Our curly hair is fragile, and many of the styling choices our straighter sisters often take for granted must be used sparingly or not at all for us. It’s ok…it just means we’re special, but it also means we have to work a tad harder at keeping our tresses damage-free.
Damage can occur from over-styling, neglect, chemicals, hormones, illness; the list goes on. Although we try to prevent damage, sometimes it's too late, which is when we typically turn to products for help in repairing our stressed tresses. Since there are so many products telling you what they can do without really explaining how they do it, we decided to give a breakdown of eight products and what their ingredients can do to prevent and temporarily remedy currently damaged curls.
