As those who have it know, curly and highly textured hair requires a lot of water, moisture, and attention. But as the weather gets colder and calendars fill up with holiday festivities, not everyone has the time to pull out a diffuser, or wash-n-go and risk having frozen hair—or getting sick. Luckily, a set of new dry-styling products designed specifically for curly textures are here to help your curls look just as good as they did on day one.
When custom haircare brand Prose was developing their first-ever dry shampoo, they were conscious of curly-haired customers’ complaints. They noted that their curls would look flat, resulting in regular re-washing, or products would leave an excessive amount of residue and build-up. Keeping those issues in mind, Prose created a dry shampoo made of natural ingredients and super-fine particles to lift curls without leaving residue.
Natural ingredients are ruling everywhere: DevaCurl’s new DevaFresh spray is formulated with Kombucha and prickly pear; the ingredients combine to fight odors, refresh curls, and soothe the scalp.
Catering to similar concerns, Ouidad’s latest dry shampoo and conditioning hybrid, Clean Sweep Moisturizing Dry Shampoo, is packed with nourishing mongogo oil and carob tree protein complex so that it isn’t stripping the hair of its necessary and natural oils. And it sprays on clear to avoid any evidence of dry shampooing.
Whether you’re on the go and looking to soothe an itchy scalp, re-define second day spirals, or add a quick spritz of moisture without having to douse your head in the shower, here are five products to quell your curly-meets-cold-weather anxieties.
