Looking for a product that will define your natural curl pattern?

There are so many gels, custards and curl creams, that it can be confusing and frustrating to find the right one, so we've put together a list of our favorite top curl definers.

Remember: no two heads of hair are the same, even if they fall in the same curl category.

What works for thin 4b hair may not work for thick 4b hair, and what you thought wouldn’t work on your hair texture may turn out to be a holy grail!


Honorable mention to Motions Naturally You "Define My Curls Creme"....hands down the best I've tried so far, gives definition and brilliant shine on my 4C hair!
I define my 4c curls with a mixture of shea butter and other oils whipped together on wet hair. It gives me a friz-free well defined twist-outs
I wonder what the best product is for 2c hair type?.....I can never find a product to define curls :( HELP PLEASE.
Curl Junkie: Curls in a Bottle!!!!
I've had great success with LA Looks Sports Gel. It gives great definition and it's CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!
I am a cotton head nothing really works for my head..I use to hate my cotton hair but I have gotten use to it now...I just keep in condtioned really good and wear a afro puff must of the time.
I think that list needs Spiral Solutions Curl enhancing Jelly. :) I also like flaxseed gelee for this...and that folks can make at HOME cheaply! And customize as needed. Re:coil really works well for me in this regard.
right on - love Ouidad climate control gel and agree with the Tigi amplifier. both of these are sooo great for by 2C beachy waves. great recommendations!
Kinky Curly Custard works the best for my 4a hair. I've tried Miss Jessie's Quick Curls and Merengue and both worked ok, but didn't define my curls as well as Kinky Curly. Also Miss Jessie's products would leave my hair feeling a little dry because they contain "-cones" in the ingredients.
