The 7 Best New Products for Curly Hair
Loose and wavy, tight and coiled, spiraled and springy: Curls come in many different forms. Which is why we've rounded up some of the best new products for every type and texture. Time to clear some space in your bathroom, y'all.
Vernon Francois Pure~Fro Hold and Shine Serum
This silky serum was created by the mastermind behind Lupita's hair and is made with six natural oils (from apricot kernel to tamanu) that work to smooth frizz and add shine. We particularly like the spray bottle, which distributes the serum in a fine, even mist.

DevaCurl Super Stretch Coconut Curl Elongating Styler
As any curly-haired lady can attest: Shrinkage happens. (Cue the jokes.) Lucky for us, this coconut-infused cream stretches coils to their maximum glory and leaves your strands smelling faintly of a tropical vacation.
Mizani Moisture Fusion Intense Moisturizing Mask
Parched curls will drink up this super-hydrating concoction of capuacu butter, argan oil and honey. Use this mask once a week for softer, more manageable strands.
Miss Jessie's Curls So Fresh Refreshing Spray
Consider this a quick fix for second (or third) day hair. Formulated with water and glycerin, it rehydrates dry ends with moisture and puts a little spring back into limp curls.
Miss Jessie's ($11)
Txtr by Cantu ACV + Tea Tree Soothing Shampoo
ICYMI: Cantu launched a line of products called Txtr (pronounced tex-ture) that are made specifically for ladies with curly or coiled hair. Our favorite? This clarifying shampoo that removes a week’s worth of buildup without stripping any natural oils.
Txtr By Cantu ($10)
Créme of Nature Pure Honey Moisture Whip Twisting Cream
This creamy blend of shea butter and coconut oil sets coils in place without leaving any annoying crunch or flaky residue behind. All you get are soft, touchable curls that pop.
Créme of Nature ($7)
Ouidad VitalCurl + Soft Defining Mousse
We recommend this airy mousse to our fine-haired friends. Unlike creams or gels (which can be a touch too heavy), this foam will deliver a light hold and tamp down frizz without adding any weight.
