The natural hair trend reigns supreme as untreated, textured strands continue to show up everywhere from the streets to the runways. The key to rocking the style is customizing your hair regimen according to texture, whether wavy, curly, or coarse.
“All textures have different characteristics, [but] the one thing that all-natural textures need is moisture,” explains Ron Lopez, L’Oreal Professionnel artist and salon owner.
That means curly-haired gals should opt for sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners and styling products that offer frizz-control and hold. Check out our favorite products below to help you create a natural hair care routine that works for you.
Rule number one is to eliminate rough body towels from your hair care routine. Opting for absorbent microfiber instead will reduce split ends, help prevent breakage, and rapidly speed up the drying process.
Vegan silk extract softens and detangles, while bond-building technology improves the quality of the hair shaft over time. With regular use, it’ll reduce frizz, minimize breakage, and soften coarse texture.
Hairstylist Jen Fassino recommends this luxury, CBD-infused serum, especially on days when you air-dry. After towel drying your hair, simply emulsify a few drops, apply to your strands, and voila.
The award-winning detangler smooths the hair cuticle, removes knots, and can be used as an in-shower leave-in conditioner for thick, curly hair types.
Peter Lamas, a celebrity hairstylist and hair care line founder, explains that it might not be necessary to shampoo more than once or twice per week when you use a nourishing formula like this one.
Another way to tend to your hair’s health is to apply a weekly treatment mask. We also love using this cruelty-free mask on our ends each time we condition.
With a mix of oils and vitamins, this curly hair gel styles and enhances shine on all curly hair types.
Wake up each morning with smoother, frizz-free strands when you sleep on this 100% silk pillowcase that prevents split ends and breakage.
Lopez recommends using this 1o-in-one spray as a pre-styling, thermal protectant. Apply it to towel-dried, damp, or dry hair to reap the benefits in each spritz.
Hair oils are life-changing for those with dry ends. Argan oil, castor seed oil, coconut oil, and soybean oil revitalize dehydrated strands, while Irish whiskey adds extra strength, shine, and bounce.
The certified organic and fair trade ingredients minimize frizz, define curls, and help hair dry faster. Plus, it’s cruelty-free and affordable.
