Curly Hair Products in India

Hey you with the beautiful wavy and curly hair!

Struggling to find products that won’t make your hair dry and frizzy? I remember how years ago when I was in college, I could not find anything in my budget. Thankfully, things have changed.

Curly Hair Products in India are now more easily available to us via online websites like Amazon, Flipkart, Nykaa, Honest Products & International sites like Naturalistic Products, Naturismo & more!

If you’re just starting out on your journey, I would suggest you read this first: Beginners Tips For Curly Hair or watch my video tutorial on my channel. Once you’re ready to invest in your curly hair routine, choose from the products I’ve listed below!

I’ve included Shampoos (Cleansing & Clarifying), Conditioners, Deep Conditioners (Hair Masks), Leave in Conditioners, Curl Creams, Mousses, Gels Oils & Accessories! There’s also a separate section for people looking for products for their curly kids! Against each, I have taken care to mention if it is CG Friendly (without sulphates, silicones and drying alcohols) for those who are particular.

The products that I have personally tried, I have given the link of my review under the name or written about my experience. Many others are products that are very popular among the curly hair community in India and globally. I recommend that you do check out reviews of products you are considering on Youtube to be extra sure if it will suit you!

Cowash For Wavy & Curly Hair in India

CG Friendly Cowashes in India

What is cowashing? Co-washing is short for “conditioner-only washing.” It basically cleanses your hair WITHOUT stripping your hair of it’s oils and leaves it softer and more moisturised than a normal shampoo. If you need to wash your hair daily or too frequently, co washing is a great option.

I don’t cowash since it doesn’t suit me but so many curly girls swear by it! In fact it also recommended in a pure CG Routine by Lorraine Massey.  If you want to try- these are some great options! PS- don’t ONLY co-wash. Always shampoo once a week/in 2 weeks for scalp health.

Conditioners For Wavy & Curly Hair in India

Curly Hair Products in India

The BEST thing you can do to your natural hair is to add a conditioner in your routine. Thick, creamy, moisturising conditioners will get soaked up by your dry hair and form a layer of protection from frizz.

Do apply conditioner generously after sectioning your hair and use a wide-toothed comb to spread it uniformly. Remember, comb only after you apply conditioner and never dry. This tip can transform your curly hair! Try it to see!

Deep Conditioners For Wavy & Curly Hair in India

Think of deep conditioners as conditioners on steroids. I mean figuratively 😛 They’re meant to work X5 times as hard as a normal conditioner in one go. Deep conditioners also penetrate the hair strand deeper than a normal conditioner.

This is recommended once a week if you are suffering from dryness and frizz & to keep curls healthy and defined. You can read my guide on Deep Conditioning Curly Hair – How, When, Why for more.

Curly Hair Products in India

After you’re done washing your hair, how do you ensure your curls won’t frizz up? By using a leave in conditioner!

A leave-in is a moisturising product designed to be left in your hair. It is safer to use a  pre-made leave in conditioner than to use diluted conditioner, but honestly many women love and find great results with diluting conditioners too.

You can apply a leave in conditioner and other styling products for curly hair in SO MANY ways! Read this post to find one that will suit YOU: The Ultimate Guide to Styling Wavy & Curly Hair

Leave in Conditioner Spray For Thin, Wavy & Loose Curly Hair

If you have looser curls, wavy hair or fine hair, using conditioners AND a thick, creamy leave in can make your hair feel weighed down. It would be better to use a lighter product like leave in conditioning sprays & mists that help to detangle, reduce frizz without making them limp.

Curly Hair Products in India

A leave in conditioner is used for hydration and moisture but curl creams are used more for hold and definition! Often in this industry, leave in’s and curl creams are interchanged or mixed – i,e some do both the roles.

Either way, it is your call. You can entirely skip leave in’s use curl creams only or use with a leave in or even use a gel after the curl cream. Try and find what suits you.

Gels For Wavy & Curly Hair in India

Hair Gels For Curly Hair in India

A gel is great for curly hair as long as it does not have any drying alcohol as an ingredient. It forms a hard cast around your curls that keeps your curls super defined for longer and protect it from frizzing up.

Oils For Wavy & Curly Hair in India

Oils For Curly Hair in India

Are you even Indian if you don’t oil your hair? 😝

Curly hair THRIVES when you use oils properly. By properly I mean, don’t Champi (drench hair in oil overnight) every time you wash your hair.

Instead do that only once a month and other days, be light-handed with the oil and concentrate on massaging your scalp with it, coating the length lightly and focusing more on the ends! Otherwise, you’ll shampoo more vigorously to remove the oil thereby making hair dryer!

You can use essential oils too but remember to mix it with a carrier oil and test it on a small skin patch before you apply on your scalp.

  1. Indulekha Hair Oil (Rs. 405) I love their applicator handle too! So easy to apply on the scalp.
  2. Castor Oil, Sesame Oil and Black Seed Oil is great for hair growth.
  3. Tea Tree & Rosemary essential oil is great for dandruff prone scalp.
  4. Coconut oil is the only oil that penetrates the hair the most. You can be sensitive to coconut however so remember to check that on your hair.
  5. Jojoba Oil is the only oil that comes close to matching our body’s oil production. It is wonderful for hair.
  6. Argan Oil is one of the lightest oils that is great in reducing frizz and protecting your hair from envirmonmental damages.
  7. Tropic Isle Living Jamaican Black Castor Oil (Rs. 1035)
  8. Righteous Roots Rx Hair Oil (Rs.1800) – So good! A heavenly mix of oils with a good consistency and a fragrance that clears your head. Read my full review here on why I love it so much.
  9. Tropic Isle Strong Roots Red Pimento Hair Growth Oil (Rs.1750)

Accessories

Curly Hair Products in India

Beyond the usual, there are other products you will love having in your arsenal! These include caps to protect your curls at night, spray bottles to refresh your hair on days you don’t wash them and detangling/styling brushes that will give you super defined curls without breaking your hair!

  1. Kent Unique Waterproof Scalp Massage Shampoo Brush  (Rs.436)
    Great for massaging your scalp, increasing rate of hair growth & brilliant to cleanse your scalp when you’re co-washing!
  2. Evolve Naturally Satin Bonnet Sunset – (Rs.789)
    Watch this video to learn how to use this
  3. Stay on Satin Bonnet (R.s.899)
  4. Denman Medium Hair Styling Brush– (Rs.895)
    Ah! My holy grail! It gives me incredibly defined curly hair. Read up up more in my review.
  5. Cholesterol Condition Cap – (Rs.799)
    This is used to increase heat while deep conditioning.
  6. Curly Girl Vibes – Marquee Flairosol -(Rs.1400)
    I compared a normal spray bottle with the Flairosol. Find out who won. 
  7. Tangle Teezer The Original Detangling Brush (Rs.1139)
  8. Wet Brush Pro Detangle Hair Brush (Rs.909)

Diffusers

How do some women with curly hair have such insane volume? They’re super fluffy and even look more defined. It’s all due to using a diffuser with a hair dryer!

It also saves a TON of time drying your hair. A diffuser works by distributing the air flow uniformly so it doesn’t damage natural hair like a normal hair dryer. It also helps lift up roots. Watch my video tutorial on How to Diffuse Curly Hair Without Getting Frizz!

  1. Sonar SN-7730 Hair Dryer With Diffuser (Rs.900)
  2. Segolike Universal Collapsible Silicone Hair Dryer Blower Diffuser – (Rs.680)

  8. Braun Satin Hair 3 HD385 Power Perfection Dryer With Diffuser – (Rs. 4013)

    Hi Pallavi, I read this post and ordered Curly Co diffuser. I came to buy croma dryer and unfortunately its not fitting in it. Do we need to cut the edges in diffuser opening or do I need to buy any other dryer. Please suggest

      Don’t cut! You’ll need to buy another dryer, please make sure the diameter matches before you do. I actually use the diffuser with one hand and hold the dryer in another, I have the same problem. I have recently purchased the sonar hair dryer and diffuser though, only 900 bucks and many curlies in India love it.

      Hi Mythily, you apply it in the same way as you do a leave in, after washing your hair, on wet hair. You take a few pumps, smooth it on your hair with ‘Praying’ method and scrunch up.

    A couple more additions:

    The BBlunt Oh! Natural Hold Gel is CG Friendly and Alcohol free.
    Aloe Veda Silk and Keratin Hair Cream (Protein heavy) isn’t fully CG friendly since it has Dimethicone, but it’s the 12th ingredient in the list. It could be a good leave in conditioner for people who aren’t protein sensitive and starting the CG method.
    The Nature’s Co. Tea Tree Hair Nourishing Cream seems to be CG friendly, but its full ingredients list isn’t declared. Might make a good transition product though.
    Palmer’s Manuka Honey lines are available in Beautiful stores. I use their Shampoo for clarifying, and it has c14-16 olefin sulfonate, which makes a really good clarifying wash. They also have a conditioner which is said to be pretty good.

    Still on the lookout for affordable CG products in India! If only foreign brands like Cantu were cheaper, we’d use it all the time!

    Hi Pallavi……….thank you so much for all your effort and hard work that you have put on for others…. specially the curly girls. This blog is so amazing and helpful to all who want to love their curls. I really appreciate the time you take to add every detail that you feed in here has made life so easy for us. If I’m ever wondering about any products to use on my hair I go through your blog and it has all the answers.

    I have hair which is a mix of 1C- 2C. Flats from the roots and this really messes me up. After every wash they are so different and it feels like they do what they want – So i leave them on their own after styling. It’s been 1 year since I have gone CG friendly and I have started loving my hair now.

    Just a few suggestion if you could give to me regarding the Sabudana DIY – which works really really well for my hair . Can I use Tapioca powder/ flour instead or pearls – this is far easy coz….!

    I have all the help from your blog – it is like Curly Hair Holy blog.

    Hats off to work and please continue it…. Wish we have more manufactures to sell their products in India.

    Thanks a ton!!!!!!!!!Cheers….Deepika

    Some products you could add.
    The Tresemme botanique coconut conditioner (not the one available in Indian market, but it’s available on Amazon) and it’s CG friendly. The Inecto conditioners, has less tgat 1% isopropyl alcohol. These have great slip and very moisturizing.
    All set wet gels, especially the set wet ultimate hold, it’s pretty good. They are all CG friendly. The Schwarzkopf Taft superglue gel has a very good hold, it’s CG friendly.
    These are all available on Amazon.
