A Men’s Guide to Caring for Curly Hair

Curly hair care guide for men

It can be a powerful feeling when men are allowed to embrace their natural, curly hair. However, it’s essential for men to nourish their curly hair with the right products and care. Natural and curly hair can often become dry, frizzy, and can easily be susceptible to breakage. Due to the tight coils of curly hair, it can be harder for the oils that the scalp naturally creates to travel the length of the hair, which can cause dryness that can lead to excessive breakage. 

If you are looking for curly hair solutions to achieve frizz-free, defined, and healthy-looking natural hair that won’t have you running to the barber for a buzz cut, keep reading to discover all of what Luster’s Products have to offer.

To achieve the best curls, it’s important to have a routine set in place along with the right products and ingredients. Look for products that contain highly moisturizing ingredients such as argan oil, olive oil, and panthenol that synergistically blend to draw moisture to the hair while helping to improve the look of dry hair. Avoid products with drying ingredients like sulfates and parabens and always wear a du-rag at night or sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase to lock in moisture while avoiding breakage overnight. 

Pro tips:

  • Wash with a clarifying shampoo once a month to avoid product buildup
  • Co-wash hair with a lightweight conditioner 1-2 times a month to maintain moisture
  • Gently detangle hair when conditioning to avoid breakage
  • Use a moisturizing leave-in conditioner to keep hair nourished

Here are our top tips and recommendations for your curly hair:

Don’t Wash Your Hair Every Day 

Washing hair too regularly can result in the scalp becoming irritated, stripping the hair of its natural oils, and can lead to breakage. Washing your hair at least once a week with a sulfate-free shampoo can cleanse the scalp while helping to replenish the hair’s natural oil. Our SCurl Charcoal Free Mint Shampoo enriched with castor oil, certified organic olive oil, peppermint oil, and activated charcoal works to gently cleanse and exfoliate the scalp. 


  • Gentle sulfate-free formula
  • Activated Charcoal deeply cleanses the hair and scalp
  • Peppermint Oil helps to soothe & moisturize dry, irritated scalp
  • Castor Oil and certified organic Olive Oil nourish and condition 
  • Balances moisture to restore dry hair 
  • Detangles
  • Ideal for all hair types and textures

Condition Your Hair

Again, due to it being harder for oils to travel down the length of coils, naturally curly hair can become noticeably drier. It’s important to keep curls protected in the colder, drier months as well as have a go-to leave-in conditioner year-round. The SCurl Free Flow Leave-In Conditioner works to draw in and maintain moisture. Enriched with certified organic shea butter, coconut oil, and olive oil this highly nourishing conditioner is ideal for all hair types.

Support Your Natural Hair 

It is imperative to support your natural hair with products that work to lock in moisture, avoid dryness, and prevent breakage. Our SCurl Free Flow Instant Moisturizer Spray helps to maintain and condition curly while locking in moisture. This refreshing spray is enriched with nourishing coconut oil, strengthening olive oil, plus nourishing panthenol (ProVitamin B5 and Vitamin E.

Protect Your Curly Hair 

Unfortunately, what can start as refreshed, moisturized, and resilient hair at the beginning of the day, can turn into dry, frizzy, untamed hair by the end of the day. Using a silk or satin lined hat or silk or satin du-rag can help to lock in moisture and prevent hair from breakage while shielding the hair from environmental and free radical damage that can cause frizz while causing dryness or irritation.
