Want to know what products are tried and tested as the best for styling curly, fine hair?

Curly gals gather around.

I know you’ve been searching for years for the miracle product to solve the problems associated with curly hair. After much trial and error and a beauty cabinet graveyard of fallen (failed) products – I, Miss Fancye have finally identified the top 5 products that REALLY work to hydrate, define and repair your unique and beautiful curly tresses.

Read on – so you too can give your hair the love it rightfully deserves.

1) Moroccan Oil Hydrating Styling Cream

Curly hair always needs moisture.

The follicular structure of curly hair differs greatly from that of the straight variety, requiring more hydration to look healthy. Curly hair will not have the natural shine that untreated straight hair has when the light hits it as commonly boasted in hair product commercials.

It is imperative that your curly locks are treated with a leave-in conditioning/hydrating/moisturising product after every time you shampoo and condition.

Moroccan Oil Hydrating Styling Cream is an excellent product consisting of argan oil the latest buzz ingredient in the beauty world originating in the Middle East.

Application: One pump of this delightfully fragrant, orange creamy product hydrates my entire head of freshly washed mid-back length hair.

1. Dispense product onto your hand, rub between palms and run over locks.

2. To ensure the Moroccan Oil Hydrating Styling Cream is evenly distributed use a wide-toothed comb and comb hair from root to tip, this also detangles your locks in a gentle way.

3. Leave to air dry or blow dry after applying curl defining product.

RRP: USD $32.00 / AUD $45.00

2) Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Defining Creme for Fine Curls

Curly hair needs definition.

Without definition, your hair will look a frizzy mess and we all know – that ain’t hot. Achieve those perfectly formed curls and ringlets with Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Defining Creme (there is also a formula for thicker hair).

Application: Best results are achieved when applied to wet, already moisturised hair. 

1. Flip bottle upside down and tap gently on a surface to bring the product to the push top dispensing lid.

2. Dispense an Aussie ten cent/US quarter coin sized to your fingers, rub together to spread product across hands and select pieces of hair and twist them with your fingers coating them in product.

3. If you want very defined curls – section your hair out first by fastening with clips, then apply product to individual twists.

4. Alternatively, you can flip your head over and scrunch the Curl Conscious Defining Creme into the hair, encouraging volume.

5. Leave to air dry or blow dry.

RRP: USD $28.00 / AUD $58.00

3)  Garnier Fructis Curl Cream-Gel and Sleek and Shine Anti-Humidity Smoothing Milk

Curly hair goes frizzy in humid weather. 

If you live in a humid climate like your Fancyeness, you are going to need something to combat the frizzies in uncontrollably hot, sticky weather.

The combination of these two affordable products Garnier Fructis Style Curl Sculpting Cream-Gel and Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Anti-Humidity Smoothing Milk will keep your locks frizz-free from the weather, hydrated and defined.

Application: 

1. Dispense an Aussie ten cent/US quarter coin sized amount of Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Anti-Humidity Smoothing Milk to your   fingertips, rub product between palms and apply to locks from root to tip.

2. Comb hair using a wide-toothed comb to detangle and distribute the product evenly.

3)  Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Hair Mask

Curly hair needs treatment to repair damage.

Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Hair Mask  is the perfect weekly treatment to repair the dryness, colour treated, weather/climate (such as air-conditioning) and heat effected damage felt by curly hair from everyday living.

Based on independent studies conducted on natural and relaxed hair textures of Latin and African-American participants using this product:

- 85% experienced an improvement in conditioning, detangling, and combing ability
- 96% experienced a reduction in hair breakage and shedding during detangling and styling
- 20% experienced an increase in hair strength.

I have experienced great improvement in the condition of my hair since using the Monoi Repairing Mask once a week.

The product contains rejuvenating Monoi Oil – a repairing Tahitian blend of the Tiare Gardenia flower, coprah coconut oil and bamboo water and protective hydrolyzed silk.

Did I mention it smells incredible AND is the sworn favourite hair treatment of  Kim Kardashian?

Application:

1. Shampoo hair, and apply the Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Mask liberally ensuring your hair is coated with the creamy product.

2. Comb through locks with a wide-toothed comb detangling the hair and evenly distributing the product.

3. Leave for five minutes and then rinse out.

4. For optimal results (and my personally favourite way of using this product), put on a shower cap or wrap your hair after applying the treatment and leave on as long as possible before rinsing out and styling as usual.

RRP:  USD $32.00

Available at Carol’s Daughter stores or online, selct Macy’s or click below for direct purchase


 

4)  Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner

This line of products is designed specifically for the unique curly hair textures of mixed race people.

The Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner works in the same manner as the Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Mask – only at a more affordable price point.

I alternate the use of both of these hair treatments and I am pleased with the results.

Application:

1. Shampoo hair, and apply the Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner  liberally ensuring your hair is coated with the creamy product.

2. Comb through curly locks with a wide-toothed comb detangling the hair and evenly distributing the product.

3. Leave for five minutes and then rinse out.

4. For optimal results (and my personally favourite way of using this product), put on a shower cap or wrap your hair after applying the treatment and leave on as long as possible before rinsing out and styling as usual.
