If you have curly hair, I’m almost positive that you’ve had a love/ hate relationship with it. In my experience, there was a lot of hatred during my puberty years. Many straightening hair treatments came and went, but those damn curls still came back. Now that I’m in my twenties, I miss those bouncy and healthy curls more than anything.
I’ve been going through a bit of a detox for the past few years to really restore my curls, to get them back to their original state. And because of the damage already done to my hair, some products don’t always work for me. What I’m looking for right now, especially with this NY heat and humidity, is good curl definition and all the frizz taming.
I scoured Sephora for their top-rated products. So I did my research in the name of all that is curl definition, tested them out, this is what I found…
Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Anti-Frizz Nano Technology
The word gel tends to be a bit nightmare fueling, especially after many crazy hair moments during elementary school, when my hair used to be slathered with it. Also I’m not a fan of crunchy hair but with a name like this Ouidad Gel (and 997 reviews), I couldn’t resist. Sadly the results were a bit on the crunchy side. I prefer my curls a bit softer but this one kept her promise. Anti-frizz: check. Curl definition: check. If you don’t mind that little bit of crunch in your curl, Ouidad has your back. Find it here!
I’ve tried a lot of DevaCurl. Some minor hits, some misses. For a while I had pretty much given up with the brand but now, I found THE one. This creme formula with a 4.3 star Sephora rating is ideal to achieve exactly what I strive for: curls with definition but soft to the touch. Being that it’s a 3 in one product (leave in conditioner, daily moisturizer & style refresher), you can trust that your curls will be protected from all frizz. Find it here!
This product from Form was the one that I was super excited about. I used to use leave-in conditioner as curl creme when I was younger, so this all felt very nostalgic. It’s been loved more than 7K times on the Sephora website and the buzz behind their clean, but effective formula had me intrigued. I love that the formula comes out in the form of a very light mist. My hair has never felt softer which got me a little scared. Was it going to give me definition? Not exactly. It worked great at keeping the frizz at bay, but my curls were a little on the flat side.

As with all beauty products, I encourage you to give these products a try and let us know how they worked out for you. What are some of your favorite products to keep your curls bouncy and free of frizz?
