    Default Curly hair products

    Need some recommendations for good styling products for curls. I've got very wavy hair that has become more wavy since having kids and without any product it looks frizzy and the waves fall out. I tried mousse and it helps keep the curl but does give it that crunchy look.
    Any recommendations that help to reduce frizz, maintain curl but avoid crunchy or shiny gel look?

    My hair is super dooper frizzy and my go to product to maintain the frizz is Schwarzkopf Extra Care Leave-In treatment, 100ml cream. It also comes in a spray but I find the cream to work better and longer for me

    Moroccan oil curl stuff is also excellent (expensive, though. But you can get deals online). I use 1 pump of the intense curl cream on dripping wet hair, then 2 or 3 pumps of the mousse. Gives gorgeous defined, frizz free curls with no crunch.

    Also my hairdresser (I go to a curl specialist!) recommends the jessicurl range- it's an American company but there is an Australian distributor. you can order sample sachets online before committing to buying the full size products. There is a range of products depending on your curl type (honestly, there's so much 'science' behind a curl lol) so best to browse the jessicurl website and figure out what might suit.

    I have also used aveda curl range in the past and quite liked it. If you have a standalone aveda store near you it's worth going in for a chat

    So this comes in a pump? I also have the Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine but it comes with a dropper and I find I get oil everywhere and it's messy. Plus the smell is a bit yuk, that's why I prefer the cream.

    Yes the cream comes in a pump

    The mousse isn't a gas-filled canister type thing like most of them are, it's just a liquid. But gets surprsingly moussy and foamy. Great product but the packaging is terrible, it doesn't have a proper lid so leaks everywhere if you try and take it somewhere! Needs to be kept upright at all times. http://www.skincarestore.com.au/Moro...&category=-324

    There are other products in the range for frizzy and or curly hair but I haven't tried them so can't comment!
