5 must-have curly-centric products for naturalistas

Natural curly hair girls have two things in common: curly hair, and lots of products for curly hair. Every curl has its own unique ability to be just that, different. With no curl being the same, and so many curl patterns and textures, there’s a plethora of products from which to choose, but not every product is suited for your curls. Even if the package is designed with words like “For Curly Hair,” proceed with caution. Be sure to stay away from shampoos and conditioners with silicone and sulfate lathering detergents — even if it is on sale. Silicone causes build up which can only be removed with sulfate and sulfate will dry out your hair. Got it?
