Enhance your curly hair with these hair care essentials.

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. This goes for men and women and everything from hair to makeup to overall body positivity. 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 know, somewhere between mad scientist and having overly greasy 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 that will surely help you to create the perfect look for you!

These curly hair products for men will help you have confidence in your natural texture.

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 the Suave Moroccan Infusion Styling Oila 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. The TRESemmé Flawless Curls Defining 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!

3. Mousse

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 the 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. The Dove Men+Care Thick & Strong Fortifying 2-in-1 Shampoo+Conditioner will do the trick to enhance your curls and natural thickness. Bonus: it smells pretty awesome.

This sticky stuff is one powerful product for men’s curly hair. And you don’t need much, which is pretty awesome! Try out the Dove Men+Care Defining Pomade, a fantastic product for those that want to define and sculpt their waves/curls. A word to the wise: a little goes a really long way, so start small by applying a dime-sized amount to your mane, then taking it from their should you need some more. Oh, and we are sure that you’ll dig that it’ll work to make your hair shiny without looking greasy!
