Question: What are the best products for curly hair?
Answer: Having curly hair can be both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, curly hair is gorgeous, unique, and envied by all. On the other end of the spectrum, it’s very high-maintenance and can be a hassle to keep it in check. Many with ringlets either fry them straight or throw them up into a bun and pretend they don’t exist. Thanks to new haircare technology, however, you and your curls no longer have to suffer! The following products have been proven to be the most effective for curly hair treatment:
Before choosing a product, it’s important to know what curly hair needs to survive and thrive. Curly hair is naturally dry because the oil from our scalp doesn’t always reach all the way down the coils of our hair. For this reason, sulfate is the curly gal’s worst enemy. Sulfate is a chemical found in most shampoos, and it dries out hair and frizzes up curls. Luckily, many curly hair products are sulfate-free.
One curly hair treatment brand that reigns supreme is none other than DevaCurl. After having launched in New York City, DevaCurl has since pioneered the CURLvolution with their hydrating cleansers, conditioners, and styling products. Although their line is a bit pricey, their 3-step care routine will leave your hair looking and feeling like a million bucks.
Another great set of products? Paul Mitchell’s Curls. The king of hair care recently launched this line for curly girls who were searching for extra moisturizing and conditioning. The lightweight shampoo and conditioner help fight frizz while gently cleansing, and the styling products will sculpt your curls to look bouncy and crunch-free.
Both of these products will work wonders on your ringlets if you use them properly. Most curl care routines encourage you to only shampoo hair once every other day and condition daily. DIY tip: Avoid tying your hair up in a towel turban, as the rough texture may dry out and frizz up your curls. Instead, use paper towels or a soft cotton t-shirt and scrunch up your hair in it to absorb the water. With some moisture still left over, add your product in and scrunch your hair once again so your curls can absorb them better. Finally, let your curls air dry or use a diffuser to dry off your ends.
With these products and helpful tips, your curls will spring up and rejoice!
