Natural hair ladies, Fall is here so let’s make sure we give our tresses the nourishment it deserves. These five essential products can help promote strong natural hair and encourage hair growth. When stimulating the scalp with sulfate free shampoos you can help remove the necessary build up that blocks your hair follicles. Deep conditioners put in moisture that keeps your hair shiny and non-damaging. When styling the hair the tools you use are very important. Make sure they do not damage your hair or manipulate your hair shafts. Lastly, when choosing your styling cream and gel it’s important to find a product that is light but holds your style. Below we featured our top five natural products!
Shampoo – When finding a shampoo it’s important to look for a sulfate free cleanser. You can also use an oil-based moisturizing shampoo to seal in water. This will keep your hair moisturized longer. When looking for moisturizing shampoos look for cleansers with natural oils like jojoba, avocado, grape seed, tea tree oil, olive oil, coconut oil and emu oil.
Deep Conditioner – When you have a deep conditioner make sure it’s alcohol, artificial color, mineral oil, petroleum oil, paraben and fragrance-free. It’s important to use deep conditioners to help restore moisture, maintain elasticity, strengthen hair and can be used as a means of damage prevention.
Detangling tool – A bristle brush should be used during the styling processor used to work product into your ends. Natural hair is very fragile so you have to be careful with manipulation. Using an oil to seal moisture and brushing with this tool can help work the product into your shaft.
Styling Cream/Curl Cream – Styling creams and curl creams are great ways to define your curls. Curl Defining products give you extra conditioning and light hold to define and control curls with stronger curl patterns.
Gel – When choosing gels to make sure they do not contain any harsh drying chemicals. Make sure the gel leaves your hair soft, shiny, and flexible. It should wash out easily, without residue.
