‘Go natural,’ they said.
‘Your curls gon be poppin’,’ they said.
But what they forgot to tell you was this: discovering your curl pattern can take work – and your curls probably won’t pop without the help of some products.
But with each curl enhancer promising to do the same thing for your hair, it’s not always easy to determine which products will actually get the job done.
Lucky for you, we’ve put together a list of some of the best curl enhancer products on the market.
Once you’ve found the perfect product for your curls, there’ll be no turning back.
Check out the list below.
Shea Moisture is one of the most popular brands on the natural hair market. This curl enhancing smoothie is designed to hydrate your hair and bring your natural curl pattern to life. This product contains natural ingredients and can be used daily.
Cantu is another popular (and affordable) brand. This moisturizing curl cream can help keep your hair healthy while also reducing frizz and adding volume.
This product does what it’s advertised to do, but I’d suggest using it sparingly. In my personal experience, this product is someone sticky and can leave residue in your hair depending on your hair type.
Infused with grape seed and jasmine, this product promises to define your curls like no other. This product is designed to work on a variety of hair types and won’t leave your hair feeling ‘crunchy’.
As someone with naturally tight curls, this is one of my favorite curl enhancers. I stayed away from curl enhancing products for years because I didn’t want to use anything that would make my hair shrink (aka look even shorter).
This product manages to define curls and reduce shrinkage at the same time. It’s also very light and hasn’t left any residue in my hair.
The price tag on this product may be a bit higher than some of the others on the list, but if you’re ready to make an investment in your hair, it’s definitely worth it. This curl enhancer by Camille Rose features natural ingredients and will keep your curls nourished and soft.
If you’re looking for a long lasting hold, this product is exactly what you’re looking for. Known to keep your curls bouncy and tight for days on end, the As I Am Curling Jelly can work on almost all hair types.
However, many customers have noted that it tends to keep curls tighter than some other products so that’s something to consider before purchasing.
If you’ve ever used a curl enhancer before, you know that some of them have a tendency to leave build up/residue in your hair. Fortunately, that’s not the case with this product.
This Curly Curl Cream has a non-greasy formula that will leave your curls full of volume and your hair looking and feeling clean.
This product is somewhat of a hidden gem compared to the others, but once you use it you may just be hooked. Your curls will not only be defined, but this item will help strengthen your hair as well.

Naturalistas know that one of the most common struggles is trying to get your hair to shine. Natural hair can look dull and have a hard time retaining moisture.
Not only will this product make your curls pop, but it’ll also help your hair stay shiny.
Kinky Curly’s Curling Custard may not be an item that you see on the shelves of your local drug store, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth your attention. This product comes highly recommended thanks to it’s long lasting hold, frizz-free formula, and all-natural ingredients.
