Best for: Surfer-inspired, loose, wavy/curly hair

Want natural-looking, textured curls? Using a sea salt spray is a great way of achieving relaxed beach waves – especially if you already have loose, wavy or curly hair. Our favourite product is the Toni&Guy Messy Salt Spray, which can help you achieve casual movement and matte-finish texture. Just spritz your hair with the spray and gently style your curls using your fingers. And the best part is that you can use the product on damp or dry hair.

2. VO5 Extreme Style Casual Control Fluff Tamer (£3.99*)

VO5 Extreme Style Casual Control Fluff Tamer.

Best for: Banishing frizz with a natural-looking finish

If you have unruly curls, you might want to consider using the VO5 Fluff Tamer. Why is it so great? Well, it provides natural control all-day long and because it’s not greasy, it’s much easier to wash out. Make sure you start with a small amount, though – it’s tempting to add more but if you’re heavy-handed, you’ll have to hit ‘restart’ by washing your hair again!

Editor’s tip: Apply the product to damp hair for a firmer hold and finish, or use it once your mane is dry if you prefer a natural look.

3. Dove Pure Care Oil Nourishing Treatment (£6.99*)

Best for: Moisturising dry, curly manes and black men’s hair

We know this product isn’t specifically for men, but hear us out: out of all the hair types, curly, coily and kinky locks tend to have to most difficulties distributing their natural oils down the hair shaft. This means that, without a little help, they can often appear dry, dull and brittle. This is why we think the Dove Oil Nourishing Treatment is perfect. The product is infused with nourishing ingredients like African macadamia oil, and the whole formula which will help make your hair healthier-looking.
