One question I am very often asked by my readers is the curly hair products they should be using. Though I review many products that I use right here or mention them frequently on my Instagram page, I know it can be very confusing because they are scattered here and there. So here’s a compilation post for my curly hair product suggestions in India. These are products that either I love or my readers love.
One really important point is that no matter what products you use, if your curly hair routine is wrong or you are making any of these mistakes, you will not see results. So make sure your hair routine is on point 🙂 – My curly hair routine.

Shampoos for curly hair in India
If you have read this post – How to wash & condition curly hair, you would know that I am not at all particular about the shampoo that I use. Any decent shampoo will do the trick. I love my sulphates because they give bounce and volume. So I shampoo at least once a week. For other washes, I prefer co washing.
And there’s a big myth that a shampoo can make your curls look beautiful. I’ve had many readers ask me what shampoo they should use to get beautiful curls. The answer is – Any! Because shampoos only clean. Conditioners and creams are what determine the appearance of your curls, along with the right routine.
Anyhow, here’s a list of shampoos that I use (but you can use any):
- The Body Shop Ginger Anti Dandruff Shampoo
- Head and shoulders
- Pantene Lively Clean Shampoo – silicone free shampoo (perfect for clarifying for those of you who don’t use silicones)
- Fabindia Herbal Daily Use Shampoo – sulphate free, silicone free
- Jason Natural Dandruff Relief Shampoo – sulphate free, silicone free
