Our Ingredients Philosophy for Curly Hair Products

Our Ingredient philosophy is: use what works best for you! Every curl and every person is an individual, and different curly hair products and ingredients will work for different people/curls.

Every time we look into this topic it seems like a website or blogger has decided a particular ingredient shouldn’t be used on curls. A lot of the times the decision is based on their particular experience, individual curl pattern, and excessive use of a particular ingredient. We don’t totally agree with saying a flat out NO to any particular ingredient as long as it isn’t a harmful one.

As a trusted curly hair hair salon, integrity is always at the top of our list. Many times after talking with a curly girl about her style, our recommendation for a curly hair styling product is something she never considered to achieve her desired look. It is all about moderation and, of course, ingredient quality is also very important.

  • Silicone: Yes a silicone will be greasy and flatten curls if you use it too much, but water soluble silicones can be a game changer for some who need expansion control.
  • Hair Spray: Some curly girls do need hairspray to hold their hair. With the right hairspray product, the alcohol is actually not damaging to their hair – instead, it creates control and helps them achieve their desired look.
  • Oil: Don’t say no to an oil – they can be excellent cast breakers that adds shine and softens coarse expansive curls.
