With clients like Solange Knowles, Mary J. Blige, and Taraji P. Henson, it is clear why Paris-based hair stylist, Ciara Costenoble, is Black America's go-to girl when they are in the City of Lights! The Alexandria, Virginia native has over a decade of experience perfecting her craft, and took her talents to France in 2011 where she fell in love with Paris, married her French beau, and never looked back!

Since then, Costenoble has grown a loyal following thanks to her visionary styles and versatility, quickly appearing on every Black woman's list of trusted Parisian stylists for weddings, award shows, or concert performances — once having to cut, color, and style Solange's tresses in just 3 hours!

Always down to share tips specifically for textured hair, Costenoble was kind enough to let us in on some of her favorite products this season. Check them out below:

1. Babassu Oil & Mint Deep Conditioner – $14.99

"If your hair is (seemingly) getting lots of moisture, but still missing that extra bounce or flexibility, you may be in need of the Babassu Oil & Mint Deep Conditioner by Mielle Organics. This is basically a protein shake for your kinks and curls, and will help build your hairs' strength from the inside out, simultaneously shielding your strands from heat damage and extremely low temperatures." – Ciara Costenoble

2. The Kure Intense Repair Mask – $38

"Another fantastic hair mask that is rich, creamy, and will envelope each strand of hair in moisture: The Kure Intense Repair Mask by Amika. This masque is everything you need to keep your hair super hydrated, shiny, and soft. It also has an amazing list of products including sea buckthorn, iron, biotin, and vitamins B, C and E!" – Ciara Costenoble

3. Deeply Therapeutic Hair Scalp & Skin Elixir – $12.95


"I am constantly ranting about scalp care! Can you imagine washing your face, and NEVER moisturizing it? Then why would you do that to your scalp?! To truly give my client's scalps some TLC, I always turn to the Deeply Therapeutic Hair Scalp & Skin Elixir by SASHAPURE. After a good wash, massage this potent product into your scalp and you will definitely see a difference in dandruff, flaking, and dryness. I literally bought this entire line and enjoy every single product!" – Ciara Costenoble

4. Curlz Blueberry Bliss Control Paste – $12

"Even though I'm a full-time Parisian now, I must still rep for the culture of edges, and I was so happy to finally get the Curlz Blueberry Bliss Control Paste here in Paris! It's not a gel, it doesn't flake, and it will leave your hair soft, moisturized, and with a natural shine to counter this winter gloom." – Ciara Costenoble

5. Thirsty Girl's Coconut Milk Leave-In Conditioner – $28

"For the ultimate leave in conditioner (this is big coming from a stylist who didn't believe in them until this product) you have got to try Thirsty Girl's Coconut Milk Leave In Conditioner by IGK. It uses the same approach to hair as estheticians do with skin, infusing the strands with hyaluronic acid that will lock in moisture, and protect hair from free radicals like city pollution." – Ciara Costenoble
