11 Multipurpose Curly Hair Products
This mostly-natural product contains marshmallow root and slippery elm that provide slip for detangling the most difficult knots. It also contains lemongrass and cetyl alcohol to naturally moisturize coarser hair. Use it in the shower as your detangling product, and don't rinse it out because it is also a leave-in conditioner.
Formulated with champagne grape and caviar extracts, this serum makes for a great pre-poo treatment before cleansing hair and an oil for the LOC Method. It works on chemically altered hair, too.
This runny, lightweight cream styler works wonders on defining natural waves and loose curls. It also can be scrunched into freshly washed hair as a moisturizing leave-in conditioner.
If you want less frizz and medium hold that doesn't give your curls a stiff crunch, try this gel-cream. The glycerin will act as a lightweight (but effective) humidity barrier to prevent frizz, and it can be used as a styler to give your curls definition.
Made with keratin, monoi oil, peptides, and of course, shea butter, this frizz treatment is packed with just the right amount of hydrating ingredients for softer, more defined texture. It also contains botanical extracts that give distressed hair fibers more elasticity. Use it to moisturize your frizz-prone hair, and as a reparative treatment for hair that has lost its elasticity.
It's light enough for daily use and strong enough to last all day long. This water-based, moisturizing leave-in is packed with castor oil, olive oil, and detangling aloe vera juice. Use it to refresh second-day hair or to detangle freshly washed ringlets.
This styling butter will allow your twist-outs and bantu knot-outs to last long and decrease frizz. It also acts great as a moisturizer after co-washing curly or coily hair.
Once a week, apply this nourishing blend of castor, coconut, olive, and argan oils directly to the scalp as a hot oil treatment. It can also be used as an all-natural serum to defined braided and twist styles for sheen and moisture.
For those who are highly sensitive to strong fragrance, this is for you. Amla oil, African Wild Honey, and meadowfoam seed oil give this hair goodie an extra kick of nutrient-rich powers. It can be used as a rinse-out conditioner or as a pre-poo prior to washing.
If you're going to straighten your hair with a flat iron, use this to make your style last with minimal frizz, that's what the smoothing silk amino acids are for. It also has nourishing oils that will not leave your waves or curls feeling greasy and weighed down if used as a leave-in.
