clarify your hair regularly, low porosity hair experiences more build-up
  • Co-wash can often not work for low porosity hair, test whether this also applies to you
  • Use protein products with small protein amino acids, hydrolyzed Silk
  • If you have fine hair, try to diffuse your hair instead of letting it air dry, as water can weigh the hair down the longer it is left in, resulting in saggy curls.
  • Avoid heavy products that have butters, castor/avocado oil in the first 10 ingredients
  • If you experience coarse hair after using protein, replace it (temporarily) with a protein-free product
  • If you experience saggy curls and your hair feels very soft, try adding a little more protein
  • Use a heat cap if you want a good treatment with a mask, at least 30 minutes.
  • Rinse your hair with warm water
  • Try wet-plopping to help your products absorb better into your hair.
  • Aloe vera, flaxseed and xantum gum in your styling products ensure that a film covers your hair so that it stays hydrated. These ingredients can work very well for low porosity hair.

Washing schedule

Start CG method with:

If you start with the CG method, we would like to keep it simple for you. Over time you will increasingly read that others do it differently, but we advise you to experiment with this once you have been in the process a little longer.

  • Start with a final wash (Every Day shampoo from Jumbo, or Daily Mild Shampoo from Kruidvat). You will not use this again unless you have used the wrong products, or suffer from build-up, or have dyed your hair.
  • Follow up with a mask (max. once a week)
  • Leave in conditioner
  • Gel, cream or mousse

Next wash day:

  • Co-wash or shampoo with conditioner
  • Leave in conditioner
  • Gel, cream or mousse

In between wash days you can refresh your curls if necessary:

  • Moisten your hair slightly with a spray bottle and reactivate your products in your hair
  • Wet your hands, put a little gel or cream on your hands and run over your curls with praying hands, scrunch and let it dry
  • Refresh with a mousse on dry hair
  • Refresh with a gel, cream or mousse on damp hair
