    12 Haircare Products That Are Perfect If You've Got Curly Hair

    Let's go curls.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    There are different types of curls, and 'curly' can cover everything from loose waves to natural hair. While most of these products work for all kinds of curls, we'll let you know if any of the products we recommend are specific to certain hair textures or curl types.

    1. This coconut cleansing conditioner clears your hair of dirt and buildup without the moisture-stripping sulfates and alcohols that come with regular shampoo.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This cleansing conditioner isn't protein-rich, which can be really useful if you're trying to balance out your routine! It's got moisturising and nourishing castor oil and coconut oil in its lightweight formula, and because it contains clarifying ingredients, you won't need to use a shampoo with this stuff.

    Price: £8.78.

    2. A silk pillowcase won't create friction when you sleep on it, so your curls won't get frizzy overnight!

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Other pillowcases can tug at your hair, causing it to pull at your scalp and create frizz and breakage. Available in four colours (including a pretty pink), you can match one of these pillowcases to your decor!

    Price: £6.99.

    3. If you're going to blow-dry your hair, you'll need a diffuser to keep your curls in shape.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Curls tend to be more porous than straight hair, making them more prone to breakage and drying out. You might find it helpful to limit the amount of heat you apply to your hair if you've got curls! If you do blow-dry your hair, though, a diffuser is a perfect way to do it. It won't blast hot air directly onto your hair, and the spread-out heat and upward motion will add volume and definition to your curls. This one fits onto most hair dryers!

    Price: £16.99.

    4. Styling gel is a great way to add definition and sleekness to your curls.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Smooth, define, and style your curls with some of this silicone-free shea butter gel! You can use this product to protect and define your hair after washing it or to touch up new growth between washes. Customers say its creamy formula smells amazing. Just an FYI, though – the looser your curls are, the less of this product you'll need to use, so if you're not sure about what hair type you have, try a little first and build it up if necessary.

    Price: £6.99.

    5. A castor oil deep conditioner will revitalise and hydrate your hair.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Not only is castor oil incredibly nourishing to your hair, it helps to promote growth as well! It contains strengthening keratin and clarifying apple cider vinegar, and the hydrating shea butter in the formula is organic and fair trade.

    Price: £10.52.

    6. Detangle your hair with ease by using this wide-tooth comb.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    You don't want to brush your hair too often if you've got curly hair, because it can ruin your curl pattern and increase frizz. If you want to untangle your hair, though, one of these broad-tooth combs could help! They're perfect for hair with tighter coils and/or very thick hair, and the wide gaps in between the teeth of this comb should make detangling much more comfortable.

    Price: £5.99.

    7. Protect your hair from heat styling with this argan oil.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Curly hair is more likely to become heat-damaged than straight hair, so you'll need a good protectant if you want to use anything with a high temp on your hair. This argan oil is hydrating and protective (it'll even shield your hair from UV rays!)

    Price: £5.49.

    8. Invisibobbles are great for curly hair because they don't put strain on your scalp, so they'll make breakage less likely.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Unlike ordinary hair ties, these Invisibobbles are coiled, meaning they apply pressure really evenly throughout your hair. You won't get those uneven lumps of hair beneath your updo either!

    Price: £4.99 for three.

    9. I absolutely swear by this castor oil shampoo!

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This shampoo contains no silicones, sulfates, or parabens, so it's curly hair-safe. It smells absolutely incredible as well! It clears your hair of product buildup while it moisturises (name a more iconic duo), and it's colour-safe too, meaning it won't strip your hair of dyes.

    Price: £10.88.

    10. This defining curl custard is an easy way to achieve stunning curls.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Tame your curls and keep them frizz-free with some of this curl custard! It'll give your hair bounce and definition, and you can apply it to wet or dry hair.

    Price: £6.17.

    11. Dry your hair naturally without getting your shoulders wet with this microfibre drying turban!

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Materials like terry cloth can cause your curls to get frizzy, but microfibre won't hurt your hair. It's really absorbent too! Just plop your hair into this turban, twist it, and secure with the elastic loop and button.

    Price: £6.99.

    12. This hair refresher will perk your curls up between washes!

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    You don't want to over-wash your hair if it's curly, but that does sometimes mean your curls can end up looking a bit sad between washes. Perk them up with this spray, which will re-introduce bounce, shine, and volume to your hair!

    Price: £19.99.
