Allure’s social media manager explains how to keep your curls in check.

Curly-haired girls know that avoiding frizz can be tricky. If you don’t have your routine down to a T, then poof! your spirals start to fuzz. And since finding the right products and tools is often half the battle, this beauty editor-approved list should make your life a little easier – and your curls silky smooth.

1. DevaCurl Heaven in Hair Intense Moisture Treatment

This in-shower hair mask is the perfect way to give your hair a healthy dose of moisture. Massage it into your scalp before running it through the length of your hair. Once your hair is fully coated, pile it on top of your head in a ballerina bun-style, and let it sit for 15-30 minutes before rinsing it out.

2. Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo

Normally, you’d use shampoo then condition, but after using a hair mask, it’s best to rinse thoroughly with a frizz-controlling shampoo, like this one. This will lock in your hair’s moisture while also cleaning away any residue.

3. DevaCurl Light Defining Gel Soft Hold No-Crunch Styler

After washing your hair, blot it dry with a microfiber towel to avoid roughing up the cuticle (which will cause your hair to frizz). It’s important to use this gel immediately after washing your hair, because this is when your hair retains the most product. Squirt a quarter-size amount of product into your palms and work it between your hands. Starting at the root, massage the gel into your scalp, then add more gel to your palms and run it from mid-lengths to ends in small sections until you’ve slicked it through all of your hair.

4. DevaCurl Deva Dryer

This blow-dryer with its amazing – albeit weird-looking – diffuser will be your new BFF if you have curly hair. The attachment is shaped like a hand, so you can massage your scalp as you dry your hair, but what’s more important is that its five prongs and 50 air vents gently surround the curls with air, rather than blast them with a strong stream, which can lead to — you guessed it — more frizz. Instead, the 360-degree airflow leaves spirals soft, bouncy, and completely fuzz-free.

5. DevaCurl Set It Free Moisture Lock Finishing Spray

This hydrating and finishing spray keeps your curls springy and smooth all day long. Start by spraying the roots, then flip your head upside down and spray the rest of your hair from mid-lengths to ends. Scrunch your curls in all sections in order to let the curls coil correctly.
