It’s taken years to embrace my curls and even more time to figure out how to treat them. Everything from start to finish – trim and haircut, weather, wash stage, shampoo, conditioner, curl products – EVERY SINGLE THING makes so much difference in how curls curl, style and lay.
I’ve sampled creams and cremes, gels and mousses, sprays, spritzes and puddings… and after all of that I’ve put together a round up of few of my favorite curly products – some tried and true and some new!
1. Wash: Garnier Fructis, Sleek and Shine Shampoo I personally like Garnier shampoo because it’s lightweight and clarifying, plus smells great and cleans the hair with little buildup. I use this once or twice a week to clean the hair. This particular shampoo comes up on their site as gluten free – which is important for me since I’ve had reactions from certain shampoos before.
2. Condition: Hask Keratin Protein Conditioner Hask conditioning products are usually pretty clutch. I love their Greek yogurt line (not pictured) and am obsessed with their hair masks, which I do once a week.
3. Protect: It’s a 10 Leave In Conditioner Lite Truthfully the little bottle pictured here is a sample size that I received in a subscription box. I’ve loved this product so much that I’ve used it after every wash (and will continue to) as a means of locking in moisture. Bonus is that it smells amazing!
4. Moisturize: Curls Blueberry Bliss Leave In Conditioner I’ll say this now, Curls is everything I love in a curly product. It’s lightweight, moisturizing, defines the curl and tames frizz, plus smells incredible.
5. Style: Marc Anthony Strictly Curls Curl Defining Lotion Marc Anthony is another line that’s tried and true for curly hair. I use both the shampoo and conditioner regularly, as they provide moisture to the hair. I’ve used several of their leave in products and curl definers and they’re all awesome! They make great deep conditioning treatments as well. FYI
