Best Organic Hair Products for Curly Hair

Whether your hair is wavy or curly ~ this article is for you.  Both wavy AND curly hair tend to be drier & more prone to frizz issues than straight hair, & when I’m traveling frequently between different climates, this becomes especially noticeable!  And if you want to use more natural, chemical-free products for your curly hair, than fixing the frizz can be even trickier.  But don’t worry!  That’s what this article is all about, as we discuss the “Best Organic Hair Products for Curly Hair!”

Keeping products as natural as possible is important to me ~ but so is having healthy-looking, beach waves while I’m traveling! Below we’ll discuss the “Best Organic Hair Products for Curly Hair!” (Author pictured in very humid Costa Rica : )

Best Organic Hair Products for Curly Hair

For natural hair care meant specifically for curly hair, I’ve only got two words for you: Shea Moisture.  Their products smell good, feel good, & manage to keep my beach-blonde hair healthy ~ minus chemicals.  Organic Shea Butter is the base for most of their products (hence the name), & though not all their ingredients are certified organic ~ it’s about as close as you can get to truly all-natural in terms of hair products.

For instance, the following ingredients are NEVER in Shea Moisture products:

  • NO Parabens
  • No Phthalates 
  • No Mineral Oil
  • No Petroleum
  • No Formaldehyde

Shea Moisture is as close to all-natural as you can find ~ & the majority of their products are meant for curly & wavy hair.

My favorite, all-around Shea Moisture line is their Coconut Curl & Shine series, & this is the ingredient list for it. So natural, it doesn’t even include alcohol ~ which can be very drying, & is in 90% of shampoo & conditioners on the market.

Which Product is Best for You?

How do you know which Shea Moisture product is right for your hair?  Take a look at the graph below, determine how “kinky” your curl is, then scroll down to see which products are best for your hair type.  The curlier the hair ~ the more moisture it needs.  And vice versa: the straighter the hair, the lighter you’ll want the product to be.

Figure out which type of curl you have (I’m a 3A-2C, depending on the climate), then scroll down to determine the best product for your hair type.

The only Shea Moisture product that isn’t on the chart above that I’m a HUGE fan of, is their “Frizz Defense” line ~ especially their Frizz Defense Hair Masque.  It has saved me from many horrendous hair situations, including when my hair went full-on swamp monster at the Blue Lagoon in Iceland!  The “Frizz Defense” line has NO protein in it, which was necessary to fix my “Blue Lagoon” hair, & I use this deep conditioner whenever my hair feels extremely damaged or dry.
