Apply a few drops to your hair when re-styling to nourish your strands, or add it to your finished style for added shine.

5. Hair Spray

Hair spray may not be a product that many women with curly hair would have on their list. However, this is a product that you may want to include in your styling routine. If you’re aiming to have a style with long lasting curls without the use of a gel, a hair spray can be an alternative. After styling your hair, finish it off with a firm hold hairspray, like TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend Hold Level 4.
