17 Best Curly-Hair Products, According to Experts
As much as we love summer, the hot and humid temperatures can wreak havoc on curly hair — causing frizz, dryness, and even breakage. Of course, there are a ton of hair-care products on the market that address these specific issues, but if you have curlier or more textured hair, there are methods and products out there that do all of these things while still maintaining the integrity and health of your curls.
We had POPSUGAR editors, as well as New York-based hairstylist Emely Miranda, weigh in on the best curly-hair products to use, not only during the summer months, but all-year-round. "Moisture is key," Miranda said. "Using a weekly hair mask and more cream-based products will block out humidity, lock in moisture, and tame curls." She also said that hair should be damp when applying products, as it "helps lock everything in as the hair dries."
