he last couple of years, I have been flaunting my naturally curly hair. Wearing my cool curls defined my modelling career. Having curly hair can be a bit of a pain spending time & money for curly hair products. Some of them are quite expensive and sell you a dream. I have tried seven products that are catered to naturally curly hair. These seven products are not only effective but also affordable. I have tried from shampoo’s, conditioners, oils, styling creams and etc. Here at SC, we got you, babe.

1. Only Curls All Curl Cleanser & Conditioner £32.00

Only Curls is one of the gentle shampoo & conditioners I’ve ever used. It is sustainable (recycled bottles) and vegan. It is free of sulfate, parabens, silicone, animal testing and etc. Definitely one of the best cleansers I’ve used. Not only does it cleanse my curls but it also leaves them soft and tangle-free. When I dry my curls with a diffuser it is more defined, moisturized most importantly it stays frizz-free.

2. Activilong Sapote Black Castor Oil Puff Cream & Leave-In Conditioner £7.99

Do you have bleached hair or dry brittle hair? I can imagine the frustration. I have bleached hair if I don’t use leave-in conditioner my hair definitely becomes dry. Using Activilong puff cream has fixed the dry and brittle bits and leaving my hair moisturized and soft. It is also non-greasy. This leave-in conditioner is filled with plant proteins, black castor oil, and sapote oil. Kinky hair goddess cream.

3. Aunt Jackies Girls Knot Havin’ It! Leave-in Ultimate Detangling Moisturiser £4.99

Believe me when I say this is a MUST BUY! I remember when I was a kid having these kinky tight curls; my mum used to have to cut on the knots on the back of my neck. When a girlfriend told her about this Aunt Jackies. I’ve been using Aunt JackieKnot Havin’ It for years. It is a detangling moisturiser for kinky curly hair. A little goes a long way, easy to comb through without breaking the hair and smells incredible.

4. Activilong ActivCurl Hydra Curl Activator Gel £6.29

It is one of my favourites for defining a wet curl look. It is rich with aloe vera, castor oil and rosemary leaf oil. Vegan-friendly!

5. Moroccan Oil £32.85

One of the most versatile oils ever. Moroccan hair oil absorbs rather quickly, leaving your hair silky and shiny without leaving your hair greasy. It is a great leave-in treatment; it helps to restore the hair from over-processing hair damage and chemical procedures. I could even use this little miracle oil for heat protection. A little goes a long way with this miracle oil. I do love to use Moroccan oil when I straighten my hair, it leaves my hair smooth.
