Garnier Fructis, they have a leave in conditioner that works really good!! What kind of shampoo are you using? That may be a factor.

I am right with you curl sista. I am having trouble too, past my shoulders now, it just tangles. So, for one, I’m getting an inch or two cut off since it’s so long. I have three months to go, so I figure it’ll grow out enough before the wedding.

And as far as product goes, I use Marc Anthony’s Strictly Curls. It’s called curling lotion. It’s a combo of leave-in conditioner and gel. I love it, but it might be being discontinued, I have a hard time trying to find it. And then after I put in product (gel/moose/whatever), I do a quick shallac of hair spray to keep the shape.

Otherwise, Neutrogena has a good leave-in conditioner, but I think it’s too pricey for as long as my hair is.

I wash, condition (comb with conditioner in the shower), leave-in conditioner, gel, hair spray, air dry.

How are you wearing your hair for the day?

I think what shampoo/conditioner you use makes a huge difference.  I typically use the cat walk for curls line.  I use the shampoo, conditioner, leave in conditioner and their spray.  Also if you blowdry, you should definitely use a diffuser.  Those are just some of the things i do and my curls tend to stay in order as they should 🙂

There are so many shampoo’s that are for maintaining curly hair. Just pay attention to the vitamins that some shampoos offer, the more vitamins, the less friz, tangle and dullness.

I love aveda’s products – they have a hair line for curly hair.  I just use the conditioner and curling gel (but the gel works well on its own too)!!

Garnier Frustis soft curl creme.  You can only buy it online now, but I swear by it.  I use a leave in conditioner and super moisturing shampoo – dryness is the enemy of the curl!

There are plenty of great curl products out there. I think in general, a heavy frizz treating conditioner is important, plus a curl specific finishing product, like a gel or mousse or cream. Most important though, and you probably already know this, is don’t touch your hair when it is drying or dry! Comb when wet + air dry = fantastic curls every time with a variety of products.

My go to product is Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious CALMING CRÈME however my hair isn’t super super super curly it’s very wavy with ringlets intertwined and has a fair amount of frizzyness to it if I don’t use the right product or blow it out. This stuff works great and while VERY pricey lasts FOREVER!

Any type of serum works for me. I don’t like to spend a lot on hair products, so I usually use Garnier Fructis or Frizz-Ease serums.

Try a lightweight gel to define your culs without weighing anything down. stay away from things for curly hair if you are trying to tame.

I don’t have curls, but my step-daughter-to-be uses these products to keep hers under control: http://www.devaconcepts.com/products/

Not cheap, but they work well and smell great.
