If you’re natural, finding the perfect cocktail to define your curls, coils and kinds is like searching for the Holy Grail — especially when you’re transitioning!

As new growth comes in and you begin sporting two textures, it’s important to choose products that moisturize your thirsty curls, while providing definition and frizz-free shine. But with all the products cluttering the shelves, how do you choose?

We conducted an informal survey of top stylists, beauty bloggers and our natural-haired girlfriends, and came up with a list of the top haircare brands for chemical-free tresses (in no particular order, of course). Happy hairstyling!
