I have a combo of 2a/2b hair (some bits are wavier than others), and I have the best luck with the Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe or Kinky Moves shampoos/conditioners (both are sulfate-free). I also had good luck with the Loreal Evercurl (I think that was the brand – it’s in a blue bottle for wavy/curly hair), but prefer NYM. I have a lot of fine, shoulder length hair, and I use a curl cream rather than a gel/mousse to define my waves – the ones I’m using now are from the same lines as the NYM’s shampoo/conditioner, but I also really like the TIGI Curls Rock amplifier – I just found it tended to make my waves crunchy so I’d have to de-crunch as my hair dried. I don’t have that problem with the creams I use now – I use a little less than dime-sized amount and rub my hands together to distribute evenly before applying to my hair. Sometimes I’ll use sea salt spray afterwards if I want a messier/less defined look.

I honestly don’t think you need to spend a ton of money on shampoo/conditioner. The ones I use now are $6 a bottle, and Ulta usually has them buy one get one half off or free. I get complimented on my hair a lot, so something has to be working!  Another trick you can try is drying your hair with a tshirt rather than a towel. This never worked for me, but other people have had success.

BeeG35:  I have super straight stick hair so I don’t have any personal recommendations. But I just wanted to pop in & say that Jessicurl is made in my town and the lady that came up with it is pretty amamzing & has some gorgeous hair. I hear rave reviews about her products all the time!

I have the Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe texturizing spray and I like it better than most of the expensive stuff I’ve tried. It doesn’t leave my hair crunchy or crazy dry and gives a nice beachy wave to it.
