On a rare occasion, I have a great curly hair day.
My hair is naturally curly, a state that I fought desperately during my early/mid teen years. I’ve tried to embrace it more in my 20’s and now wear it natural most days of the week. I always air dry my hair when wearing it curly, and it’s pretty much hit or miss on the frizz factor. But, every now and then (usually when I’m starting to consider cutting it all off), the curls come through for a great hair day and I decide I love them again.
Here are some of my personal favorite curly hair products and tools. I’ve tried a million sprays, gels, crèmes- you name it. The Aquage curl crème and sea salt spray are the only two that have stuck around in my cabinet.
Right out of the shower, I wrap my hair in a microfiber towel. You can find these cheap little turbies in any drugstore. They’re super convenient and help prevent frizz versus wrapping your hair in a bath towel. I always use a wide tooth comb once I take it out of the wrap. Brushes are a huge no-no for curly hair unless you want to look like Mia Thermopolis pre-makeover. Then I just scrunch it up with some of the curl crème and let it do its thing!
