From S-shaped waves to spiralled coils, there is a broad spectrum of shapes, textures and styles to consider when it comes to curly hair, and no matter where you fall on the hair type chart, your natural pattern deserves to be celebrated.

'Some of the biggest misconceptions that I hear about curly, coily, and kinky hair relate to how it performs versus straight or wavy hair', says celebrity Hairstylist and curls expert Vernon François. 'Myths like, the more intense your curls are, the harder they are to manage, that kinks and curls are harder to style, that at-home upkeep is more intensive and that the range of hairstyles on offer is limited. But in fact, the the reverse is true.'

The Best Conditioners For Curly Hair

Curly hair can easily lose shape and definition without a good conditioner, and the key to bouncy, defined curls with minimal static is detangling gently. Hydrate hair by following up your wash with a hardworking conditioner, and while the hair is still damp, comb through with a wide toothed comb to tease out knots, and gently scrunch back to encourage shape. Particularly dry or type 4 afro hair can also benefit from a leave in conditioner, massaged in and left and to naturally dry.
