5 Essential Hair Products For Every Type Of Curl

We have some seriously positive feelings about curly hair and how gorg it is. That being said, we also know firsthand that babes blessed with curly locks don't (usually) just wake up with perfectly defined, bouncy ringlets.
So, we polled the curly girls in our office for their secrets — because by the looks of their rad 'dos, they know what they're talking about. Then, we put on our beauty-editor caps and identified the best products for curly hair. From wavy to kinky and everything in between, here are the hair saviors we swear by. These picks will make sure that the grass really is greener on the curly side of the fence — not that it wasn't already.
