Curly hair stands out as a testament to natural beauty and grace. People with curly locks often navigate a different range of products, aiming to strike the perfect balance between moisture, hold, and shine.
Strut Hair Care recognises this challenge and seeks to simplify it. Understanding that not all curls are created equal is essential, and the right products can make a difference. This blog will better list the best hair care products tailored for those twists and turns.
Understanding Curl Types
Understanding your curl type is important, especially in Australia, where diverse hair types flourish under our unique climate. Curl types range from wavy to coily, presenting characteristics and care needs.
The most common classification breaks curls down into four types: Type 1 (straight), Type 2 (wavy), Type 3 (curly), and Type 4 (coily). Wavy hair (Type 2) tends to bend slightly and range from loose to more defined S-shaped waves. Curly hair (Type 3) spirals more distinctly and can vary from loose curls to tight ringlets.
Coily hair (Type 4), often the most fragile, coils tightly into Z-shaped patterns or zigzags. Recognising your curl type isn’t just about naming; it’s the first step in selecting products that enhance, protect, and celebrate your unique hair structure. With this knowledge, you’re better equipped to provide your curls with the tailored care they deserve.

Curly Hair Tips
- Due to Australia’s often dry climate, moisturise your curls using a good quality conditioner or hair oil.
- Wear a hat or use hair products with UV protection to shield your curls from the harsh Australian sun.
- Limit washing to 2-3 times a week to prevent stripping natural oils, which is essential for curl health.
- They are gentler and help retain the natural moisture in your hair.
- Do a deep conditioning treatment once a week, especially if you frequent the beach or pool.
- This helps to seal cuticles, ensuring shinier and less frizzy curls.
- Dry your hair with a microfibre towel or cotton t-shirt to reduce frizz and breakage.
- Only detangle your hair when wet using a wide-toothed comb or fingers.
- If using a hair dryer, use a diffuser attachment. It distributes heat evenly and reduces frizz.
- Too much heat can damage curls. If you must, always use a heat protectant.
- After beach visits, rinse your hair. Sea salt can dry out your curls.
- Consider a silk or satin pillowcase to reduce friction and breakage overnight.
- Regular trims prevent split ends and keep your curls looking fresh.
- Drink plenty of water. Hydration from within benefits hair health.
- Invest in Australian-made hair products tailored to local climate and water quality.
