I have a few favorites in this category that I switch off using. I think it’s best to have several shampoos and conditioners, especially for curly hair, that you alternate to keep your hair fresh and bouncy. Here are my picks for the best shampoos and conditioners for curly hair:
Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner
Pureology Hydrate is an incredible daily moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. This is a great shampoo and conditioner for dry, curly hair like mine. The best part about Pureology are their natural ingredients, zero animal testing and all of their products are created for color treated hair- in fact, Pureology products enhance and help maintain the color in your hair! If you have dry, color treated hair, and especially for curly hair, check out Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner.
Redken All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner
Redken All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner contains avocado oil to make your hair not only silky but smooth as well. This shampoo and conditioner works really well for dry, chemically treated hair and is not too heavy for curly hair, but it is not specially formulated for color treated hair. Redken All Soft is a great shampoo and especially conditioner for damaged, curly hair that needs restoring. For an intensive treatment, check out Redken All Soft Heavy Cream. If you have really dry hair you can use this daily, otherwise the Heavy Cream is a great once a week treatment for dry, damaged hair.
Pureology NanoWorks Condition
The Pureology NanoWorks line is the most comprehensive product line for damaged hair. I use the Pureology NanoWorks Conditioner as a once a week treatment for my dry, curly hair. The Pureology NanoWorks conditioner is very moisturizing and luxurious and contains the added benefits of being safe for color treated hair. The Pureology NanoWorks conditioner is so intense that if I use this any more than once a week my curls are limp and my hair is weighed down because it’s so moisturizing. Pureology also makes a NanoWorks Restorative Hair Treatment for those with extremely damaged hair, but I find that the NanoWorks conditioner is more than enough as a weekly conditioning treatment for my hair. Pureology NanoWorks is a lot more expensive than their other lines of hair products, but Pureology Nano Technology is one of a kind and truly heals hair that is dry, damaged and brittle- you will see the difference after one use! Keep those ringlets nice and hydrated and you will have perfect curls!
