No wonder some of the most brilliant tricks we’ve learned have come straight from the curl community. Whether your goal is to tame frizz, boost volume, or create definition that lasts for days, check out these tips crowdsourced from our best reviews.

Refresh Your Waves
Try this: Advanced Climate Control® Restore + Revive Bi-Phase
Curl styling tip: “This product sprays well directly onto hair, or into the palm of your hand then smoothed over hair. I also dampened my hands with water and smoothed my hair, then added more of this refresher. Within a minute or two, my type 2b waves emerged after a night of not pineappling or sleeping on a silk or satin pillow case. It controlled my frizz and recreated the waves from the day before.” – Midori A., Loose Curls

Apply with a Comb
Try this: Advanced Climate Control® Featherlight Styling Cream
Curl styling tip: “I use [Featherlight Styling Cream] first and then use the new Advanced Climate Control gel. I comb through with a fine-tooth comb to make sure I get every hair, and then scrunch to achieve soft, bouncy curls.” – Donna W., Classic Curls

Craft a Cocktail
Try this: VitalCurl™+ Define & Shine Styling Gel-Cream
Curl styling tip: “A cocktail of this gel cream mixed with a little gel is awesome on curls too!” – SLM, Tight Curls

Spray to Defrizz
Try this: Botanical Boost® Curl Energizing & Refreshing Spray
Curl styling tip: “I use this product after towel drying my hair. I spray it on and comb. This helps keeps the frizzies at bay until I can use the Tress Effects Styling Gel. I also use it in between washes to refresh my curls!” – C., Tight Curls

Lose the Crunch
Try this: Clear Control Pomade
Curl styling tip: “I tend to use more gel than my stylist uses, so my hair is a bit crunchy when I finish. This product is perfect for removing the crunchiness and makes my hair feel soft.” – Sarabeth, Tight Curls

Turn Up the Volume
Try this: PlayCurl® Amplifying Foam
Curl styling tip: “I use the Amplifying Foam on my roots only, after I have combed through some of the Featherlight cream. The foam does seem to help with lifting my roots a bit and adding some volume.” – Lori, Classic Curls

Twist It Out
Try this: Curl Quencher® Hydrafusion Intense Curl Cream
Curl styling tip: “I have type 4 hair and I use this as part of my LOC [Liquid, Oil, Cream styling method]. My twist out lasts anywhere from 3 to 4 days and it’s never dry. The twists dry so shiny I don’t want to take them out.” – Sabrina, Kinky Curls

Finish Strong
Try this: PlayCurl® Amplifying Styling Spray
Curl styling tip: “I use this product after my hair is styled with the Advanced Climate Control gel and I have scrunched out the crunch – it gives my curls and waves extra bounce and hold!” – Megan, Classic Curls

Sleep on It
Try this: Finishing Mist Setting & Holding Spray
Curl styling tip: “I style at night and break my cast in the morning. Because of this, I like a nice cast that holds throughout the night. This is perfect. Gives a great cast, helps keep my curls together and lasts for several days. I literally use this every single time I style. It’s the one thing that never varies in my routine.” – Courtney, Tight Curls

Wash and Go
Try this: Curl Immersion™ Silky Soufflé Setting Crème
Curl styling tip: “After I wash my deep conditioner out, when I step out the shower, I make sure my hair is absolutely *saturated* with water. Then, I add a healthy amount of this product to each section of my hair and add the Ouidad Hi-Defining Custard over that. I shake my hair like a rockstar so my curls can settle into place and voilà! True wash & *go* styling. Done! No need to spend 3 hours defining each individual curl or shingling or raking.” – Sunny, Kinky Curls

Diffuse for a Boost
Try this: Curl Last™ Flexible-Hold Hairspray
Curl styling tip: “I recently started diffusing my hair dry which has helped tremendously with getting more curl and volume, and this hairspray is my final step. I can leave the house with my hair looking great and I think this hairspray really helps it last all day.” – Leslie H., Loose Curls
