These Non-Curly Hair Products Just Rocked My Curly Hair World

Choosing hair products can be a deeply personal matter. And with clever marketing, many of us have tunnel vision when it comes to reading labels.

I recently got my hands on Moroccanoil's new Smoothing collection. The product does not boast an impressive curl-specific formula, nor does it feature a photo of a woman with gorgeous locks. But it does have two key ingredients I love to use on my hair: coconut oil and argan oil. And it turns out these "non-curly" hair products worked some magic.
