I feel like I always see curly hair girls on TV and Instagram with the most gorgeous, flawless curls! And I sit here wondering why mine are so difficult. But I have to remind myself that they’re just ordinary people who shampoo their hair just like me—or do they? Maybe their best kept secret is the shampoo they use! If you’re tired of frizzy, uncooperative, or dried out curls, try these shampoos that are perfect for curly girls!
1. Kinky Curly
$24.99 at amazon.com
I love all of Kinky Curly's hair products, both for during my shower and after my shower. This company knows how to do curly hair right! Their shampoo will get out all the buildup of curly hair products you use to maintain your mane every day. Plus, it's sulfate and paraben free which means it's gentle enough for daily use.
2. Deva Curl No-poo
$13.80 at amazon.com
When you wash your hair with No-poo, don't be surprised when no bubbles appear! This lather-free cleansing conditioner provides moisture to your hair instead of stripping it of all the natural oils. That way your hair won't look as dry and frizzy!
3. Davines Love Curl Enhancing Shampoo
$8.25 at amazon.com
This Shampoo does just what the name suggests! It enhances your curls overall by making them bouncier and more voluminous. This formula is designed to gently cleanse your hair so that it feels healthy and refreshed after each wash.
4. Hair Rules Daily Cleansing Cream
$59.99 at amazon.com
Hair Rules treats hair like skin. Just like you wouldn't use sulfate-filled laundry detergent to wash your sensitive face, you shouldn't use sulfate shampoos to wash your hair. Doing so creates an imbalanced system in which your scalp is oily and your hair is dried out and, for us curly girls, frizzy. While Hair Rules Daily Cleansing Cream works for all hair types, it's especially ideal for curly-haired women!
5. Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk
$8.99 at amazon.com
Carol's Daughter is a hair product company for curly girls. That's why they know that curly hair is really thirsty! But instead of giving it what it needs, many shampoos strip it of what it has. Hair Milk satisfies your hair's thirst for moisture; it's loaded with awesome nutrients like agave, biotin, and vitamin E.
6. Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo
$15.89 at amazon.com
My mom is a curly hair expert! After all, she raised four curly-haired daughters, so she must be! And she has always sworn by tea tree oil. Since curly hair has a tendency to get dry, tea tree oil will restore the moisture to it and leave it looking healthy and shiny.
7. Aveda Scalp Benefits Balancing Shampoo
$22.90 at amazon.com
A healthy head of hair begins with a healthy scalp. If you want thick, gorgeous curls, you have to nourish your scalp, too. So why not kill two birds with one stone? Replenish your scalp and clean your hair at the same time so that your hair looks and feels healthier after each wash.
8. Art Naturals Organic Moroccan Argan OIl Shampoo
$14.95 at amazon.com
This shampoo is great on all hair types but especially on curly hair. It deeply hydrates giving your curls more bounce, makes split ends and frizz vanish, and could even be attributed to hair growth. :)
9. CuRly Sexy Hair Curl Defining Shampoo
$25.50 at amazon.com
A safe cleanser that removes unwanted impurities from your hair without the damage. It softens and strengthens as it works to fight frizz, enhance curls, and more.
10. Shea MoisTure Coconut HiBiscus
$16.99 at amazon.com
Curly haired girls with dry hair will rejoice over this shampoo! Keeps your locks shiny and frizz free, this is perfect for those with thick, coarse, and dried out hair who want to change all that. Bonus-it smells amaze!!!
Curly hair is a pretty defining feature for many curly-haired women. So you want to make sure it looks as fabulous as possible at all times! And it all starts with the shampoo. What shampoo do your curls love?
