Let's jump in!
Our favourite shampoo for curly hair
Shampoo for curly hair is loaded with hydrating ingredients that infuse your locks with moisture and keep them soft and glossy. The best one for you will depend on your type of curly hair. Some of our favourites include Paul Mitchell Curls Spring Loaded Frizz-Fighting Shampoo that's free from sulfates, Davroe Smooth Senses Anti-Frizz Shampoo that moisturises deep into hair cuticles and Wella Nutricurls, another sulphate-free shampoo specially made for wavy hair. If you are finding that your hair is thinning, you could try a hair loss shampoo - we have a range from top brands like Kérastase, Nioxin, Paul Mitchell, and more.
Our favourite curly hair cream
Curling cream is another curly hair product that curly girls should keep in their arsenal. When it comes to hair curling cream, you can find creams made to define curls and creams made to hydrate curls, tame frizz and reverse dryness. The best curl creams will do all of this and more! We're loving Nak Hair Curls Creme, a nourishing and hydrating styling cream that gives definition to curls for bounce, body, and shine while enriching them with a vegan formula of coconut oil, aloe vera, hydrolysed rice protein and more.
Our favourite leave-in conditioner for curly hair If your curly hair is really dry and frizzy, a hair treatment should be added to your hair care routine. These are hair products for curly hair that use natural oils rich in amino acids, vitamins and minerals to penetrate deep into the cuticles and reverse the damage. You can find hair masks, hair oils, hair serums, hair creams and leave-in conditioners.
One of our favourites is Oribe Priming Lotion Leave-In Conditioning Detangler which is packed with mango seed butter for instantly detangling curls while moisturising, smoothing and protecting against thermal damage. Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream is a top pick that uses Argan oil to fight frizz and keep wavy and curly hair feeling touchable soft, and healthy.
Tips for caring for natural curly hair
Just by using the best products for curly hair and practising a curly hair care routine for your hair type, you can maintain gloriously defined, glossy curls that are healthy and easy to style. To get you started, we've put together some tips on how to care for your curls:
Don't over-wash your hair, as this can strip the natural oils from your hair and lead to frizziness and dryness. Use a dry shampoo on off days or co-wash your hair with water and a moisturising conditioner made for curls. If you find your hair is dry, use a curling cream to not only enhance your curls but to nourish, hydrate, and strengthen your hair.
Gently detangle curls using a wide-tooth comb and a leave-in conditioner, working from the ends back up to the roots.
Use a diffuser to blow dry your hair to keep your natural curl pattern intact or leave it to air dry.
Always use a heat protectant before using hot styling hair curling products and tools
Start styling when your hair is still wet, and remember to scrunch up your curls when using hair creams, gels and mousse to add volume and definition.
Tips for styling curly, textured hair
Curly and textured hair isn't the easiest hair type to style, but with a few tips and tricks, you'll be on your way to styling like a pro in no time:
Use a wide-tooth comb or paddle brush designed for curly hair to remove knots without breaking the cuticles. Always start from the ends and work upwards!
Slather on a rich hair mask once a week to quench curls and keep them free from frizz. Look for hair treatments with natural ingredients like coconut oil and grape seed oil, known for their intense conditioning properties.
Apply a leave-in conditioner or a curl-defining cream to your ends right before styling or using hair curling products to smooth frizz.
Try mixing a hair oil with your chosen curl cream or mousse, then apply it to your hair. The curl defining cream or the mousse will help to style and hold curls in place, while the oil will hydrate the curls and prevent them from feeling crunchy!
Touch up your curls with a curling iron. If some of your curls are a bit flat, spring them back to life using a curler with a thin barrel.
Add texture and volume to your hair with a sea salt spray for that just-back-from-the-beach look all year round!
Choosing the best curly hair products in Australia for you
The best way to find your holy grail hair product for curly hair is to choose the ones based on your hair type. If you have fine hair, go for a lightweight spray or mousse that won't weigh your locks down. If you have dry or damaged hair, choose an indulgent curly hair cream like Davroe Curlicue Curl Balm that detangles and moisturises with Avocado oil. Wavy hair types will love De Lorenzo Elements Barrel Wave, while Redken Curvaceous Ringlet Lotion is better for tight spirals.
Most curly hair creams and lotions are best applied to damp hair before styling or leaving to air dry
Hair products to tame your frizzy, curly hair
If you're sick of fighting the frizz every day, a good anti-frizz product can help you win the battle. You should start with a shampoo and conditioner for curly hair, such as Juuce Miracle D-Frizz Shampoo, which removes buildup, prevents breakage, and uses smoothing agents to combat dryness and tame the hair cuticles.
Frizzy hair is largely a result of dryness which causes your curls to absorb moisture from the air instead. You can minimise frizziness by using hair treatment products like hair creams, hair oils and serums made for detangling your locks, smoothing the hair cuticles and preventing split ends.
