HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT HAIR STYLER FOR CURLS

Picking the right hair styling products for your curls can be tricky and truthfully, overwhelming. In a sea full of products, what’s the best hair styler for you? How does one choose a gel, cream, spray, or mousse? It’s a long list of options. Let’s figure this out together! What are your goals? Reduced frizz? Definition? Volume? Body? Shape? Landing on what you want your curls to achieve is a great place to start. And of course, let’s not forget your hair texture (this is a big one). Determining your hair texture is vital when finding products that work best with your curls. Remember, no matter if you have waves, curls, or coils, you can have fine, medium, or coarse texture. Knowledge is power, and we’re here to share our wisdom with you, so you can rock next-level curl confidence 24/7.

The good news is we have hair stylers and curl starter kits that focus primarily on texture.

STYLERS FOR FINE CURL TEXTURE

Fine curl texture tends to need help holding styles. To goal is to get those curls poppin’ with some definition, volume, and reduced frizz, all while ensuring you don’t weigh them down. FrizzFighting Volumizing Foam is an excellent reco for your hair type because it features our Airy Volume Complex and provides curls with fullness, touchable definition, and frizz control. Other notable options are Light Defining GelFlexible Hold Hairspray, and a great way to start caring for fine hair is The Essential Starter Kit For Fine Texture (perfect for on the go, too!)

STYLERS FOR MEDIUM CURL TEXTURE

Medium curl texture tends to appear full and hold styles well. We like a rich cream that serves plenty of moisture to help keep frizz at bay, provides definition, and a no-crunch finish — that’s Styling Cream — its Hydra-Definition Blend knows how to deliver! For strong hold, we fancy Ultra Defining Gel for you. It gives a non-sticky curl cast, amplifies shine, and bounce. The Essential Start Kit For Medium Texture is a must-have routine for curl care and styling (also ideal for traveling with.)

STYLERS FOR COARSE CURL TEXTURE

Coarse curl textures tend to appear very full and hold styles well. For you, we want to kick the moisture up to a mega level to keep those curls quenched and thriving. Meet SuperCream™ — your go-to holy grail multitasker with our Hydra-Definition Blend that gives smoothness, shape, shine, frizz control, makes dinner (kidding on that last one!) If you like a foam consistency, SuperMousse® will work nicely and pump up the volume. For hold, our strongest curl-locking gel Supreme Defining Gel is the one for you — that non-sticky curl cast fights frizz, defines, amplifies shine, oh my! And of course, for those wondering where to start, The Essential Starter Kit For Coarse Texture is the everything (plus, who doesn’t love a mini for their bag?!)
