Whatever your curl type, these well-versed Black beauty editors have something for you. Scroll through below for all their most used and loved products for natural texture.

1. Sunny In Denbigh Creamy Leave-In Conditioner: $45

“This leave-in conditioner is the best thing to ever touch my hair. As a 4C girlie who’s prone to breakage, moisture is what my hair needs the most. This leave-in is formulated with nourishing ingredients like shea butter and honey to give me pillow soft curls.” Nerisha Penrose (ELLE Magazine, Assistant Editor)

2. Felicia Leatherwood Detangler Brush: $18.99

“If I had a dollar for all the fine-tooth combs that broke in my hair, I’d be one rich woman. The Felicia Leatherwood Detangler Brush has saved my hair one too many times. This handy brush has cut my detangling time in half and helps move the product seamlessly through my strands.” —NP (ELLE Magazine, Assistant Editor)

3. Rucker Roots Smoothing Sulfate Free Shampoo: $13.99

“My hair and scalp tend to get oily, so I need a shampoo that is going to thoroughly remove buildup without leaving my hair feeling stripped. This one from Rucker Roots does just that. When I rub this on my scalp and hair, they instantly feel refreshed. The potent blend of shea butter, quinoa, avocado, and olive oil in this shampoo’s formula leaves my hair feeling moisturized even before applying conditioner.” Olivia Hancock (Byrdie, Associate Editor)

4. The Doux Big Poppa Defining Gel: $13.99

“When I’m wearing my hair curly, I always round out my routine with a gel. Though I have a few favorites, this one from The Doux tops my list. It provides my curls with long-lasting definition minus the crunchy effect some gels tend to leave behind.” —OH (Byrdie, Associate Editor)

5. LottaBody Refine Me Curl Defining Mousse: $4.97

“Mousse is another one of my go-to products in my curly hair routine. It helps me quickly refresh my hair when it’s looking a bit dry. Because it’s made with milk protein and honey, this mousse from LottaBody is able to infuse my hair with intense levels of hydration and shine. After running a few pumps through my hair, my curls always look ultra-defined.” —OH (Byrdie, Associate Editor)

6. CurlyWorld Sham-Free Hair & Scalp Cleanser: $32.23

“The Sham-Free Hair and Scalp Cleanser is easily one of my favorite shampoos of all time. It’s super gentle, and contains ingredients like coconut water and citric acid that leave a refreshing tingle on my scalp when I use it. The cleanser’s formula makes it easy to detangle my hair with fingers in the shower, and helps hydrate even my driest ends at the same time. Bonus: It also smells great!” Tiffany Dodson (Harper’s Bazaar, Associate Beauty Commerce Editor)

7. Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask: $38

“Anyone who really knows me will agree that I live for a weekly deep conditioning session, and lately I’ve been reaching for Briogeo’s Don’t Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask. My 4A hair tends to get pretty dry fairly quickly, and this hydrating mask (which is ideal for those with dry or damaged hair types) is essential to help it get its groove back. The mask offers lots of slip, which makes it a breeze to use with a detangling brush or your fingers, and always leaves my hair feeling nourished once I rinse it all out.” —TD (Harper’s Bazaar, Associate Beauty Commerce Editor)
