1. The Devacurl Devadryer and Devafuser, $159
Sure, it’s probably a whole lot pricier than your ordinary blowdryer and the diffuser ($45 on it’s own) is incredibly more expensive than a traditional one. If you can get past the price though, this thing is a game changer! The dryer is professional grade and the Devafuser adds lift to roots without disrupting your curl pattern. I’m not a big fan of using blowdryers, but I actually trust this one and think it’s worth the splurge.
2. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, $44
I wouldn’t dare try to sell anyone on dry shampoo in general. If you’re not into it, you’re not into it. That being said, if you do like dry shampoos, this one is THE BEST. I used this a lot when I was doing roller sets to make the curls less Shirley Temple-ish and more modern.
3. Ouidad Curl Immersion Co-Wash Cleansing Conditioner, $36
There’s nothing like using products designed specifically for curls. If you’re a new Natural, trust me, it makes all the difference. This cleansing conditioner by Ouidad is recommended for tight curls and kinks. It hydrates, defines, all without sulfates and parabens. Warning— once you try the conditioner you’ll be cashing out on the entire line in no time.
