Best Hair Styling Products for Curly Hair
There is no ‘one size fits all’ for curly hair. So to keep it simple, if your curly hair is fine, I recommend Styling Mist for Volume. If your hair is thick, I recommend Styling Mist for Glossy Finish because this will help with curl definition and adding moisture.
Fine, Curly or Wavy Hair
Fine hair is more prone to tangles, so choosing a lightweight, detangling, styling product like Styling Mist for Volume is an excellent way of prepping your hair for styling.
Focus on getting body at the roots when styling fine curly or wavy hair
Once hair is prepped with the right shampoo and conditioner, it’s time to put those curls and waves to work!
Work with your natural curls and waves to give hair more body and movement. Focus on the roots where hair may be flatter. Use your fingers to lift your hair at the roots as you dry your hair.
Choose lightweight Styling Mist for Volume to add volume and definition. You can use short blasts of heat as you gently lift the roots. Turn your head upside down for extra lift and volume. The key is not to over-dry the hair as this can leave it flat. Switch the hairdryer off when hair is around 80% dry and leave the hair to dry naturally.
Use a diffuser when using a hairdryer, or let your hair air dry.
If you are using a hairdryer to dry your fine curls and waves then I recommend a diffuser. A diffuser attachment on your hairdryer disperses the air and prevents the heat from roughing up the cuticle. It reduces frizz and keeps your curls intact. Alternatively, you can air-dry your hair.
If you have thick, wavy or curly hair, you may well be the envy of your friends. And rightly so. That is the hair that everybody wants. However, I’ve worked with many clients over the years who just wanted to contain their curls and waves; some would keep their hair tied back, others using straighteners.
By tackling the things they didn’t like about their curly hair (dryness, frizz, tangles and lack of shine), I helped them to embrace their natural hair.
I recommend taking a simple approach. Instead of applying styling products immediately after washing hair, I recommend using some Hydrate and Shine Conditioner. When your hair is damp but not dripping wet, apply a small amount of Hydrate and Shine Conditioner through the ends and mid-lengths. Twist your hair and leave it to dry.
Once hair is semi-dry, spritz with Styling Mist for Glossy Finish. Another multi-tasking product, this lightweight mist, will give your hair definition and hold the curls. Once completely dry, shake your head and let those curls loose!
