Whether you’re a veteran naturalista, or are transitioning your straightened or relaxed curls back to natural, you know there are some things that work best for your curls. While good curl care starts with great self care (eating well, exercise, and lots of water), there are also things you can do to help keep your curls in great shape. Part of this is utilizing some of the wonderful products available on the market for curly girls.
DevaCurl Products: The DevaCurl line is beloved by curlies everywhere. The entire line is sulfate, paraben, and silicone-free, which as we know are ingredients that can be very damaging to curls. Heaven in Hair works wonders as a deep conditioning treatment, and does its work in 15-30 minutes under a plastic cap. For off days, use Mist-er Right to refresh curls.
Curly Tee Towel: Once you’ve embraced your curls, how you dry them is going to change as well. Terry cloth towels create friction, which leads to breakage and frizz. If you don’t want to invest in a microfiber towel, you can also use an old tshirt to help sop up excess water.
MorrocanOil Defining Cream: If your curls feel dry, dull and damaged, this product will bring them back to life. The argan oil works to nourish and fortify strands, and is also free of all the yucky ingredients curls don’t like.
Terax Crema Conditioner: This product is so great you’re going to want to use it daily. It will help bring dull curls back from the brink, improve elasticity and add back in shine. It’s a great product to use on curls that have been chemically treated, are in the transitioning process or are completely natural.
Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Style Milk: The Shea Moisture line never lets us down; it’s inexpensive, can be found at your local big box stores like Target and works wonders. This style milk has shea butter, coconut oil and essential oils, plus you’ll only need a small amount to get the job done.
