Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt personally victimized by the curls on your head showing you a little too much sass.
You know what I’m talking about, right Ginas? One minute your curls are looking fierce and fine, and the next minute, they’ve started doing they’re own thing, just to mess with you!
Letting your locks roam free and do their thing is certainly the way we like to roll, but a girl can also use some help from a trusted hair product or two to keep things in check.
Without further ado, here are the 12 best products to help but the bounce in your curly hair!
We’re starting off with shampoo of course!
Vernon Francois is the stylist to curly girls Serena Williams, Solange and Lupita Nyong’o so you know you’re in safe hands with his products.
The Curl Command Shampoo is sulfate-free and packed with plant oils for extra nourishment. This includes baobab oil which promotes hair growth and mongongo oil which is known for its sun-protection properties.
Say hello to super healthy, well defined, bouncy and frizz-free coils, curls and waves
This Curly Girl Method approved creamy curl cleanser is like a luxurious bath for your hair.
Formulated with certified organic carrot seed oil, and sulphate free, this cleanser will gently remove dirt and oils while nourishing your curls and scalp with growth-boosting silk proteins,
anti-inflammatory botanicals, and coconut-based conditioning.
Your curls will be bouncy and happy, every damn day.
This hydrating curl shampoo uses moringa oil and shea butter to moisturise your hair and scalp, without weighing your curls down.
The use of moringa oil in this shampoo will not only nourish your scalp and fight dandruff and split ends, but it will also strengthen your hair follicles with minerals and vitamins.
Bondi Boost’s epic duo is perfect for wavy, kinky, and coily hair types.
Made with all-natural and organic ingredients, and free from nasties like silicones, sulphates, parabens and drying alcohols, this formula cleanses without stripping your hair of its natural oils.
Featuring hero ingredients like jojoba oil and coconut oil, the curl boss duo is designed to add moisture and de-frizz while activating the natural curl pattern.
Double shoutout for Vernon!
This serum adds a ton of shine to your curly hair, helps coils and kinks clump together as they dry and contains a blend of nourishing botanical oils, including:
- daikon seed extract to give hair a delicate slip,
- apricot kernel oil which is a good source of vitamins A and E and
- tamanu oil which helps to repair the structure of the hair, enhance shine, and protect hair color.
The Pure Fro Hold and Shine Serum moisturises and supports natural, healthy hair growth and can be used in wet or dry hair.
Aveda prides itself on products that are good for the health of people and the planet, so you know your curly hair is safe with this tube of joy.
The Be Curly Curl Enhancer intensifies curls, combats frizz and boosts shine on curly or wavy hair.
The wheat protein and organic aloe infused styling creme expand when hair is wet and retracts when hair is dry to intensify your curl or wave - magic!
Because you can’t talk about the best curly hair products and not talk about this bad boy!
The classic curling custard gives moisture, curl definition and hold, and brilliant shiny hair all in one product! As a bonus, it’s perfect for all curly types ranging from loose wavy hair through to tight coils.
Leveraging the humectant properties of agave nectar, the curling custard will help to style your curly hair without ever making greasy, crunchy or dry. Work it through wet or damp hair for the best results.
Suitable for all hair types, this leave-in conditioner will not weigh your curly hair down one bit.
Spray all over wet or damp hair to assist with detangling and to soften and strengthen your hair. The leave-in conditioner contains a strengthening complex designed to "zip-up" split ends while targeting weak areas of the hair, smoothing the appearance of damaged cuticles and helping to protect hair from environmental stressors and colour fade.
Not only will this product leave your curls smelling amazing, but it will also seal in moisture throughout your strands, keeping them hydrated and happy.
Say goodbye to every other styling product you own.
Moroccanoil curl defining cream is formulated for naturally curly and wavy hair and has intense conditioning and detangling properties.
The lightweight formula includes argan oil which smooths frizz and defines waves and curls without making your hair feel greasy, heavy, or sticky.
It also gives your hair movement while holding curls in place and offers your hair resistance to humidity, aka every curly-haired girl's dream!
All of you curly-haired Ginas will know the battle of trying to dry your curls with a hairdryer sans a ton of frizz and a loss of curl definition.
Enter: the DevaCurl DevaFuser. While a diffuser is every curly-haired girl's best friend, the DevaFuser is hands down the best - not to mention it’s shaped like a hand!
This diffuser provides 360-degree airflow to hug every single curl while drying your hair. The ceramic core and heat-resistant material lightly dries hair while maintaining definition in the curls and reducing frizz.
You may call me biased, but the people have spoken and I have to tell you Ginas, the signature silk hair turban will have you saying damn girrrrl every time you use it!
The inner silk wrap not only keeps your curls intact but it also keeps your hair smooth and frizz-free - perfect for wearing overnight. Meanwhile the soft organic cotton outer will hold your turban in place.
Finally, the Damn Gina signature silk hair turban is super stylish. Wear it on vacay to protect your hair from the elements, or on those days when you just don’t feel like washing your hair (but really need to).
And that’s a wrap (pun totally intended) on our list of the 12 Best Products To Help Put The Bounce In Your Curly Hair!
