Curly girls know the struggle: When our curls look their best, heads will turn, mouths will drool, confidence will be boosted. The problem is, curls, coils, and kinks can be so sensitive. Factors like humidity, the temperature of shower water, and even our sleeping positions can take a great curl day and leave us with deflated, flat, or frizzy texture. Natural hair by nature is very fragile, which is partly due to the fact that curls are easily dehydrated. Dry hair is easily damaged, which means more frizz, more breakage, and less bouncy hair. The great news is that there are more products on the market than ever that understand curls, and have products for type 3 and 4 curls that actually work. Curl creams are your hair's best friend, adding moisture, shape, and hold to the hair. While in the past, curl creams were guilty of making hair crunchy, wet-looking, or greasy, these formulations want you to have soft, touchable, and bouncy curls with none of the drawbacks. Below, find 15 amazing curl creams that revive dull texture and combat those common curl complaints.
