Shopping for Curly Girl Method Approved products in big box stores like Target and Walmart can feel immensely overwhelming. There are just so many product options and so many labels to learn how to read. When following the Curly Girl Method sulfates, silicones, and parabens are always to be avoided. When you are new to the method and reading labels, it can feel frustrating, wasteful, and discouraging. 

That is why I put together this list using the Suave website as well as the Target and Walmart websites to help you begin your search for affordable CGM-approved products from your local stores. If you can’t find them in-store, then you can just click the link below to have them delivered. Now, that’s CGM done easily and effortlessly! 

Please note the products listed below are the current selection (as of March 2022) Suave offers according to their website. Some older products have been discontinued. Please remember new products come out all the time, and most importantly, product labels change! So, always be vigilant about ingredients.

I also pointed out if any products contain what’s known as the Itchy M’s, which can affect sensitive scalps. You can read more about Itchy M’s by clicking here.

Without further ado, let’s get to what you all really came here for, let’s find out which Suave Hair Products are Curly Girl Method approved.

Curly Girl Method enthusiast and educator. I have been on my own CGM journey for a bit over three years now. I take a scientific approach to the Curly Girl Method. I believe by learning Trichology (the study of hair and scalp) you can better understand your hair's needs and behaviors. This will help when you need to learn ingredients to read product labels. I research and write each and every article in this site. The information used and referenced on this website come from open access, peer-reviewed journal articles from publications such as the Journal of Cosmetic Science and the International Journal of Trichology.
