Is your hair texture coarse? If you have curls that appear full and voluminous, hold manipulated styles well, can tolerate (or be resistant to) high amounts of heat and hair coloring, then the answer is yes. Your texture requires more moisture, less protein, and smoothing, hydrating stylers work well for smoothing your medulla, the innermost layer of the hair shaft that you have that swells and becomes filled with air and protein. It's important to look at the ingredient list on your stylers. Here are some you can use with effective results on coarse curly natural hair.
