The Perfect Routine for Thick and Curly Hair

Throughout my entire life I have been on a journey — a hair journey that is. I have had thick and curly hair for as long as I can remember, and finding the perfect products to tame those curls has been a struggle. It took about 19 years, but I have finally established a hair care routine that I follow every time I wash my hair. Here are the 6 products that I use to tame frizz and enhance my curls.

  1. 1. OGX Extra Strength Damage Remedy + Coconut Miracle Oil Shampoo

    Those years of applying heat to my hair with flat irons (which I seriously regret now) left the ends of my hair feeling dry and damaged. This shampoo contains coconut oil which makes my hair feel more moisturized and lively.

  2. 2. OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Conditioner

    This conditioner SAVED me. When curly hair gets tangled, it can be extremely difficult and time consuming to detangle. This conditioner has made the detangling process so much faster and easier, while at the same refining my hair strands and making them feel silky.

  3. 3. Extra Strength Damage Remedy + Coconut Miracle Oil Penetrating Oil

    After I get out of the shower, I gently dry my hair with a towel and then apply this oil to the lower half of my hair (especially those damaged ends!) to maintain the shine and moisture.

  4. 4. Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream

    This cream is a must-have to tame frizz and simultaneously enhance curls. Thoroughly apply some to all of your hair and then scrunch the curls upward to maintain their shape.

  5. 5. Leven Rose Organic Jojoba Oil

    For the final touch of shine, I apply some drops of this jojoba oil to the ends of my hair, which usually tend to get dry. This oil helps to retain moisture for a longer lasting shine effect.

  6. 6. Let's Jam Shining And Conditioning Gel Extra Hold

    The final step is to just add a little bit of gel to the ends of my hair and scrunching it up. I do this to make sure that my curls will retain their shape for as long as possible without frizzing up.

By using a variety of different oils and creams, I am able to tame the frizz that comes with curly hair, while at the same time detangling, enhancing, and adding shine and volume to my once dry and damaged curls. Shine on, curly girlies!
