The Ten Best Products for curly hair
Love or loathe your curls, we've got the right product for everything from a little smoothing to full-on frizz control
1. Aromachologie Repairing Shampoo
£13.50, L'Occitane, available nationwide
Angelica, lavender, geranium, ylang ylang and orange combine in a lightly foaming shampoo.
2. Smooth Cream
Kingsley's products smell lovely and cleanse gently, but my favourite is this leave-in moisturiser that lifts and separates curls.
3. Three-Minute Miracle
£4.99, Aussie, available UK-wide
Great for travel and if time is short. Tried and tested aloe vera and jojoba-seed oil tame "misbehaving, frizzy hair". Inexpensive, with a great bubble-gum scent.
4. Dry Remedy Collection
£18.50, Aveda, 0870 034 2380.
Possibly the most hardcore dry-hair product of them all, only for those with the most coarse and unruly hair. Full of organic wholesomeness.
5. Elixir Ultime
Another product that the dry and curly-haired would do well to keep close to hand. This versatile liquid lasts for months and can be applied pre-shampooing.
6. Integral Hydrating Mist
£15.50, Phytospecific, 0207 620 1771
Rich Hydration shampoo and conditioner may smell gentle but both are unusually potent. Instantly detangles and defines curls.
7. Liquid Fabric
£22.00, Shu Uemura, 0800 633 5021
Can be used whenever curls are losing definition to immediately revive them. Worth its slight downside of a residual crunchiness.
8. Relaxing Balm
£13.75, Label M Organic, labelm.co.uk
Used alongside the brand's lemongrass shampoo and conditioner, this non-oily, natural relaxer calms down stubborn frizz.
9. T/Gel Dry Hair Shampoo
£4.39, Neutrogena, tgel.com/uk
It's no joke having a dry scalp as anyone who has duly stripped the living daylights out of their tresses will understand. This makes an immediate difference to flakiness.
10. Olive Fruit Oil
From £17.50, kiehls.co.uk
The delicate fragrance of this range is worth the price alone. This instantly moisturises and is light enough to ensure curls aren't weighed down.
