I have curly curly hair and if I treat it with lots of love and respect it has lovely glossy ringlets admired by all. If I neglect it however it respembles a birdsnest after a freak winter storm – lacklustre, knotted, lank and decidely sad. Using the proper products is essential to make the most of curly locks but with an increasing amount of professional curly hair products appearing on salons shelves now (hurrah) what do you choose when they all claim to do the same thing? Here are three of the new products to hit the salons that work and make more than just waves…

SP Polished Waves Curl Cream (200ml) from Wella Professional. Can be used on dry or wet hair and has UV protection and an anti-static formula. As with all Wella Professional products this does exactly what it says it will do and is better for waves than full on curls like mine. No distinctive odour and didn’t leave my hair feeling sticky either, was also light weight and gave a definite bounce to my hair. Loved the soft feeling but could have done with a bit more hold. Wella have a salon finder which gives you your closest salon which will sell the full range of their products. SP Polished Waves Curl Cream RRP £15 for 200ml.

Boing Curling Cream

Boing Curling Cream

Unite Eurotherapy “Boing” Curling Cream - perfectly named this gave better definition to my unruly mop. The addition of coconut oil made my hair feel extra moisturised and the cream smell like a holiday in the Caribbean. Using this made me feel I was proactively doing my hair some good while holding the curls well between washes. “Boing” Curling Cream around £14.85 for 250ml.

Moroccan Oil

Moroccan Oil

Last but not least is my favourite of the three products, Moroccan Oil Intense Curl Cream for curly hair. Favourite in terms of the good that the product did to my hair but not so favourite in terms of the hold. I can’t say this gave me my usual curl definition in the way that the “Boing”  Curling Cream did but boy did my hair feel hydrated and shiny. This is a product that the more you use it the greater the efficacy and I found that putting it onto both dry and wet hair had an equally good effect. The high shine, softness and  gorgeous feel are down to the killer ingredient, Argan oil taken from the Argan Tree which is only really found in Morocco where it has been growing for the last 1.6million years. Made in Israel Moroccan Oil Intense Curl Cream is high in Vitamin E and carotenes and doesn’t leave hair feeling sticky or slick as I expected. There is also a Curl Control Cream and Curl Defining Mousse in the range and  although this isn’t a cheap product a little goes a long way. I will definitely be replenishing the bottle when I finally run out and will be using it in conjunction with another curl cream that really gives hold for the best effect. Moroccan Oil around £23 for 300ml.
