Silicone free styling product for not very curly hair
Sorted for shampoo and conditioner. I have wavy-ish hair that is fairly short but horribly fluffy due to choppy cut and lots of highlights. I need something to calm down the fluff whilst not weighing down my hair.
I don't need something that will hold or define curls because I just wear it wavy. Any recommendations?
Boots curl cream works well for calming down fluff. It does contain alcohol which can tend to make the hair a bit crispy, however if you water it down a bit before you use it, it should calm it down without leaving it crispy.
The alcohol denat is a drying alcohol - probably want to avoid that. Tesco blue gel is good. Into wet hair scrunch out. Instead of curl creme just leave in ordinary silicone free conditioner. Superdrug extracts have several without silicone. One of the tesco own brand ones is silicone free and wax/paraffin free the others have some heavy wax or oil. Theres a very good Facebook group for curlies
I have very fine fluffy wavy hair and have just started using LÓreal Botanicals Safflower. I have tried a lot of things around the same price mark and a lot of oils and things. This is my favourite by a long chalk.
Aveda damage remedy is great but too expensive for me.
