AUSTIN, Texas, June 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — NaturallyCurly, the very first digital platform catering to all things texture, is excited to announce the winners of their highly-anticipated 2017 Editors’ Choice Awards.

Throughout the year, NaturallyCurly editors – ranging in hair types 2A to 4C – test hundreds of up-and-coming and tried-and-true products, tools and necessities designed for curly, coily and wavy hair. The editorial team deliberated countless hours to assign awards by hair type across 33 unique categories ranging from favorite gel, deep conditioner, to oil and much more!

«The Texture category is the most exciting, fastest growing segment of the haircare industry,» said Michelle Breyer, Co-Founder of NaturallyCurly. «Each year, hundreds of new products are launched. That’s why NaturallyCurly’s Editors’ Choice Awards are so important to curly, coily and wavy women. The NaturallyCurly editors are diligent about testing them, by specific product and texture type – to help take the guesswork out of finding the best products. With the Editors’ Choice awards, we have helped millions of women find their ‘Holy Grail’ products.»

The NaturallyCurly editors’ selection process uses the following criteria:

  • Product Efficacy: Does the product work for a specific hair type?
  • Miracle Claims: Does the product deliver false hope or stay true to its claims?
  • Additional Value: Does the product exceed hair goal expectations by providing unlisted benefits?
  • Innovation: Does the product contain innovative ingredients? Is the product new to the curly community?
  • Industry expertise: Are ingredients suggested for use by hair care experts?

This thorough process aides consumers through their decision journey. Consumers can trust that the items in the NaturallyCurly editors’ maintenance and styling collections are the best in the industry.

Furthermore, this year’s 2017 Editors’ Choice Awards feature products by category and hair type, quotes from editors as to why products were chosen, and options for single-click shopping.
