What products are best for my curl type?

Hello curly people! We’re so excited to have launched our highly anticipated Verb Curl Collection and love seeing all the different and amazing #hairgoals and #curlgoals results. While the new Curl Collection is designed to be used by all wavy, curly, and coily hair types, we know that not all curls are created equal! 

We’ve gathered up the best Verb product combinations for each curl type to help you find the specific routine that works best for your hair type whether that’s type 2, 3, 4, fine, thick, oily or dry.

Curl type 2 hair

If you’re in the 2A - 2C curl type category, your hair type ranges from loose curls to loose waves, often loose S-shaped strands. Think beach waves that can range from wavy to very light curls. When you fall under this category you know that depending on the products you use combined with how often you wash your hair, it can look curly one day and wavy the next. The key is knowing what you’re looking for and then applying products to achieve it. If you’re looking for the wavy pattern, we suggest a combination of the Sea Collection, Ghost Collection and even the Hydrate Collection!



For fine type 2 hair: We recommend using mostly Ghost products. Thanks to the weightless design of these products, you’ll have clean and defined waves and curls without losing volume. Try this combo:

Ghost Shampoo + Sea Conditioner + Ghost Oil + Sea Spray 

For thick type 2 hair: We recommend using mostly Curl products. Thick, type 2 hair needs lots of hydration in order to give definition to your waves and curls. Try this combo:

Ghost Shampoo + Curl Conditioner + Curl Leave-In Conditioner + Curl Cream 

For oily type 2 hair: We recommend using mostly Sea products. Oily hair tends to require products that won’t build-up so easily and a shampoo that can wash away all the build-up and excess oil without completely stripping it. Try this combo:

Sea Shampoo + Ghost Conditioner + Sea Texture Cream + Ghost Dry Oil 

Bonus tip: Try Dry Shampoo powder to absorb the excess oil when you want to go longer without washing your hair!

For dry type 2 hair: We recommend using mostly Ghost and Hydrate products. If your waves and curls are looking a little lackluster, it might be because they’re not properly hydrated and it’s best to stay away from Sea products. Try this combo:

Hydrating Shampoo + Hydrating Conditioner + Ghost Oil + Curl Leave-In Conditioner + Curl Cream

Curl type 3 hair

This type of hair is easy to spot! These curls tend to look like bouncy and perfectly defined ringlets. These curls are very springy and move easily and are more compact versions of type 2 S-shaped waves. Type 3c hair is the most defined of this section, looking more like tight corkscrew ringlets that almost look like each curl was single-handedly curled. There’s no doubt that the Curl Collection is your best bet but remember to factor in other hair issues before using a full line!

For fine type 3 hair: We recommend combining Ghost and Curl products to make sure your fine curls can stay weightlessly defined and bouncy. While the Ghost products will help your curls avoid going flat, the Curl products will help define each curl. Try this:

Curl Shampoo + Ghost Conditioner + Curl Leave-In Conditioner + Curl Cream 

For thick type 3 hair: For thick hair we recommend the full Curl line. These products will cleanse, hydrate, defrizz and define your thick mane whether you want a voluminous look or a simple, defined look. Use these:

Curl Shampoo + Curl Conditioner + Curl Leave-In Conditioner + Curl Cream + Ghost Oil

For oily type 3 hair: Like for fine hair, we recommend you use Ghost and Curl products. By using these products you get the necessary benefits for your curls without having to worry about adding styling products that build up and make your hair feel oily. Check out this combination:

Ghost Shampoo + Curl Conditioner + Ghost Oil + Curl Cream

For dry type 3 hair: We recommend a combination of Hydrate and Curl products. To avoid your curls drying and all the frizz that comes with it, the Hydrate and Curl Collection will help turn your mane into hydrated, bouncy hair: Try this:

Curl Shampoo + Hydrating Mask + Curl Leave-In Conditioner + Curl Cream  


Curl type 4 hair

Let’s talk about curl type 4 hair! This hair type is often described as coily, textured or kinky. You’ll often see very tight S-shaped curls but mostly Z-shaped curls. They tend to have a lot of body and need maintenance to avoid tangles. While you’ll still see S-shaped curls with 4a hair, you’ll start to notice Z-shaped curls on 4b and 4c patterns that shrink into tight curls that look short but are actually an effect of shrinkage. 

The amazing part about Type 4 hair is that the Curl Collection is perfect for all of them! 4a through 4c can benefit from the hydrating and curl defining properties of this line! Whether you have fine, thick, oily, or dry type 4 hair you’ll love how our Curl Collection will make your hair look and feel. However, here are the products you should add to your routine depending on your specific hair needs: 

For fine type 4 hair: We recommend adding the Ghost Mask to your routine once a week. In order to keep your fine locks weightlessly bouncy, add the Ghost Mask to weightlessly condition.

For thick type 4 hair: We recommend using the Ghost Dry Oil on non-wash days. Keeping thick hair hydrated but at the same time avoiding too much product build-up can be a struggle. The Ghost Dry Oil is a gentle moringa oil-infused formula that instantly absorbs into the hair to eliminate tangles, weightlessly hydrate, defrizz and add a fresh scent.

For oily type 4 hair: We recommend using the Reset Clarifying Shampoo to deeply cleanse your scalp every 3-5 washes. By adding the Clarifying Shampoo to your routine, you’ll be able to reset your scalp by getting rid of all the product build-up and environmental damage that can make a huge difference on type 4 hair.

For dry type 4 hair: We recommend incorporating the Hydrating Mask to your wash routine. If your type 4 hair is dry, you’ll see and feel it, which is why adding a deep conditioner will immediately show results. The Hydrating Mask is a rich, restorative deep conditioning treatment that will help detangle your 4c coils easier and avoid pulling the hair and damaging it.
