Our favorite glycerin free curl products this summer

By now you know that while glycerin isn't *bad*, it is not your bff for a hot curl summer! We are making finding your perfect, glycerin free products that much easier by rounding up the five we can't stop reaching for!


Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask

Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask

Self care calling your name? We have just the thing for those stressed out curls! The Eva NYC Therapy Session Mask is protein-containing for your bounciest curls yet. It is glycerin free (duh!). Plus, according to clinical tests, it will give you 2X stronger hair and 3X hydration after just one use! The best part? This miracle mask only needs 2-5 minutes to work. You can try this mask in this month’s mailer here, while supplies last!


Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Gel

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Gel

The perfect addition to your frizz fighting mission. This gel contains Anti-Frizz Nano Technology (yes- it is as cool as it sounds!). Plus, it is powered by sericin (a protein derived from silk) to lock in moisture and lock out humidity all summer long. It is protein-containing for those bouncy curls, has a medium to heavy hold, and even contains a UV filter to prevent against environmental stressors. And again, it’s on this list so obviously it’s glycerin free! You can try the Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Gel before buying the full size - try it in our Best of Gels Starter Pack here!


Fix My Curls Curl Quenching Flax Seed Gelly 

Fix My Curls Flax Seed Gelly

Consider your curls fixed. This Flax Seed Gelly is both moisturizing and protein free. It has flaxseed extract as its second ingredient AND boasts a very minimal ingredient list (we love to see it!). It is sure to give your curls a great gel cast and a strong hold. All while being (you guessed it)- glycerin free! Lucky for you - this product is available on our website here aka no more international shipping charges for our US curlies!


Inahsi Define and Shine Gel 

Inahsi Define and Shine Fragrance Free Gel

For your most defined and shined curls of the summer, look no further! The Inahsi Define and Shine Gel is lightweight and fragrance free. It is heavy on the protein and the shine, but free from glycerin. You can try this + 5 more of our favorite gels in our Best of Gels Starter Pack here!


Ecoslay Peppermint Schnapps

Ecoslay Peppermint Schnapps
Although peppermint is not the most summery of scents, this product is too good to not include! The EcoSlay Peppermint Schnapps is a really unique oil-based cleanser / shampoo! We love this product because of the clean & minimal ingredients, the smell, and the fact that it is a VERY gentle shampoo that is great for drier hair types. Unlike a co-wash, this cleanser will not ADD heavy moisture, and will instead leave your scalp lightweight and clean feeling. Honestly, what more could you ask for? Try it in our November Mailer here!
