Beauty Quest: Gorgeous Curls

Take it from a couple of girls who know! The number one rule to getting beautiful frizz-free curls is to moisturize…religiously. And not to be overlooked, the second most important edict for curly hair is to be very, very selective with the products you use.
Here’s our works-every-time curl cocktail:

creme de la curl conditionerStart with a suds free shampoo and a moisture-rich conditioner. We love Miss Jessie’s Crème De La Curl cleansing crème, $20, and Crème De La Crème conditioner, $26. The products have a barely there deliciously sweet scent that manages to surround you yet doesn’t overpower. ( Remember it is best to not wash curly hair everyday as this can strip parched hair of natural oils.

Moisture LockAfter you clean your delicate tendrils add a leave-in to keep your locks hydrated. Long revered in the business as the Queen of Curl, Ouidad just launched a new product, two years in the making. The Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner, $22, infuses hair with conditioning proteins via naturally active ingredients like Green Tea and Pro-Vitamin B5. (

To keep curly hair from frizzing use a hydrating gel or cream that keeps ringlets tight, but not crunchy. Try Hair Rules Curly Whip, $18.50, a protein enriched formula that leaves strands shiny and protected from humidity. (

DevaCurl Heaven in HairOnce a week remember to give your locks a little extra loving with a deep conditioning treatment. We’re obsessed with Heaven in Hair Intense Moisture Treatment by DevaCurl, $37.50 (
