Best 10 Curl Defining Products

It’s Summer time and defining our curls is our top priority! In the spirit of wash and go madness we thought it would be awesome to compile a list of what we consider to be the best 10 Curl defining creams or gels on the market. Some of these products you have probably tried before, some might be on your list to try. Either way lets go!

1. Eco Styler Olive Oil Styling Gel

Eco Styler

I do not know about you, but this gel has been in my life for at least five years regardless of any of the new products that are on the market. It is most definitely and oldie but goodie at this point because sometimes we crave that maximum definition and hold that this gel delivers.


You can find Eco Styler almost anywhere and the price tag is very budget friendly. If you are looking for great hold and frizz-less definition. This is the gel is a great choice.

2. Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie

Summertime reminds me of coconuts, beaches and the smell of sunscreen which coincidentally is what I am reminded of whenever I use this lightweight holding cream.

This product is one of the oldest from the Shea Moisture brand, and even though Shea Moisture has expanded its product offering this gel remains a curly girl fave.

If you want a little definition and just enough hold to show off those curls, this gel is perfect. You will have no crunch and your hair will be light fluffy and airy after use.

3. Aunt Jackies Don’t Shrink Flaxseed Elongating Curling Gel

I love this gel! I could end it there but I won’t because I am sure you want to know why. It absolutely defines your curls but my favorite part is the fact that the gel is enriched with flax seeds and wheat proteins.

When your styler heals your hair and makes it strong at the same time, what more could you ask for?

As a matter of fact, defining your curls, while a priority for this awesome product becomes almost secondary to its health benefits.

4. As I Am Curling Jelly

As I Am

As I Am has my heart and I must admit, even though the brand has been around for a hot minute, I recently fell in love with all of their products including their curly jelly.

You will not get the crunchy hold of Eco styler but you will get a nice hold and your curls will look amazing after using this product.

We love the smell, we love the hold, you cannot go wrong with anything from As I Am.

Eco styler gel is really hyped up, it doesn’t work so well on my 3c 4a combo hair

Sasha Santana

I see 3 already

Fred Huntsman

Yes

Dabney Ross Jones

I did an experiment with Shea Moisture. I have 4b hair and I wanted to do a wash and go. If you think Shea moisture will curl your hair, it won’t. It took a long time to dry and my hair was white all day. Eco styled for me.

Tolani Adekoya

I use it before eco styler gel when I do a bun and it really does enhance curls. Try that I got it from YouTube. Oh and regarding the white stuff you have to brush it out I would only recommend this for packing your hair

Gwen Plumkisses Dennis

I used eco styler, and as I am but eden body works curl definition cream works wonders on my 4b hair too. You can also use a diffuser for a bomb hold on them wash and go’s

Patricia A Wallace

Every time I used the Eco styler gel my hair starts to have white flakes on in. Any suggestions on preventing the flakes?

Sharii Russell

Patricia A Wallace MIX products in hand with eco, if it gets frothy it is not a good mixture and will flake. if it stays creamy and smooth it is okay. you can do this with any product to see if they mix well together.

Ebonie Parker

Love my Shea Moisture smoothie! I have quite a few that define my coils.

Shante Parker

Is it true that exostyler is bad? As in the ingredients inside?

Mel Castillo

Talia Waajid curls and crinkles setting lotion is the bomb.
