Best Curly Hair Products for Frizz Free Hair

Curly hair.  How I love and hate thee.  I love you when you work with me, but I hate you the other 90 percent of the time.  If I use the wrong product on my hair, it ends up either frizzy or crunchy, and neither one is attractive.

Curly hair tends to be dry, and it needs a lot of moisture.  When curly hair gets dry, it gets frizzy and unmanageable.  These are the best curly hair products that I've found for soft, manageable curls without going crunchy or frizzy.

It's a 10 Miracle Shampoo Plus Keratin

Most shampoos contain sodium lauryl sulfate because it's an inexpensive detergent and salt, but this is what dries out curly hair.  Unless you use some deep conditioning daily, SLS can make your hair very unruly.  Look for a SLS free shampoo like this one from It's a 10.  Bonus: It has keratin for stronger, healthier hair.

Palmer's Olive Oil Co-Wash

Co-washing is washing your hair with a conditioning formula.  It sounds counter intuitive to wash with an oil, but as I talked about in the oil cleansing post, like dissolves like.  Oil dissolves oil without drying out your hair like traditional formulas can.  One to try is this olive oil formula from Palmer's.
