Curl creams have been very essential to me during my natural curly hair journey and are the secret sauce to the look of my loved curls. A leave-in conditioner alone is usually not enough to get the defined curls, coils and kinks you desire! 

Adding a curly cream or styler on top of your moisturiser will give your hair definition and shine, enhancing the already gorgeous curl pattern you have naturally. Below are some of my recommended curl creams that give amazing results alongside keeping your hair moisturised and healthy.

UK Curly Girl's mybest Summary

If you haven't introduced curl creams to your hair routine, after reading this I hope you now test them out! Curl creams really give an amazing finish to curls and make your wash & gos last longer and look smoother. 

To avoid flakes or messes when using with other leave-ins, I recommend you do the hand test; place a bit of both products you want to use together on your hand and mix them. If they mix together smoothly and leave no flaky or white residue they will most likely work well together in your hair. If not this could be a combo to avoid.
