For those of us with curly hair who like to go natural, it can be hard to find the right products. Heavy styling creams and sprays can make curls go limp, gels and hairsprays can make them hard and crunchy and sometimes we have to go through product after product until we find one that helps with frizz like it says it will. If you’re tempted to just say “forget it” and head for the straightener, know that there are products out there that actually work. Besides, while you reach for the flat iron, someone with straight hair will be reaching for the curling iron. The grass is always greener on the other side. Or, at least, it looks that way. Don’t give up on your curls just yet. With these products your spirals will be bouncier, frizz will be a thing of the past, and you’ll never have to hear your hair crackle or crunch again.
While any hair type can benefit from a little moisturizing, curly hair depends on it. Gorge I’ll Make You Look Amazing Daily Spray($24.95 at gorgehair.com) lives up to its name. Just a few spritzes of this leave-in conditioner will not only add shine and moisture, but it will detangle as well! We all know how tangled curls can get. Other benefits this product provides include heat protection and the prevention of split ends.
There are conditioners for all types of hair and curly hair is no exception. The DevaCurl One Condition Ultra Creamy Daily Conditioner($19.95 at ulta.com) is there to add hydration to your locks. Ingredients like rosemary, lemongrass, olive oil, and hops will keep your curls looking and smelling good. DevaCurl provides a whole slew of products dedicated to curls.
Whether you’re looking to tame frizzy hair(no one likes dry, frizzy curls!), or you’ve always wanted shiny hair, Davines Oi/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion($37.49 at amazon.com) is here to help. The oil isn’t at all greasy and instantly adds shine and tames flyaways. It also helps with detangling. While you could use it every day if you wanted to, you don’t have to. It’s natural ingredients protect the hair from future damage and prevent hair aging so you’ll see results in no time.
Though curly hair can be styled many different ways, sometimes it just doesn’t want to cooperate. Instead of using gels that can make hair hard and crunchy(and sticky), use a cream, like Garnier Fructis Deconstructed Pixi Play Crafting Cream($4.49 at drugstores). It puts flyaways in their place while keeping the hair soft and smooth to the touch. Plus, like most Garnier Fructis products, it smells delicious!
