Summer Hair Care Favorites for Curly Hair


“Curly Hair, Don’t Care”

Natural Curls
My daughter’s curly bun

Summer is one of my favorite seasons next to Fall. However, thanks to my thick middle-eastern hair, humidity is not my friend. Marci, my oldest daughter has hair just like her Mama. Although, her curls are more like Shirley Temples. She has such beautiful hair which makes it so frustrating to maintain since she does NOT like having her hair touched. If you can relate, check out some of my favorite hair care products!

“Brush it, Brush it real good”

Moving on from my corny Vanilla Ice reference. I have gone through a variety of brushes and combs to find the right ones. Especially, when it comes to my daughter’s hair. You would think she was in a horror movie the way she screams. I’m sure many of you can relate. The hair struggle is real.

Detangle Brushes are my Best Friends

The “Wide Tooth Comb Shower Comb With Hook, Good for Curly Hair Wet Dry, Premium Tangle Free Combs Black” is great, especially in the shower. I comb out all the knots while conditioning the hair. It is so much easier than trying to hold her down and comb her hair after the shower.

The Wet Detangle Brush is by far my favorite. It is super soft and doesn’t hurt while untangling knots.

Curly Care Product Favorites

I remember as a teenager I would put massive amounts of gel and mousse in my hair to get those kinky, crunchy curls. Oh, and the best part, top it all off with super hold hairspray. I quickly learned all I was doing was drying out my hair. Now, I stick to curling creams and “softer” hair products.

Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Moisturizing Curl Activator Cream is the best for getting those soft curls. This is definitely stocked in my house. I actually love a lot of products made by Cantu.

The curling cream for kids is perfect for my three-year-old’s hair. It keeps her curls from getting frizzy and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling. The last thing I need is to wash her hair every night!

Anti-Frizz Action

As I mentioned before, humidity is not my friend. Those hot summer days have me looking like I was electrocuted. If I know I am going to be outside I always be sure to use an anti-frizz spray to keep from looking crazy. OGX Strength & Length + Golden Turmeric Anti-Frizz Air Dry Hair Cream with Coconut Milk does the job well and it smells so good!

OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Curling Perfection Curl-Defining Cream, Hair-Smoothing Anti-Frizz Cream is another all-time favorite. I used to use anti-frizz serums but I found it to make my hair more oily than I wanted.

“All for one, and one for all”

Wet Brush Time Release Detangler is great for so many things. Not only does it keep your hair conditioned for a couple of days. It can be used as a heat protector as well.

No dead ends here

When I compare the products I use now to the crappy stuff I used in the past, I can definitely say less is more. You just have to use the right products. If you have curly hair like me you may find these products helpful. Comment below what your favorite hair care products are.
