We have over 8,000 hair products in our Product Review section, all thoughtfully reviewed by our curly community (that’s you!”>. We wanted to hear from our top reviewer, Laurabeth!
She is a NaturallyCurly veteran and her valuable feedback has helped many of us make smarter, more informed purchase decisions. We asked Laurabeth how she got started reviewing products on NaturallyCurly, and she said she’d always had “a no stone left unturned method of analyzing data.” Her search for the best hair gel and later conditioner led her to create thorough lists on CurlTalk with her reviews, which have been a go-to resource for many curlies ever since!
Favorite Curly Products
Because nothing makes my curls happier and more balanced after I freak them out with some new product.
A pre-styler primer before primers were cool. It preps every styler to have the potential to be curl-friendly, despite what hair type it was intended for.
A good, basic poo that’s gentle enough not to rile my cuticle but has enough umph to remove what’s needing to be pooed.
My standard clarifying shampoo, after rinsing with apple cider vinegar.
A solid gel for good curl encouragement that is no frills but does the job.
Amazing in heat and humidity, even in Florida’s salty air.
This gave me nice clumps and slightly boosted (definitely encouraged”> my curls while remaining soft to the touch and avoiding any coated sensation.
This gives me no/low frizz and all day lasting curls.
This produces clumpy curls and abounding ringlets.
The only mousse that I’ve ever found to have the hold of a gel but the happy curls of a mousse.
Despite the name, this was a great styling cream for curls in winter.
Either one of these provides a great winter leave-in for curls, clumping, and shine.
