Believe it or not, black Friday shopping is right around the corner. If you are a curly girl who has been in search of all the curly things, this is the perfect time to stock up on some curly girl must-haves. Today I’m sharing 11 Curly Hair Products That Should Be On Your Black Friday List In 2020 to give you some ideas for this shopping season.
If you are struggling to care for your curls or looking for some tips and tricks on curly hair care, I have a special gift for you.
I create a quick curly girl cheat sheet that walks you through everything you need to know about curly hair care.
Early on in my curl journey, I felt perplexed at the amount of fun looking gadgets designed to make caring for curly hair easier.
If I’m honest, I let that hold me back from starting the curly girl method for a long time. I couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed by all the things “needed” to get started caring for curly hair. So much so that I wrote a post that has been one of my most visit posts about simplifying the curly girl method. You can check it out here.
Rather than purchase a ton of products right away, I always recommend starting small and growing your library of tools over time.
That being said, whether you are new to the curly girl method or a seasoned curly girl, I have compiled a black Friday list of items you should consider getting adding to your list.
11 Curly Hair Products That Should Be On Your Black Friday List In 2020
If you are not protecting your curls while you sleep, then this should be at the top of your list.
Sleeping on silk versus a traditional pillowcase will allow you to wear your curls multiple days and keep them healthier.
Benefits to sleeping on silk include……
- Reduce breakage – Traditional fabrics like cotton or flannel cause friction while you sleep which can cause breakage to your hair
- Silk retains moisture rather than drawing moisture from your hair like other fabrics
- Prevents tangle because of its sleek texture
One of the amazing benefits of having curly hair is being able to wear it multiple days with minimal refreshing.
The best way to preserve your curls during the night (other than the silk of course) is to use a non-damaging hair tie to fasten your hair to the top of your head. This is called a pineapple.
When your pineapple your hair before your sleep, it keeps all of your curls nestled on top of your head and protects them from falling apart while you toss and turn.

High-Quality Microfiber Towel
Having great curls comes down to establishing healthy consistent habits.
One item you can easily swap out to reduce frizz and breakage is a high-quality microfiber towel.
Traditional towels are harsh on your hair and cause breakage and frizz.
I always recommend investing in a high-quality microfiber towel because they are made with soft fabric with a tighter weave which makes then softer.
Make a habit of using a microfiber towel to plop and scrunch your hair in. Read more about plopping here.
The Dyson Blow Dryer
Dyson released a fancy blow dryer not too long ago and black Friday would be a great time to snag one.
This is a product that I haven’t used yet but I’ve seen dozens of amazing reviews and it’s at the top of my Black Friday list. We’ve used Dyson products in the past and they never disappoint on quality.
The Dyson blow has dozens of features including but not limited to magnetic attachments. It was engineered to dry your hair without damaging it or your scalp. Which is a huge win for curly girls since we are more prone to damage.
It comes with three attachments including a smoothing nozzle, styling concentrator, and diffuser. So you will have an attachment for whatever style you are going for.
You can see all the fancy features here.
As far as the best place to purchase from, Sephora and Ulta always run great sales during black Friday and usually offer free shipping.
Curly Hair Resources
After spending years experimenting with curly hair, I’ve compiled all of my knowledge into both printable resources and video tutorials.
And for black Friday, I’ve combined them all into one package at an extremely discounted price.
The Curl Black Friday Special Includes…..
This Black Friday, I’ve bundles all these resources into one at a special discount.
Non-Toxic Product Line
Surely you have a list full of products you’d like to get during your black Friday run. But I recommend putting your funds toward a long term sustainable product line that is good for your hair.
It took me a long time to switch to non-toxic products. But after doing a ton of research, I truly believe it is the best for your hair and your overall health.
My latest non-toxic curly hair product fav is a line called EVOLVh.
EVOLVh is a high-end curly hair product line that that is committed to formulating innovative products that heal your hair from the inside out.
Many companies fill their products with harmful ingredients that act as a band-aide for your hair but don’t deal with the root issue. Long term, this causes your curls to become dependent on harsh ingredients.
EVOLVh’s products are formulated with clean ingredients that are friendly to the environment. Their goal is function and performance.
A couple of things I love about EVOLVh
- The products have a light pleasant smell – Strong smells in products give me a headache after a while
- Formulated with clean ingredients – It’s a great way to swap out your toxic hair care line with a clean toxic free line
- The products last a long time – A little bit goes a long way
- Free from: Sulfates, gluten, parabens, propylene glycol, silicones, phthalates
- Hydrates, without weighing down – It’s the perfect amount of moisture for my 3a curls
- Medium hold – I love the super defining cream because it offers the perfect amount of hold
- I love that they keep their products simple. You don’t have to try to choose from dozens of different products
I use and highly recommend EVOLVh. My curls are loving these products! I recommend getting started with the curl bundle. It has everything you need to get started on your curly journey.

11 Curly Hair Products That Should Be On Your Black Friday List In 2020
Supplements That Support Hair Growth
This is a good time to stock up supplements that support hair growth. There are dozens on the market and it can be a little overwhelming trying to choose.
The best supplements to support hair, skin, and nails are….
- Daily vitamin or hair, skin, and nails
This combo is good for your health in general, but there is a good amount of research that links them back to promoting healthy hair skin, and nails.
I don’t know about you but as I age, I want all the beauty support I can get.
I use and love a company called Modere for my supplements because they do third party testing for effectiveness. I figure if I am investing in a supplement, I want to make sure it’s working, right? Read this post on the best supplements for hair growth.
Modere usually has really great Black Friday deals.
The Behairful Brush
Yes, brush styling is a thing.
I know it’s hard to wrap your mind around the idea of brushing your hair after you apply products, but the beautiful brush has some magical design that enhanced your curl pattern, definition, and adds shine.
I know it sounds crazy and I was so skeptical about making the purchase.
But the Behairful brush is worth every penny and I think every curly girl should have one in their arsenal of curly hair accessories.

Because curls are particularly at risk for damage and dryness, reconstructive treatments will work wonders for your damaged curls.
If you have color-treated hair like mine, then doing consistent reconstructive treatments is key to having healthy curls.
My three favorite treatments:
Rice water rinse: This product is budget-friendly and super easy to make. Rice water is packed full of protein which is a key building block to your hair strand. Doing a rice water rinse will add shine, increase your curl pattern, and strengthens your hair cuticle.
Shea Moisture Strengthen Restore Treatment Masque: This was one of the first treatments I started using and I still always have it on hand. It’s the best way to add a boost of moisture without overdoing it.
This product always leaves my curls soft and shining.
I love shea moisture because it’s packed full of beneficial ingredients like shea butter, Jamaican black castor oil, peppermint, and apple cider vinegar. The only downside of this product is because it is heavy, you should occasionally use a clarifying wash to prevent product buildup.
Ultra Reconstructive Masque: This product does wonders to help restore damaged or overly dry curly hair.
It is rich in amino and fatty acids (that help repair damage to the hair shaft), strengthens, seals split ends, prevents moisture loss while protecting from future damage.
I notice a huge difference in smoother hair reduces frizz after using this treatment. It is by far my favorite “clean” deep condition/treatment to repair my curls.
This product goes a long way. I consider it well worth the investment.
And if you like using product lines together as I do, EVOLVh has a simplified curl bundle that gives you everything you need for your curls.
A Bougie Spray Bottle
You need a misting spray bottle.
Because typically on day two, curls don’t need a ton of moisture added. Just a few misting sprays is the best way to revive your curls without adding a ton of water.
A Cleansing Scrubber
This is one of the most underrated curly hair products on the market in my opinion.
Adding a curl cleanser brush to your wash routine helps clean your scalp, increase blood circulation, and feels amazing.
I use mine every wash day and take my time doing a scalp massage.
Silk Lined Winter Hat
I spent a good part of last winter searching for a hat that wouldn’t destroy my curls.
There is nothing worse than having a bomb wash day followed by a smothering hat that creates instant frizz.
Here in PA, a hat is essential to stay warm in the winter.
I’m excited to share that I found the perfect silk-lined beanie for this winter season.
Smooth in its very natural, silk is the best match to preserve curls while retaining moisture.
It’s the perfect combination of keeping your head warm while skipping the damage caused by a traditional winter hat.
When it comes to Black Friday shopping this year, be sure to add some of these staple curly hair products to your list to save money and stock your bathroom shelves full of everything your curls need to flourish.
Get everything you need to protect your curls and wear them multiple days by purchasing a silk pillowcase and a puff cuff.
