These Are the Best Mizani Products For All Hair Textures — From Coily to Straight

Apr 17 2020 - 10:40am

All curls are not created equal . . . and all curly hair products [1] aren't either. For example, if you have very curly hair that's fine and I have very curly hair that's thick [2], we would benefit from different products, even though we're both technically curly. Or, maybe you need help boosting volume (and that's a pass from me), whereas I have a dry scalp that needs extra hydration (and those things may make your hair feel oily).

Figuring out how to manage even the different textures [3] on our own individual heads is hard enough, but once we have that sorted, it's time to find something that can bring our curl types [4] back to their ideal state of balance. One of the top brands for multitextured hair is Mizani (which actually means "balance" in Swahili). Since around 1991, this brand has addressed not only the different curl patterns [5] people can have but also considers different hair types from straight to coily [6]. And, even though its products are most often stocked at salons, they can now be found at Sephora [7], too.

Mizani's hair care has a strong emphasis on moisture, so the right amount of hydration is added to your hair (and scalp), meaning it looks — and feels — its best. Learn more about the creams, conditioners, gels, and more found right at Sephora ahead.

Mizani Styling Foam Mousse

If you want a lightweight product that helps hold a curl but won't leave that dreaded crunch, this Mizani Styling Foam Mousse [8] ($18) uses moisturizing monoi oil and shea butter to keep styles shiny and frizz-free.

We love this for: A non-blow-dried, scrunch-and-go look for anyone whose hair is on the wavier side (versus coily).

Mizani Lived-In Texturizing Spray

This Mizani Lived-In Texturizing Spray [9] ($20) may not be able to make waves where there are none, but it can really build volume in all types of curls and coils without leaving hair sticky or greasy.

We love this for: The next-day boost it can give limp or crushed curls when it's applied and you shake your hair out in the morning.

Mizani Lived-In Edge Sculpting Paste

The frizz-fighting jojoba oil in this Mizani Lived-In Edge Sculpting Paste [10] ($18) offers definition wherever it goes, whether that's simply making sure your hairline looks smooth, or creating spiky, tousled looks (and a little goes a long way).

We love this for: Its long-lasting paste texture really holds it down if you've got untamed edges and any post-blowout flyaways.

Mizani 25 Miracle Milk Leave-In Conditioner

Mizani 25 Miracle Milk Leave-In Conditioner [11] ($8-$34) gets its name because there are 25 benefits in just one spritz like repairing damage, boosting shine, and protecting color (just to name a few).

We love this for: Its detangling of virtually any hair texture and the fact that this lightweight spray won't weigh down fine hair but is powerful enough to prime thicker hair, too.

Mizani 25 Miracle Cream

Mizani 25 Miracle Cream [12] ($22) ensures medium and thick hair textures still have defined curls and coils while also adding much-needed moisture (thanks to coconut oil) and UV protection, too.

We love this for: The heat protection and frizz control that helps even nonexperienced self-stylists achieve sleek, at-home blowouts [13].

Mizani 25 Miracle Nourishing Oil

Looking to boost your shine? Well, the Mizani 25 Miracle Nourishing Oil [14] ($22) can do that — plus it adds extra hydration to any deep conditioning treatment . . . and to your skin as well.

We love this for: The way it leaves the sleekest, nongreasy final touch in twist-outs and braid-outs, so those styles look oh-so smooth and feel oh-so soft.

Mizani Scalp Care Dry Scalp Shampoo

If your scalp is itchy or flaky, the Mizani Scalp Care Dry Scalp Shampoo [15] ($24) gets to the root(s) of your issue to relieve dryness and irritation with peppermint oil and cucumber extract.

We love this for: Detoxing a scalp to stop the scaling that leads to flakes and irritation, then also keeping it healthy especially when hair's in a protective style [16].

Mizani Scalp Care Dry Scalp Conditioner

Mizani Scalp Care Dry Scalp Conditioner [17] ($28) helps all different hair types and textures stay smooth, soft, and moisturized, while also offering relief to itchy, irritated scalps.

We love this for: Deeper conditioning when it's left on your hair for a few minutes — ideally under a plastic cap — so it can really seep in and the cooling peppermint oil and active zinc pyrithione can reduce dryness.

Mizani Scalp Care Calming Dry Scalp Lotion

After hair is washed and conditioned, sometimes there's still itchiness that lingers or returns (much) later lingering or returning itchiness. This Mizani Scalp Care Calming Dry Scalp Lotion [18] ($20) is infused with aloe vera, avocado oil, and eucalyptus to help with that.

We love this for: The easy-to-apply cap that easily targets the exact spot where your dry scalp is causing a tight feeling or itchiness.

Mizani True Textures Moisture Replenish Shampoo

This Mizani True Textures Moisture Replenish Shampoo [19] ($18) is packed with antioxidant-rich oils that make sure hair stays hydrated (and your natural curl pattern undisturbed) while dirt, residue, and dead skin are removed from your scalp at the same time.

We love this for: Being gentle and sulfate-free but still able to achieve a rich lather that makes hair feel like it's getting clean without leaving it feeling dry after shampoo is rinsed out.

Mizani True Textures Cream Cleansing Conditioner

Mizani True Textures Cream Cleansing Conditioner [20] ($26) conditions and lightly cleanses wavy to coily hair while essential fatty acids and antioxidants inside repair damage and leave styles protected and shiny.

We love this for: The way it can be used on its own as a "low-poo" shampoo substitute, or in between wash (with actual shampoo) days.

Mizani True Textures Moroccan Clay Steam Hair Mask

If your curls or coils tend to get a bit unruly, this Mizani True Textures Moroccan Clay Steam Hair Mask [21] ($30) features Moroccan lava clay to improve manageability and frizz control, while also deeply moisturizing hair while you wait.

We love this for: A rich coconut aroma that makes you feel like you're actually on an island somewhere, and the way hair will be incredibly soft (and still slightly sweet smelling) after it's rinsed off, too.

Mizani True Textures Curl Enhancing Lotion

The texture of this Mizani True Textures Curl Enhancing Lotion [22] ($17) is somewhere between a gel and a cream — and it's got nutrients inside to repair damage so styles stay defined, moisturized, and frizz-free.

We love this for: The way it gives hair a quick boost when it's already dry, as adding a touch and giving your curls or waves a squeeze quickly helps restore their shape.

Mizani True Textures Curl Define Pudding

As its name hints, the Mizani True Textures Curl Define Pudding [23] ($20) is a rich, pudding-like cream that you can use to define curls, so they're more elongated and smooth.

We love this for: How shiny and smooth it leaves tightly coiled hair, either when finger-defining curls or wearing a twist-out style instead.

Mizani True Textures Perfect Coil Oil Gel

Mizani True Textures Perfect Coil Oil Gel [24] ($24) gives definition to your hair's natural curl pattern and helps wash-and-go styles stay defined all day long.

We love this for: The powerful hydration it brings while also being 93 percent biodegradable and free of parabens, petrolatum, and silicone, too.

Mizani True Textures Twist and Coil Jelly

Mizani True Textures Twist and Coil Jelly [25] ($20) is the product to grab when you need extra help, so curls, coils, and waves can maintain their springy, well-defined shape.

We love this for: The way its texture really brings life (and smoothness) back to hair that's gone frizzy over time . . . but without the crunchiness that other powerful gels leave behind.
