The Curly Hair Post

I received SOOOO many Instagram messages from y’all in response to my question asking for recommendations on favorite styling products for scrunching hair. THANK YOU!! I also received messages asking me t0 share the recommendations I received, so today I’m sharing a post on all things curly hair!

The Products

I probably received 30+ different product recommendations, however below I am going to break down the top 10 that were recommended again and again and again. I purchased the top 3 recommended products and will definitely report back after I’ve used them all.

1st Place: DevaCurl Wave Maker Touchable Texture Whip

2nd Place (a VERY close second): Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Soft Waves Sea Salt Spray

3rd Place Tie: Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave-Enhancing Spray tied with Garnier Fructis Curl Construct Creation Mousse

The Others: Aveda Be Curly Curl Enhancer // Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Scrunching Gel //MoroccanOil Curl Defining Cream // Paul Mitchell Firm Style Super Clean Sculpting Gel // ORIBE Curl Shaping Mousse // Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray

Tips & Tools

BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Dryer: This is the holy grail of hair dryers and totally worth the investment. It is lightweight and dries my hair so smoothly in a fraction of the time as my old dryer. I also use the diffuser attachment for my scrunchy hair.

Hot Tools Curling Wand: After my hair is dry I use my curling wand to touch up some curls and then run my fingers through them.

Microfiber towel : I received lots of tips to dry my hair with a microfiber towel. Another use for my favorite microfiber washcloths.

Tutorials: Freckled Fox’s Voluminous Curls & Curly Girl Method. I use a mix of both methods!

    How do you dry your hair on diffuser? Warm, cold setting, etc? I’ve tried and mine always turns out frizzy!

      Look up the pixie method of diffusing. Life changing for me!

    Yes yes yes to DevaCurl! It’s the only product line I’ve used that truly works and makes my naturally wavy crazy hair curly and definted. It’s pricey but absolutely worth it.

    Where’s the Aussie Sprunch Spray?! Hahaha! I was actually checking out the Garnier products at the store today, but ended up not getting them–I might have to go back and get some!

    I have pretty curly/wavy hair and I will rave about Deva Curl products to whomever will listen. I also use their “No-Poo” Shampoo and “One Condition” Conditioner. I sometimes use that Not Your Mother’s beach babe salt spray when my hair is longer and mostly in the summer, and also love John Frieda’s curling spray and mousse for more every day use.
