If you have naturally curly hair, you know finding a defined curl pattern can be tough. There are tons of curl care products available on the market and finding the right ones for your curl type can be quite the process. We'd like to cut out some of the legwork and frustration for you (and maybe save you a little money!) so we've compiled a list of our 5 favorite curl defining products. Remember, not all curls are made alike, and what works for one curl pattern may or may not work as well for yours! Before buying, consider your curl type, pattern and thickness.
Kinky Curly Curling Custard: For our girls with kinky type 4 coils, this custard will give your curls the hydration they need and the slip you crave for easier styling.
Ouidad Curl Quencher Moisturizing Gel: If you're a curly rocking thick, heavy type 3 curls, this product is for you! It's easily absorbed to give your curls the moisture they crave and help you get the definition you seek.
Miss Jessie's Quick Curls: We recommend this product for our curlies who have finer or thinner curls. You'll want to avoid heavier product, as it can weigh down fine curls and pull your pattern out. This product is quickly absorbed and gives great definition without a lot of weight.
Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie: This product keeps coming up for us, and it's easy to see why! If you have thick, heavy curls that need a lot of moisture, this product is for you. This will give your curls a soft, natural look without any of the crunch that can come with heavier gels.
Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper: This is a lightweight product that works to keep frizz at a minimum and helps curls keep their shape through clumping. If you have heavier curls, you might want to pair this product with a light gel to maintain definition and hold. This product works best for our curly gals with finer hair. Feel free to spritz with water to reactive the product between washes.
