    1. Aunt Jackie's Don't Shrink Elongating Curling Gel lengthens and defines curls without leaving residue.

    Promising review: "My shrinkage is gone! I love being natural but it is a challenge finding the perfect product. I think I have found it! It isn't too greasy, it smells delicious, and you will not have to use the jar to do your hair! I hate when I have to use all the product to get a great look. It's great for flat twists and for just a quick wash and go. I have bought jar after jar and I will keep some on the back shelf just in case I think I have run out! Use this; your curls will be perfect! —Shahntay Simpson

    2. As I Am DoubleButter Cream Moisturizer is formulated with pro-vitamin B5 and can be used daily to quench all natural hair types.,

    Promising review: "This works wonders for me. I have been natural for about three years now and put my hair in Bantu knots a lot. This is perfect for moisturizing overnight and holding styles. It never gets flaky and is a miracle for someone like me with really dry, hard-to-keep-moisturized hair. It is pricey however and it does build up in your hair after about three days but compared to almost every other product I have used. This one is the go-to for me now. The only product that has worked for me." —Sarah H

More definition and soft curls. Curly girls, get this product. It’s so much more expensive in salons, so just try it! At this price, it’s too cheap to have anything to lose." —Dana Jean

A dime-sized amount of this product brings the curls back to life, softens the hair, and doesn’t weigh it down. I usually try to go two days between washing it to keep it from drying out but I wasn’t sure if it would seem greasy if I used this product. So far, so good. I concentrate on the ends and try to keep it off the roots. Overall, I’m so glad I decided to try it!" —Laurett E. Gannon

    Promising review: "I purchased the Maui Moisture Quench + Coconut Oil and my 4c hair loves it. For a twist out style, this is the key for my hair. I spritz with water, next apply the Maui Moisture Quench + Coconut Oil, make sure my ends are curled. You can use a few comfy hair rollers and cover your hair at night. In the morning, the waves are very defined and beautiful. I've used one container so far and what I noticed is that when I would wash my hair... the texture was so curly and my hair was much fuller. I highly recommend." —NEECEE

    Price: $6.49 (the formula is also available in a shampoo, conditioner, and curl milk)

    Promising review: "I was tired of purchasing cheap satin bonnets from the beauty supply store that are not actually made out of satin and dry out my curly hair. I did some researching online and came across this bonnet. For once I finally own a bonnet that is ACTUALLY made of satin! I'm so happy with this purchase — the material is a nice color, the bonnet is soft and keeps my curls moisturized while I sleep, and it fits all of my hair (I have a lot of hair and nothing ever fits it all)! This also works better than an over-priced satin beanie I purchased last year from another online company. This bonnet is great; I plan to pick-up another just for travel." —LaideeJ

This stuff is great. It isn't heavy or greasy (just don't use too much of it), it separates the curls nicely, leaves a shine, and stops the frizz. Again you really don't need a lot — just rub some on your hands and coat it over wet hair and you're good to go." —ari_nyc

    Price: $5.06

    23. Cantu Coconut Curling Cream eliminates frizz and helps strengthen and define curls without weighing them down — all thanks to pure Shea Butter.,

    Promising review: "My daughter is bi-racial (well, tri-racial since I'm Hispanic and Asian and her father is black) and while her hair is very soft, it is quite curly. Her curls can get frizzy so my friend suggested I try this. It's amazing. I spray her hair with a little bit of water and then run a little bit of this through her hair and it takes away any frizz and really helps define the curls. And it smells glorious. And the best part is the price! So many hair products are outrageously priced, but this one is very inexpensive and works wonders." —DeeL42

    Price: $5.83+ (available in two sizes)

    Promising review: "I love Shea Moisture products and use them regularly. This shampoo and conditioner set is by far my favorite. I have coarse and dry, wavy hair and I made the mistake of dying my hair after already bleaching it. My hair was so damaged it felt like straw when I ran my fingers through it and it became easily tangled. After the first use of this product, my hair feels soft and looks shiny and healthy. It’s amazing!" —Nicolle

    Price: $19.99
