17 Jan Products I use on my Natural Hair + Care Tips for Natural Hair
On this post, I’ll be sharing the products I use on my natural hair and a few hair care tips for natural hair, or just healthy hair practices in general! There’s a lot of these kinds of articles on the internet but i’ve been asked this so many times that I decided to do a post on what exactly I use!
I’ve experimented with a lot of hair products! I have a drawer full of them 😭 from back when I used to think that if you use a lot of products your hair will grow lol.
Now I keep it simple & I’ve kinda figured out what works for me. This may not work for everyone else, but they are good products! Please note that I’m not a specialist! However, If you need consulting, I can recommend one for you.
Shea Moisture Moisture Retention shampoo
Tresemmé Radiant Volume Shampoo
I personally do not put too much thought to what shampoo I use. But I’ve noticed that these ones are quite moisturizing and doesn’t dry out my hair.
Most times, I wash my hair once in two weeks as that’s the usual period I have my protective styles on.
Beautiful Textures (Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner)
Crime Of Nature (Argan Oil Intensive Conditioning Treatment)
Shea Moisture (Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner)
Deep conditioning is a life saver. Try deep conditioning under a steamer. If that’s not readily available to you, cover your hair in a cellophane bag and let it sit for a while.
Leave In Conditioner<
Shea Butter Leave In Conditoning Repair Cream)
Shea Moisture Shea butter Extra Moisture Detangler
African Pride (Shea Butter Miracle Leave In Conditioner)
This basically an everyday thing. I usually mix it in with water and an oil in my spray bottle and use it on my hair everyday or even twice a day.
Tea Tree Oil
I use this as a sealant (to keep the moisture in) after moisturizing my hair and also to massage my scalp every other day. It’s also a content of my spray bottle mix.
I particularly like this spray bottle because it comes out as a mist! And so it’s easier to use to saturate/moisturize your hair. I got mine from @olivetreehairclinic!
This is how it works:
This is actually the best detangling comb I’ve used! It was a bit pricey but definitely worth it! Still from @olivetreehairclinic !
Hair Care Tips
Finger detangle wet (dampen using a spray bottle) hair before using a comb. It reduces shedding.
-Keep your hair moisturized all the times. Especially in protective styles because we tend to forget about caring for our hair when it’s styled.
-Massage your scalp with oils regularly to increase blood flow to the scalp and aid growth.
-Avoid overly manipulating your hair. E.g excessive combing, braiding, etc
-Use a silk scarf to sleep to reduce friction and hence reduce breakage.
On a final note, choose good hair practices over products! Keep the use of products simple and actually care for your hair. Your hair is growing, you just need to retain the length.
Love & Light!
