Calling all wavy-haired beauties and curly-haired charmers! Your hair is beautiful. (You probably already know that, though.) And your hair is unique, too – it requires special care with products made specifically for wavy or curly hair. From gentle cleanser to hydrating cream, read on to discover our top picks for twisty tresses.

Instead, opt for a natural, sulfate-free shampoo – we like DevaCurl Low-Poo Hair Cleanser  because it’s free of sulfates and parabens to keep curly or wavy hair looking clean, shiny and vibrant.

2. Conditioner, conditioner – and more conditioner.  If you have wavy or curly locks, you already know that conditioner is key. But finding the right one is important – you want a product that provides moisture without weighing down your mane. Our conditioner pick for curly hair is Beautiful Curls Deep-Conditioning Treatment. If your hair has deep, natural waves, go for the lightweight Leave-in Conditioner with shea butter.

3. Hydrating cream: To keep those curls bouncy and the waves flowing, you need to make sure your hair stays hydrated. If moisturizing shampoo and conditioner aren’t enough, try Desert Essence Soft Curls Hair Cream – it’s enhanced with coconut oil and extracts to hydrate and nourish.

4. Heat shield: The best way to show off your hair’s beautiful texture is to go natural — but if you must use hot styling tools, be sure to protect your precious strands from possible heat damage. A few drops of Glonaturals Argan Collection Hair Serum can do the trick.

5. Reactivator: It’s halfway through the day and your curls have turned to frizz – or your waves are looking rather flat. To breathe new life into your hair, try a curl reactivating product, like FX Curls Up. If you’re dealing with a frightening amount of fly-aways, turn to Giovanni Frizz Be Gone.

More curly hair tips:

  • If you can get away with it, shampoo and condition every other day
  • Always style hair when it’s soaking wet.
  • Skip the brush and use a wide-set comb (or your fingers) instead.
  • Use the diffuser attachment on your hair dryer to promote even drying and fight frizz (after you apply a protective product, of course)
