Daily Routine for Curly Hair: How I Fight Frizz and Achieve Defined Curls


I have struggled for my entire life trying to find the perfect combination of products to tame my unruly, curly hair. After 20.5 years, I have finally succeeded! Before I started using these products my hair would never cooperate. Half of it would curl, some pieces would lie flat, and all of it was frizzy. All I wanted was to have hair that curled evenly! I decided to try some new products on a whim, and they ended up being the perfect match for the beast that is my hair. The best part? All of the products are from the drugstore!



I use the full line of L’Oreal EverCurl products in conjunction with a Turbie Twist and a Wet Brush. My hair care routine takes about 10 minutes and only uses 5 products in total! The end result? Hair that looks like this:



Here’s how I do it.


In the Shower

I start off by washing my hair thoroughly with the L’Oreal EverCurl Shampoo. After rinsing it out, I apply the EverCurl Conditioner to the bottom 3/4 of my hair. I leave the conditioner in while I do everything else. When it’s time to get out of the shower, I run through my hair with the Wet Brush Paddle Brush to wash out the conditioner.


Out of the Shower

I squeeze the excess water out and put my hair in a Turbie Twist. I leave it on for about 10-15 minutes to allow my hair to dry. After removing my hair from the towel, I use about two pumps of the EverCurl Sculpt & Hold Cream-Gel. I first part my hair on the left side and then finger-comb the product through my hair. I then let my hair finish air-drying! That’s it, folks, my entire hair care routine.



I’ve found that it doesn’t make a difference whether I wash my hair in the morning or at night. Even when I sleep on my wet hair, the curls come out perfectly in the morning! If I ever don’t feel like washing my hair, I use the Dove Detox and Purify Dry Shampoo. This tends to flattenย out my curls, so I normally end up putting my hair in a braid or a bun.



Have you guys ever struggled with your hair? What was your perfect solution?

  • I have to share this with my sister! She has curly hair and sometimes she struggles so hard with it. I have pretty straight hair, but I think curly hair products fight frizz the best so I love finding good curly hair products.

    During the summer months I try to wear my hair naturally (wavy, curly hair) but the frizz on it is terrible. I think I have a coupon for this, so I may have to try it out!

  • Teresa

    I love the L’Oreal Everpure line! It has been so great at keeping my hair smooth!

    • Lauren Pepperman

      I’m glad it works for you, too! Thanks for reading!

  • I have heard great things about this shampoo and conditioner for people with curly hair!

    • Lauren Pepperman

      They’re awesome! Thanks for reading, McKenna!

  • I’ve heard good things about the EverPure line but haven’t tried it yet. I’m definitely interested though. Also, not quite sure what I’d do without my wet brush.

    • Lauren Pepperman

      If you try it out let me know how it works for you! I’m obsessed with my wet brush! I can only brush my hair when it’s wet since it’s curly so it’s perfect for me.

  • It’s lovely to see someone embracing their natural, beautiful hair instead of straightening it daily like I used to. Will defo try these products and techniques.

    • Lauren Pepperman

      Let me know how it works for you!

  • amy

    Sounds like great products! I have stick straight hair so I don’t this would work for me, but I know tons of friends who would love this!
