No matter how much time you dedicate to caring for your curls, finding out the products that work best for coily textures can feel like the hardest part. From figuring out your hair’s porosity, type, and general behavior when it comes to styling, it can feel like a lot.
With slightly scary accuracy, my Instagram feed tends to suggest products that just make sense. So when influencer @afrozuri_ showed up on my timeline wearing the most gorgeous twist-out hairstyle I’ve ever seen, and attributed that style to the brand Curlsmith, I knew I had to take a deeper dive into the brand’s offerings.
Since Curlsmith’s inception in 2017, the company has made it a point to cater to every curl pattern on the spectrum, from subtle waves to hair types 3 and 4 and everything in between. Plus, the ingredients list across the range often read like a food recipe — you’ll find avocado oil, kale, rosemary, coconut oil, and loads of butters — and there are never any potentially drying actives (the first no-no for any curl product) like sulfates, alcohol, or artificial dyes.
Over the last few years, people started to take notice and products like its Curl Defining Styling Souffle ($27) have become cult favorites. Because I, for one, will always fall for a highly-curated, worryingly specific ad, I had to try the products for myself. Read ahead for the best Curlsmith products that deserve a spot in your curl-care routine.
