Aside from a hydrating shampoo and conditioning system, you’ll want to make sure to follow up with curly hair products that soothe and define your curls, no matter the texture. Keep reading to find our favorite products that will hydrate curly hair.

This hair spray for curls is a great option for a quick refresh of your hair without committing to your entire styling routine. It hydrates to re-define your coils without creating build-up, so you can use it during the day whenever you feel like your mane needs reshaping.
If you’re looking for long-lasting nourishment and definition for your curls, this leave-in cream will do the trick. Use this product to lock in moisture, smooth frizz, and add shine to your curls.
Apply the leave-in to wet hair from roots to ends, distributing it evenly. Add more near your roots for added volume, and then scrunch your hair gently to style. Follow up by drying your hair — it’s up to you whether you wait for your hair to air dry or break out your blow-dryer, just be sure to spray with heat protectant for the latter.
Whether you’re giving your curls a break from the heat tools or you live a heat-free hair life, make this mousse your go-to. The less heat you use on your hair, the less damage you’ll have to repair later. This lightweight mousse injects hair with volume to give your curls a bouncy boost for any hairstyle.
This mask helps restore and strengthen the last five inches of your strands with restoring fiber concentrate and collagen peptides. The fiber technology works when you take a generous amount of the mask into your palms, then slowly clap your hands together to reveal the mask’s fibrous texture. Apply on the lengths of your hair, avoiding your roots, and massage into your hair for two to three minutes.
This product should be the secret weapon in everyone’s hair care arsenal — curly hair or not. Formulated to help your mane retain length, it works to instantly detangle and smooth your strands. After washing your hair, apply the Wonder Water to your lengths, avoiding the scalp. Massage the product into the hair for eight seconds before rinsing it out and following up with conditioner.
If you have curls, you might know a thing or two about frizz. This hair serum helps soften, tame, and define curls for shiny, polished frizz-free spirals. Apply the serum generously from your roots to your ends, distributing the product evenly. Let your curls air dry or blow-dry them with a diffuser to even out your curl pattern for a bouncier finish.
