3. Bumble and bumble Bb. Curl (Style) Defining Creme ($31) Dry curls, be gone! This defining creme is going to solve all your curly-haired woes. While the magic-in-a-bottle smells like a citrus paradise, its formula will protect your hair from dehydrating UV rays.

7. Aveda be curly™ co-wash ($24): Has your hair seen better days? Don’t fret — this co-wash will completely transform your curly hair to look luxurious. Its formula (which is made with babassu oil) is supposed to moisturize your hair for up to three days. Touchable, frizz-free curls? Yeah, we want that.
8. Denman 7 Row Classic Styling Brush ($13): While most curly-haired mavens wouldn’t dare touch their tendrils with a brush, this guy will protect your stands rather than destroying them. With smooth, ball-ended pins, you won’t have to worry about breakage ever again. Use this baby when you are fresh out of the shower for pain-free detangling that doesn’t bring on the frizz.
