Curly hair care product recommendation

Dear EF Members,

My daughter has curly hairs and I am looking for some good product for her hair care. After checking here and there curl Q seems to have good products. Does anyone know where can I buy curl Q products here in Switzerland? Or can anyone recommend product similar to such.

Hi there. It really depends on what kind of hair your daughter has, curly is not enough information. It goes from thin hair - very small curls - frizzy curls - ringlets - thick hair - dry hair - into all the types of hair our black friends have ....

I got very thick hair and loads of it and ringlets when they're happy or just lots of hair when they're not.
Should that be close to your daughter's type try: Redken "Fresh Curls Shampoo" that is very good but unfortunately Redken replaced it, see further down. Also pretty good is L'Oreal "Curl Contour Hydra Cell" Shampoo.

There is Redken "curvaceous shampoo" (replacement of the one above mentioned) which seems fine. The Redken "curvaceous conditioner" is fine but not as good as the product they sold before. There is a "Curl Contour Hydra Cell conditioner" which is not bad BUT you got to use very little of that as it can put unwanted weight on the curls.

For dry curls coconut-oil and - even better - sesame oil does wonders. Put it in, leave it there for a while, then wash your hair. Do not use too big a dose of these oils just as much as the hair can actually suck up.

Hope that helps.

I have a mass of curls and I find that L'Oreal's Hollywood Waves sculpting creme keeps them nicely under control. I put it on while my hair is still damp and it doesn't go crunchy. Evercurl, also by L'Oreal, is good too.

This one?

Evercurl doesn't seem to be available in Switzerland? Don't tease us, mate!

Re: Curly hair care product recommendation

She is 20 month old and her hairs are not enough long to determine exact hair type. However after little study about the hair types I find them either 3a or 3b as shown in below link. Probably in between.

http://www.curls.biz/curly-hair-type-guide.html

And they seems to be dry.

Any further suggestions?

I am not an expert but shouldnīt you use baby shampoo rather than adult shampoos?

And a dab of olive oil or any other gentle vegetable oil.

Label m have a great oil for protecting hair. The tiniest dab works on Little Rufus' curley hair. We also condition it. Use an afro or wide toothed comb, not a brush.
