Creating the perfect rizos doesn't always come easy, but if you have the right tools and products, you can achieve your desired look in minutes. You'll want to begin with a lightweight leave-in conditioner that helps detangle and eliminate frizz, followed by a heat protector that helps to protect against heat damage while adding strength and shine. Once you've curled your hair, complete the look with a finishing spray that seals your style. Yes, it's that easy! Ahead, we've detailed how to get statement-making curls and what products to use.
The key to gorgeous hair, in general, is to keep it moisturized, which is why we suggest starting with a leave-in conditioner. Once you've towel-dried your hair, spritz some of the Redken Frizz Dismiss Smooth Force Leave-In Conditioner Spray ($27). This lightweight conditioner is formulated with babassu oil and a smoothing complex that provides humidity protection and helps to smooth frizz without weighing hair down.
Next, it's essential to protect your hair from the heat. The Sun Bum Heat Protector ($15) helps decrease blow-dry time and protects against thermal damage and breakage. It contains noni, a fruit rich in vitamin C, which helps eliminate damaging impurities from the scalp while hydrating and nourishing the hair. Another key ingredient is giant sea kelp extract, which strengthens and softens hair strands, boosting their moisture and leaving them shiny. Once hair is towel-dried, shake up the heat protector until the clear and turquoise parts blend, and apply from roots to ends.
There's a new Barbie in town, but she's not your average doll. We're talking about the CHI x Barbie Dreamhouse 1" Compact Spin and Curl ($110) styler. It has a chic, ergonomic design that allows it to get closer to the root, creating volume and body for the most perfect, bouncy rizos. It does all the work with only the push of a button, which informs the curler to draw hair into the curl chamber, where it's heated and timed to create effortless-looking curls and waves.
It's time to seal your rizos with the OGX Locking + Coconut Curls Decadent Creamy Mousse ($10), which gives the ultimate finishing touch to your megawatt curls. This part-cream, part-foam product is blended with coconut oil and shea butter for soft curls that hold — never dull, never frizzy.
