Conditioner for curly hair: why it’s needed
There are many variations of the curl, ranging from a light wave to a spring tight coil. It depends on the curvature of strands as to where you sit on the curly-hair scale.
Curvature (the bends in your hair that make it curly) act as a hurdle for moisture, preventing it from easily navigating from root to tip. That’s why you might have noticed the ends of your hair are dryer, while the roots can sometimes seem oily.
With less curvature, like straight hair, your scalp’s natural oils can travel effortlessly down the hair’s shaft to keep the lengths and tips hydrated and healthy.
If you have a light wave, you might not face the hydration issues someone with spring-tight curls will have and your hair needs will be different. The curvier your strands are, the more challenges you face. But there’s one thing that can help even the tightest spring-like curls – curl conditioner.

Conditioner for curly hair prone to frizz
Frizz – a girl with curls’ nemesis. Caused by a lack of moisture in strands, frizz is the result of hair grabbing moisture from the surrounding air and that’s why it’s worse when there’s high humidity. Luckily, we have a conditioner for curly hair prone to frizz in our Aussie range.
Our Calm the Frizz Collection works an Aussie miracle on dry, frizz-prone strands. So, if the frizz has you living in fear of the great outdoors, revamp your haircare routine with these A-mazing wonder-workers and live life like an Aussie adventurer – without a worry in the world.
Infused with Australian hemp seed extract, our Calm the Frizz Hair Mask and Cap, can help transform moisture-lacking strands while giving you a mini-staycation. Hemp seeds are rich in nutritional and beauty benefits with an abundance of amino acid Arginine, which is like an elixir for hair! The perfect curl conditioner to build a defence against frizz. So, relax and enjoy the fresh notes of the mask while you imagine walking through the endless green fields of Emerald in Australia’s sunshine state of Queensland – that’s where we source this Aussie superfood!
How to use:
1. Wash your hair with our Calm the Frizz Shampoo, massaging in the roots and rinsing thoroughly (Tip: If you have thick, coarse hair, tight curls or coils, the longer you can go between washes, so as not to dry out strands, the better it will be for your locks. Just apply your curl conditioner to the lengths to give hair a better moisture balance.)
2. Work Aussie Calm the Frizz Hair Mask and Cap through the lengths of towel dried hair and comb through to the tips using your fingers
3. Pop the shower cap on (do a little dance, sing a little song) – 10 minutes should do the trick, then remove that cap and rinse!
If your hair’s really thirsty, you can leave the cap on overnight and rinse in the morning.
If you want to alternate with another treatment (on weekdays versus weekends for example!), you can use the Calm the Frizz 3 Minute Miracle Deep Treatment. An in-shower sensorial experience that’ll leave you and your hair feeling calm and fresh. And breathe
Add a little Calm the Frizz Lightweight Oil to the lengths and tips of strands before styling and you can say goodbye to frizz!
Tip: A little oil goes a long way, so start with a coin size amount on the palm of your hand - you can always add more.
