Hello, my fellow curly-haired bellas! Whether you’re a loud-and-proud kulot such as myself, or are slowly learning to embrace and flaunt your twisted mane, here’s a helpful list I got from L’Oréal Paris U.S.A. Their professional hairstylists have narrowed down our kind into three general types of curls. Which one are you?
Your curls are long, loose, and sexy. It’s easy to blow-dry it straight whenever you want a temporary change in hairstyle.
Star pegs: Victoria’s Secret models, Kat Dennings, and Charlize Theron
Best hair grooming tools for you: round brush, paddle brush, detangling brush, wide-toothed combs, blowdrier, big curling iron (if you want large, defined curls), and stronghold clips and pins
Best hair products for you: volumizing shampoos, moisturizing conditioners, spray-on hydrating mists, and shine drops
The loose twists and turns in your mane can go from small to medium, and your hair has a tendency to go frizzy when you brush it or don’t style it properly. Your mane is constantly thirsty; it craves moisturizing products. The weather can also determine the type of hair day you’ll have. Rain + humidity = frizz, while cold to normal season = good hair day.
Star pegs: Beyoncé, Sharika, Annalynne McCord, and Taylor Swift
Best hair grooming tools for you: wide-toothed combs (or no combing/ brushing at all!), ouchless hair elastics, hair diffuser, small curling iron (to help define curls when needed), and hair clamps
Best hair products for you: anti-frizz serums, hair oils or creams, deep conditioning treatments, moisturizing shampoos and conditioners, and leave-in conditioners
3. Coily. Your textured ringlets make you look like a doll on good days, but a crazy Amazon woman on bad hair days. It tends to frizz a lot, especially with the ever-changing weather. When styled properly, your corkscrew curls can make you stand out like a Hollywood star.
Star pegs: Rihanna, Alicia Keys, and Corrine Bailey Rae
Best hair grooming tools for you: ouchless hair elastics, hair diffuser, and hair clamps
Best hair products for you: moisturizing shampoos and conditioners, gel or mousse (but some coily gals such as myself hate them), anti-frizz serums, hair oils, deep conditioning treatments, and leave-in conditioners
What types of curls do you have or want to have? Which hair products do you swear by, my fellow curly bellas?
