Are you looking for the best products to use on your natural hair? Natural hair takes a lot of time, patience, and know-how.
If you’re like many naturals, you do a ton of experimenting.
Problem is, experimenting with lots of different products can be costly on the wallet. Aaannd, it’ll also cost you time and effort (and tears?!).
If you’ve got wayyy too many products in your bathroom cabinet and you’re still not satisfied with your hair results, there are a few things you’ll wanna have in place BEFORE you do any more shopping for products.
Want to know the best products to use for natural hair? Read on!
Choose Water-Based Products ONLY
You see it everywhere: DIY shea butter mask … hot oil treatment … overnight castor oil, and the list goes on.
Naturals tend to obsess over oils and butters, but does any of it actually moisturize hair?
Short answer: No!
In fact, you might be blocking moisture by piling oils on your hair. Water is the only thing that truly hydrates hair.
Every product you put on your hair should always contain water as the first or second ingredient.
If you’re making a DIY mixture, make sure it contains water or aloe vera.
Stick with the Same Brands for Your Natural Hair Routine
If you tend to use a little bit of this and that when you wash your hair, stop it.
Brands typically create product lines that work together to give the intended result.
So, if you’re mixing it up, you might just end up with no result.
Our product line, Mango Moringa Moisture Max system has everything needed to give your hair maximum moisture so you can avoid dryness and breakage.
I can’t speak for all manufacturers out there, but our Moisture Max line works as a complete system. Veer away from the system and you might end up with half the result.
So, when choosing products, select all the products in a line so you can get the best results for your curls.
Avoid Sulfates and Drying Ingredients
Sulfates and some alcohols are great at cleansing, but they also completely strip the hair of natural oils.
This squeaky-clean process means you’re left with overly dry curls and a tangled mess. When curly and coily hair gets too dry, it breaks.
Now, I’m not talking about cetyl, cetearyl, and steryl alcohols. These three fatty alcohols are amazing for natural hair because they help to infuse water into the shaft.
But if your products contain sulfates (mostly found in shampoos) or ethanol or isopropyl alcohol … you’re asking for trouble.
Stop Relying on Your Cooking Skills to Do Your Hair
Look, I know natural hair can be a bit challenging at times, but …
A lot of the challenge comes from being a little too ambitious with the do-it-yourself recipes. DIY can really wear you out!
Look, there’s nothing wrong with having some fun in the kitchen. But if making a DIY recipe becomes a chore, it might leave you exhausted and discouraged.
You might be better off without all the DIY natural hair recipes and projects.
Manufacturers (like us!) spend years in the lab, creating formulas that give major results to hair.
And nowadays, you can easily find brands that are low in toxins (like ours!).
So, do yourself a favor, and skip the weekly kitchen labor if you're not feeling it.
Look for store-bought products that work.
Once you find them, stick with them and make a routine.
I promise you … this will make your natural hair journey MUCH easier.
Longer hair, curl definition, and manageability ALL come from *moisture*.
Look for water-based products that give you lots of moisture, and then stick with them.
