When shopping for hair care products, look for the products specifically designed for curly hair. These products, which are usually the same price as products for straight hair, will help to moisturize and reduce frizz. Sulfate-free shampoo can be especially good for curly hair, and lightweight mousse, gel or other styling products designed for curly hair can help to add body and shape to a head full of curls. When applying these products to your hair, gently work a small amount of product through a small section of hair so as not to break up curls. A friend of mine with gorgeous curly hair recommends the Be Curly line by Aveda. One of the products in this line is a hair lotion, which might sound scary, but actually does wonders to control frizz and smells great!
