No two coils are the same, but all curly hair requires a mini arsenal of hair helpers. Experiment to find the products best suited for you, but always use products specifically formulated for curly hair.
Perfect coils start in the shower. A good curly-hair shampoo and conditioner will help give your tendrils a natural softness. After towel-drying, add a styling lotion that adds definition and fends off frizz.
When it comes to updos, don’t fight your curls—embrace them! Prep hair with a curl-plumping cream and then tightly coil sections of your hair. Pin sections up indiscriminately to give your style a romantic not-too-perfect vibe.
