Celebrate Curls With Curl Friendly Choices!
(go back to the Style Guide directory)Whether you have naturally kinky hair, soft curls, or loose waves you can find everything you need to keep your curly hairstyle looking great. Born without curls? These top tips will help you create more defined, longer lasting curls with hot rollers, curling irons, or flat irons with curved plates. From carefree corkscrews to ravishing ringlets, if you have curls, these tips are for you.
Humidity ProofingIn my opinion, carefree curls are always in style, but only if they look healthy and defined. If you have curly hair you already know that humidity is curl enemy #1 and there is nothing worse than a head full of frizzy curls. Start with a curl-friendly shampoo and conditioner to start your style off right! Keep your curly hairstyle free of frizz and fly-aways with some of my favorite frizz fighters:

Defining MomentsWhether your curly style is long and loose or tightly wound, curls need definition to look healthy. The less definition to a curl, the more unfinished and unhealthy it looks. Tousled, sexy curls are pretty, unruly, messy curls make people cringe. Coax your curls into shapely, sexy, curves with these best-selling curl definers:
Davines Momo Curl Enhancing Serum, Abba Instant Recall Curl Activator, Fudge Skrewd Curl Enhancer, Bain de Terre Anti-Frizz Smoothing Crème Recovery Complex (pictured), Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Curl Creme Wavy Woman.
Diffuse the SituationYou may think a diffuser is a curl’s best friend; but only if it’s attached to a great hair dryer. Built on the principle that curls should be pampered and not blown dry into a knotty mess, diffusers come in many varieties perfect for short curly hairstyles and long alike. Shorter styles dry faster, longer lengths take more time, so be sure your diffuser works well with your hair dryer to crank out enough airflow for the length of your locks. These hair dryers are sure to deliver power and pampering with or without your diffuser: Elchim Galaxy Hair Dryer, CHI Turbo Hair Dryer (pictured), Solano Platinum Hair Dryer, Babyliss Pro Ionic Hair Dryer Diffuser.
Mega ShineStraight hair seems to shine effortlessly, but it’s a myth to think that curly hairstyles cannot be super shiny too. You just need the right products…in the right amounts. Whether you choose a glossing styling spray, a shine enhancing lotion, or a polishing crème, just remember that less is more when applying any shine enhancer. Turn your shine up to eleven with these mega shine must-haves created especially for curly locks:
Terax Gloss Finishing Serum, Bain de Terre Hairspray Recovery Complex Anti-Frizz Shine and Hold, Abba TrueShine Shine Elixir (pictured).
