Curly hair forms a definite 360-degree curve in a combination of s-shaped patterns like ringlets, spirals, and corkscrews, from roots to ends. In its most healthy state, curly hair has sheen and benefits from moisture enriched ingredients and products. Since the natural oils produced at the scalp get trapped and aren’t easily dispersed beyond the mid-shaft, curly hair is susceptible to becoming dry. It is prone to frizz, and tangles easily, especially when lacking moisture. Best products are creams, butters, and nourishing gels that define and promote moisture retention.
