The Top 18 Curl Creams of 2018- Natural Hair Styling Essentials



There’s nothing like a great curl cream. Silky and moisturizing, these hair products are a staple in many curly girls’ hair routines. They take you from “Hey, cool hair!” to “OMG what do you use for your hair?”

There are a few different types of curl creams – styling creams, curl smoothies, souffles, and puddings all fit into this category. If the color is opaque and it’s thicker than a lotion, but thinner than a butter, it’s safe to say that you’re looking at a curl cream. Some of them are denser than others. They often contain rich butters and oils, like shea, coconut, or jojoba.

Practically all hair types should have a curl cream in their arsenal, but different types are useful for different things. Lightweight creams and curl smoothies are lovely for finishing off your wash-and-gos – the LOC method has a C in it for a reason! Thicker curl creams, souffles, and puddings are ideal for twist-outs, braid-outs, and protective styles.

With so many curl creams on the market, how do you know which one to choose for your hair? We rounded up the 18 top curl creams of 2018. Your curls will thank you!

Growing up with a great aunt who was a hairstylist and salon owner, learning how to do hair styles was like second nature to me. I would do cornrows and twists, even hair cuts on my dolls. As I got older, I would try everything from color to weaves on my own hair. I was pretty good at it and even considering becoming a hair stylist. I always thought doing hair was just a thing all Black girls learned to do growing up. That’s until I started blogging about natural hair, and connected with so many women who don’t know how to two-strand twist, braid or cornrow.

If that’s you, the thought of trying to style your own hair can be daunting. But never fear – it is not too late to learn. Here are some tips for styling your own hair even when you aren’t the best at it:

The Rope Twist Technique Using Camille Rose's Style Setter


Tina Munzu writes:

Over the years I've learned that the most twist-out definition comes from the technique used to twist. A little extra twirling of the hair prior to twisting often results in more defined curls. I got better at this as I tried to teach myself how to install Havana twists. Some refer to this type of twists as rope twists. For when my goal is definition the rope twist technique is my go to. Enjoy the video plus a first impression review of the Camille Rose Coconut Water "Style Setter" product.
