The 5 Best Conditioners For Curly Hair


Looking for a conditioner to add some hydration to your curls? Curly hair is prone to frizziness because when hair lacks moisture, it absorbs it from humidity in the air. Preserving your curls is a top priority for those who embrace their natural hair and finding the right combination of products – including conditioner – can be tricky. Doing your research, however, and learning what products work best with your hair type can do wonders for transforming the look and feel of your curly locks.

Aveda Be Curly Conditioner

This conditioner is part of Aveda’s curl-focused line of products that are beloved by those with waves, curls, and coils alike! Key ingredients include wheat protein and an organic aloe blend that expands when hair is wet and retracts when dry to create definition and tame frizz. Plus, certified organic lemon, bergamot, and orange leave a refreshing, natural scent after conditioning.

Briogeo Curl Charisma Curl Defining Conditioner

This personal favorite hydrates curly hair, tames frizz and helps define individual waves or curls. Tomato fruit ferment and Mollis leaf extract seal the cuticle for uniform curl formation while sweet almond oils and shea butter enhance hair’s softness and body without adding weight, which leaves curls bouncy and full.

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Conditioner

Ouidad’s conditioner nourishes curls, locks in the moisture, and encourages curl formation using anti-frizz nano-technology and protein derived from silk seals. Emollients, including shea butter and murumuru butter, help repair the cuticle and smooth hair to fight against frizz. You’ll notice a significant difference after using this conditioner, especially if you use the full Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing system!

This deeply hydrating conditioner helps smooth, define and moisturize curly locks. Sunflower seed extract, shea butter, and coconut oil all work together to add UV protection, shine, hydration, and protection. Plus, the lightweight lotion is free of sulfates, parabens, formaldehyde, and mineral oil, as well as being vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.

Bumble & Bumble Curl Custom Conditioner

This hydrating conditioner can be used three different ways: as a rinse-out, leave-in, or co-wash, making it a versatile product for every wavy or curly-haired girl! Bumble and Bumble’s patented HydraSculpt blend is a polymer that has both styling and moisturizing benefits so that each curl is controlled and hydrated. It also helps to add bounce, shine and fight frizz! The brand is completely cruelty-free, meaning they don’t test on animals, which is something we can 100% get behind.
