Kinks to Curls: Top Products for Natural Hair

By  May 01, 2012

Coarse. Textured. Frizzy. Untamed. Those are just a few of the words used to describe glam gals with hair that hasn’t succumbed to chemical straighteners. Sure, a good ol’ relaxer may make your BFF’s coif look nice, and that Brazilian keratin treatment may have offered your co-worker an option for sleek tresses, but chemical straighteners permanently alter the chemistry of your hair and can be damaging.

Not to worry — there are plenty of options to tame those tresses. Create crisp curls or achieve the perfect blowout for times when you want to switch up your signature curly-kinky coif. Best of all, most are infused with natural ingredients that keep your hair healthy, no matter what style you rock. As a bonus, make sure you always couple these great products with a wide-toothed comb. After all, who said coarse, textured, frizzy, or untamed had to be bad things? It just means your hair has a lot more character than the average Jane.
