We have officially stepped away from the need to straighten every hair within an inch of its life, and an increasing number of people are letting their curly flag fly. The challenge is to keep the curls as just that, without them devolving into frizz. The coming Summer means high temperatures and humidity, but the latest crop of curl enhancers are more than up for the challenge.
Madame CJ Walker Coconut Oil is for the days when you just want your curls to do what they do, but stay hydrated and defined. This lightweight spray formula uses a universal age-old hair fix to keep frizz at bay without forcing curls to go crunchy and freeze into a specific style. One of the most attractive features is that it can be used on wet or dry hair, and works on a wide range of lengths and textures.
Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Oil turns to technology to create a formula that acts and behaves like oil without the side effects. The buildable formula forms a barrier between hair and humidity, effectively blocking frizz on even the most coarse hair types. It can also be used on wet or dry air. And although it’s mostly chemical, you can spot a few favorites like Moringa and Jojoba oils in the ingredient list.
Qhemet Biologics Amla & Olive Heavy Cream goes back to basics to tackle hair that laughs at all products and just does whatever it wants. Specially formulated for thick unruly hair, the formula blends old world ingredients like Brahmi and Amla Oils to nourish the scalp and condition hair. It also contains MSM Sulfur, which has been proven to encourage hair growth. This is a solid case of ‘less is more’: the combination is so potent that there’s no need to pile it on. A fully emulsified finger-full will easily distribute on the scalp and through hair and work to control frizz and define curls until you wash it out.
