Drybar has long been synonymous with gorgeous blowouts and now its offerings have been extended to include those with natural waves, curls and ringlets. The Gin Twist collection features a shampoo, a conditioner, an edge control gelee and a curl conditioning styler. Used together, the lineup can strengthen hair, reduce breakage, boost moisture and nix frizz while increasing shine.
Miss Jessie's is your go-to for budget-friendly curly hair products. The brand was founded back in 2004 by sisters Miko and Titi Branch, who ran their own salon that catered to curly-haired clientele. After realizing there was a gap in the market, they set out to create their own line of products. The brand is known for its playful packaging and ability to flawlessly style curly, kinky and wavy hair textures.
