You probably think, why did no one properly take care of my hair?

Even as adults, we sought out the best flat iron or curling iron to manage and tame our locks because we didn't know how to properly style our curly hair.

Since quarantine, I've been doing my research on how to take care of my 2c/3a wavy, curly hair. I went to trusty YouTube, to check out the best products for my hair type and found a whole new world of brands that cater to kinky and coily hair.

I must have binge-watched for a week straight to absorb everything I could to better understand textured hair. I mainly became curious because my hair had been unflatteringly frizzy for the last few months, and I was looking for products that would tame the frizz when I stumbled upon the plethora of products for curly-haired girls.

Here are a few brands that will help curly-haired girls manage and tame frizz.

A heat protectant and frizz-fighter all in one, this restorative styling oil is highly concentrated and packs all the hair-loving ingredients you want to keep your hair vibrant, soft, and shiny. Olaplex claims that their patented formula is the only one that will visibly repair extremely damaged hair. Considering all the rave reviews they have, and the noticeable difference in my hair, I'd have to agree. Of all the products I've tried, this is the one that has made the most significant difference.

Fighting frizz is a battle that a lot of us try to win. The only way to truly keep frizz under control is to use products that will complement the season and consider your hair's porosity, how often you heat, style it, color it, and keep it balanced with the needed moisture and protein your hair type needs.
