Summer Curls: Best Styling Products for Every Curl Type

A quick guide to help you get the best summer curls without the frizz.

As we all know, with summer comes humid weather conditions and lots of moisture in the air. There’s nothing worse than spending your precious time styling your curls at home, only to step out into the humid summer conditions and end up a victim of frizz!

We rounded up the products every curly girl needs for the summer season by curl type below. Whether you have loose curls, coily curls or a tighter curl texture, there are styling products that will help you get moisturized, defined and frizz-free summer curls.

Mousse for Loose Curls

Mousse products that are created specifically for curly hair textures are saviors when it comes to creating weightless and defined curly hairstyles. TRESemmé TRES Two Flawless Curls Extra Hold Mousse is ideal for looser curl patterns during the summer season. The formula gives extra hold and controls frizz without the heavy feeling. To use, simply rake it through damp hair and allow nature to take its course.

Shampoo and Conditioner Duo for Coily Hair Types

For the most part, year-round curly hair types suffer from dry hair. And although the summer’s hot temps can get pretty humid at times, the season can still suck the moisture from your hair due to the heat. That said, for coilier hair textures, we recommend using a shampoo and conditioner that help retain moisture, fight frizz and define curls at the same time, like TRESemmé Botanique Curl Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner, which hydrates, softens and gives your ringlets definition.

Firm-Hold Gel for Tighter Curls

Most curly girls with tighter coils need hair products that give their curls maximum definition with a stronger hold. This summer, try including TRESemmé TRES Two Flawless Curls Defining Gel into your current rotation. Why we love it? Tighter hair textures tend to be the driest of all curl types and gels that contain alcohol dry hair out even more. This alcohol-free formula hydrates and defines your curls. For best results and easy styling, be sure your hair is fully detangled before applying. Work the gel into your locks section by section, finger-combing as you go to encourage curl-clumping action. Use a diffuser to dry, or air-dry for a natural-looking finish to your summer curls.
