Curly Hair Products

Is there a shampoo out there that will take your hair from straight to curly in one use? NO. However, many of these products do what they do very well. They are meant to add body and volume by stripping away the oils and dirt that can weigh the hair down, and giving some swell to the hair to "fluff " it up.  If your hair is naturally curly, but has been weighed down by product buildup, or is fine and thin in texture, these shampoos can vitalize the curl and give you maximum results.

Most of these shampoos & conditioners for "curly" hair contain volumizing ingredients and deep-cleaning surfactants, along with proteins and moisturizers to help keep the cuticle layer smooth and the hair shiny. These help to maximize curl, whether natural, or physically created by styling.  However, if your hair is straight and you use the shampoo as directed, you cannot expect to suddenly find a head full of curls awaiting you after the rinse. You still must style the hair to achieve curl where there was none before.

The good news is that products designated as "curly" will help to make your hair respond better to styling for curl, and are meant to make the hair hold curl longer. The results depend on the texture and wave of the hair from the start.

Styling products designated for "curly" hair are your best bet when you want to improve the look of your natural curls or want to style it curly.  The main ingredients in curl activators are humectants, most often glycerin. We love glycerin! Some activators are also formulated with another one of our favorites, aloe vera. Curl activators are great at retaining moisture so they can be used as a moisturizer, detangler, and curl enhancer. Just like anything in the hair care aisles, you have to be cautious about what you buy. Some curly products have the drying alcohols that can dry out your tresses.  You can make your curls shine with curl activators. These products can help give shape to your hair and tame frizz for a healthy, glossy look. They come in many types, so you can choose between curl-boosting sprays, gels and creams based on how you prefer to style or care for your hair.
