LEAVE-IN CONDITIONERS FOR CURLY HAIR; notestried & tested; These formulas promise defined, frizz-free curls but which ones really worked their magic on unruly hair?
Noughty Wave Hello Curl Defining Taming Cream, PS6.99
Formula: A thick cream with camellia oil to tame curls and flyaways. With mango butter to condition so you don't lose smoothness and movement. Our very curly-haired tester Flavia says: 'Smelled nice and bubblegummy and gave me big bouncy curls. I had to use a lot, but that's ok at this price. Not revolutionary, but a good solid choice that won't let you down.'
Cantu Natural Hair Moisturizing Curl Activator Cream, PS7.99
Formula: For defined curls and extra bounce, this activator claims to deliver weightless results using a silicone and sulphate-free formula. Flavia says: 'This gave off such an "all-natural" vibe that I really wanted it to be excellent. It felt "clean" on my hair, but just too watery to give my curls the structure they need to stop me looking like a mop.'
Sebastian Professional Twisted Curl Reviver Styling Spray, PS18 Formula: Designed for anything from bouffy waves to serious corkscrew curls, this uses red seaweed extract for flexibility and control in one.
Flavia says: 'Smelled like expensive perfume, and had a thick texture. It went on well, gave me a good curl and left me frizz-free. But, I used A LOT of it and you can't justify using half a bottle when it costs this much.'
Boots Essentials Curl Creme, PS1.99 Formula: For natural or permed curls, this promises shine and frizz control without weighing hair down. Flavia says: 'This gem is hands-down the best product for my hair I have EVER used. It looks like simply packaged pink gunk, but it smells amazing, coats curls beautifully and gives me frizz-free bounce for at least three days. I went and stockpiled this straightaway.'
