Curly hair needs a special type of styling product. Spray gels are ideal for curls because they deliver a light amount of product onto your curly coif so that ringlets are enhanced without being weighed down. Spray gels made specifically for curls can also help to add volume, fight frizz or boost body. Scrunch a spray gel into damp strands for extra body, or spray into dry hair to add texture and movement.
