A quick glance at any fashion or beauty magazine will give you a peek into how the industry has been shifting. The focus is quickly changing from convincing us how to alter our appearances to giving us the tools to find a routine that allows us to embrace our natural beauty. We at All Things Hair couldn’t be more supportive of this change. We’ve found that life gets a lot easier when you stop trying to tone down your unique features, but rather, embrace and enhance what you’ve got! This certainly applies to curly hair on guys where the right tools and products, like men’s curly hair products, can help you to rock your own unique texture with ease.
One of the most common problems that men with curly hair have to deal with is learning how to properly shape, mold and configure their strands. You’ll want your curls to look uniform without looking too styled. Read on to check out some of our favorite men’s curly hair products!
Top Curly Hair Products for Men
1. Styling Oil
A styling oil might not be the first product that comes to mind when you think about styling your curly hair but this unexpected choice works to enhance your curls as it hydrates your strands. Try out Suave Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil, a super lightweight formula that works to condition your curly mane without weighing your hair down.
To style, run a dime-sized amount of the oil throughout your damp hair post-shower for super soft and shiny curls that you can still run your fingers through. Then, let your hair air-dry as it dries into its natural texture.
2. Hair Gel
If you’ve been fighting with frizzy hair that looks like you just walked out of a sauna, you’ll want to find a hair care product that helps define your ringlets while fighting against humidity. Bed Head for Men by TIGI Power Play Gel is an instant hair makeover in a bottle.
The gel will shape your curls, so they’re defined and bouncy ringlets without making them super stiff. Major score!
If you thought Dove was only good for a go-to hydrating bar of soap then you’re in for an exciting surprise. Head to the haircare aisle in your drugstore and grab a bottle of Dove Style+Care Defining Mousse for what we like to think of as a suit of armor for curly hair.
This mousse nourishes and protects your curls from root to tip and brings out their natural texture. Like the other products we mentioned above, this mousse won’t weigh your hair down or make it feel crunchy so you can rest easy.
4. Shampoo and Conditioner
Get yourself a wash and care system that can do both, cause, we get just how busy you are. Suave Men Thick+Full 2-in-1 Shampoo+Conditioner will do the trick to enhance your curls and natural thickness. Bonus: It smells pretty awesome.
5. Pomade or Wax
This sticky stuff is one powerful product for men’s curly hair. And you don’t need much, which is pretty awesome! Try out Dove Men+Care Defining Pomade, a fantastic product for those that want to define and sculpt their waves/curls.
A little goes a long way, so start small by applying only a dime-sized amount to your mane. Oh, and we are sure that you’ll dig that it’ll work to make your hair shiny without looking greasy!
6. Hair Spray
Yep, hair spray is another favorite for your curly hair that’s not just for the ladies. This product works to ensure that your curls stay the way you shaped them all day long. Spray over your hair, scrunch and you’ll be good to go.
