By Alice Doleman, 13 June 2022
When it comes to styling curls, coils or waves, it's mega important to use the right products. A bit obvious? Maybe, but plenty of ppl are using the wrong hair care bits – and that can lead to breakages, damage and a final style that isn’t, well, it 😞 But what ARE the best products to make your hair type pop🍾 and keep it where it’s supposed to be (like, all day)? Dw, we’re sharing all the tips below, incl. our top picks from Aveda and Bumble and bumble.
FOR CURLY HAIR
Whether you’ve got curls, coils, kinks or twists – it can be tricky to keep 'em where you want, right? Well, get ready to wave the struggle goodbye with two of our faves from Aveda 😍 First up, the Be Curly Curl Enhancer – it’s packed with proteins that expand with your hair when it’s wet, and contracts as it dries, locking your curls right into shape (ft. plenty of shiiiiiiiiine). Obvs, your diffuser comes in handy here, too. Another ICON in the styling game is the Confixor Gel – it gives you strong curls that stick without feeling sticky, you know?! Just run the magic gel thru your (slightly damp) hair and watch the perf curls form… No flyaways in sight, just plenty of body-ody-ody 🏆
Oh, and before applying either, we'd recommend prepping your hair with the Be Curly Style Prep for even more staying power ✨ And don't forget to check out the rest of Aveda's curl-friendly products, like the Nutriplenish Curl Gelee and Nutriplenish Leave In Conditioner.
FOR WAVY HAIR
While beachy waves give off a carefree surfer-chick vibe, there's actually some serious maintenance involved. Thankfully, Bumble and bumble are here to make our lives that lit bit easier. Enter: Surf Foam Shampoo and Surf Creme Rinse Conditioner – this dream duo boosts your hair with volume and texture right from the washing stage. They're also v lightweight, meaning the post-wash styling sesh will go super smoothly. Once washed, grab the Surf Styling Leave In Cream – it detangles, conditions, reduces frizz AND creates waves. We loooove a multi-tasker 💕
Want a shortcut to vacay energy? 🌊 You can get perf beach waves with Bumble and bumble's Salt Spray, our fave replacement for salty, sea air. Plus, it's conveniently compact, too! A couple of sprays will have your hair looking wavy (for real), allll day 🏄♀️
