The 5 Products You Need if You Have Curly Hair

Five must-haves for covetable curls!

Curly hair can feel like both a blessing and curse. When your bouncy curls behave they look amazing, but when they don't...well, that's a whole other story. Thankfully, by incorporating a few must-have products into your routine you can say hello to good curly hair days every day. Below we're sharing the five products you need if you have curly hair.

Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner

Check the label on your shampoo and conditioner. If the formula isn't hydrating or specifically made for curly hair, then it's time to swap them out. Great-looking curly hair starts in the shower with moisturizing formulas that lock in nourishment and can help to keep frizz at bay. Since curly hair can become dry and dehydrated quickly, using hydrating products on a normal basis is key.

Deep Conditioning Hair Mask

Since, as noted above, curly hair is quick to become dry and dehydrated, you'll want to make sure your hair care arsenal is stocked with moisturizing products. A deep conditioning hair mask is a must-have for curly locks and should be used at least once a week to help replenish moisture. Look for overnight formulas that get to work while you snooze.

Hair Oils

If you don't use them already, hair oils are a must for curly hair. Not only do they replenish moisture, they also help to add gloss and shine to your ringlets. Gals with fine curly hair will want to reach for lightweight oils, that while nourishing, won't weigh hair down. If you have thick curly hair, reach for richer oils that can help to tame your mane. We recommend placing a quarter-size amount (less if you have short hair) into the palm of your hand, rubbing your hands together to warm the oil and then running through from mid-lengths to ends of damp hair. Follow with styling or letting your hair air dry. This step gives your hair the moisture it needs to stay frizz-free throughout the day.

Leave-In Conditioner

The final must-have you need in your hair care and styling routine if you have curly hair is a leave-in conditioner. Since masks and post-shampoo conditioners are rinsed out, you'll want something to conditioner your strands afterwards. Leave-in conditioners help to nourish your strands all day long, infusing them with the moisture they need for your curls to maintain that covetable bounce.
