What You Need: Whether you have tight corkscrews prone to dryness or frizz-traumatized waves, two of the most important things to remember when choosing your products are to get a shampoo or conditioner made specifically for curly hair, and to pick styling products that are intense in moisture and devoid of alcohol. As a general rule, go with lightweight styling products and let your curl confidence soar!

What You Want to Try: Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Shampoo

This shampoo is made with a moisture complex of glycerin and water that moisturizes hair while providing a protective barrier for curls. It also has transglutaminase - don't worry, we don't know what it means either. All you really need to know is that it helps your curls form the moment you step out of the shower. $21

Fine, Thin Hair

While you want to hydrate your hair, those of you with fine hair know the last thing you want is to weigh your hair down. While fine-haired femmes may be frizz free, volume they have not.

What You Need: The key in shampoo and styling products is to coat the hair with hydration (not too much) and pump up the volume. Any product you buy should work to counteract limp-looking hair and prevent a peek-a-boo scalp. For styling, consider mousse. You need to look for products that will fortify the hair strands, such as wheat protein, which serves as a surefire way to plump up hair strand by strand.
