After already having written about my favorite shampoos and favorite conditioners, I think it’s about time I post an article about my favorite stylers for naturally curly hair. The above picture already reveals my four favorite stylers. To see why I like them and how I apply them to my curls, continue to read this post.
For me, a good styler is one that gets my curls to clump nicely, one that keeps away frizz and at the same time doesn’t weigh down my curls. Finding a styler that lives up to these expectations can be quite a challenge and most likely requires some trial and errors. I hope to reduce these for you by showing you my four favorite stylers:
Mop Top anti-frizz gel
Why I like it: My number one styler is the Mop Top anti-frizz gel medium hold – I absolutely love how it makes my curls clump and keeps them frizz-free even when it’s humid outside without weighing my curls down at all.
How to apply it: To get your curls to clump, apply it to your dripping wet curls without raking. Then scrunch your curls to get the styler evenly spread in your curls. If your curls look like they’re still wet after drying, make sure to scrunch out the crunch for bouncy and soft curls.
Watch this video to see how exactly I apply styler to my curls:
Kinky Curly Curling Custard
Why I like it: My results after using the Kinky Curly Curling Custard are similar to when I use the Mop Top anti-frizz gel, but as this product is a bit tricky to apply the results might vary greatly, which is why I usually prefer using the Mop Top anti-frizz gel.
How to apply it: Be careful not to use too much of this product – if you’re adding too much it’ll not only weigh down your curls but it’ll be difficult to scrunch out the crunch.
AG Re: coil
Why I like it: My curls become a lot curlier when using the AG Re: coil as a styler. In case you’re looking for an easy way to enhance your curls, I strongly recommend you to use this product as a styler.
How to apply it: Only use a small amount of it, as using too much leaves you with greasy-looking hair.
Curl Junkie Pattern Pusha
Why I like it: The Curl Junkie Pattern Pusha reduces frizz to a minimum while allowing my curls to from nice clumps. However it reduces my curls’ volume a bit, which is why I usually form a zig-zag-part to increase the volume just a little.
How to apply it: Apply it to your curls like you would any other styler, but make sure not to use too much of it as it’ll weigh down your curls.
