What is in your natural hair product collection:Natural hair products basic

A trip down memory lane when I decided to go natural. I didn’t know what products to use, which products to purchase, or even how some products work. Hell, I still haven’t fully utilized all the natural hair products there is to be found.

I remember committing to using only a few products at a time until I am fully satisfied or dissatisfied with how it works on my hair. Natural hair journey is not a race we are more interested in growing healthy hair this side.

Natural hair product collection

Here is some insight into the natural hair products that are very important for your hair care.

Shampoo

The best shampoos are just gentle cleansers that leave your hair feeling detangled and soft, not the ones that will leave your hair squeaky clean. Use this product once or twice a week depending on your wash days are set up.

If you use a lot of oils and styling gels, you will need to consider using a clarifying shampoo every once in a while to occasionally remove this product build-up.

There is a bit of a difference between a clarifying shampoo and a moisturizing shampoo. A clarifying shampoo is a bit harsh and I would recommend that you use it only once a month.

Conditioner
A good hair care routine should include a great moisturizing conditioner. Moisturizing conditioners generally follow the moisturizing shampoo after every wash.

Notice how deep conditioning and conditioning are not the same? Condition after every wash and deep condition twice a month.

If your hair feels stretchy after using a moisturizing conditioner, be sure to add a protein-based conditioner to your next cleaning session.

Protein treatments and conditioners
These are used for rebuilding the hair strands, and work best when they are integrated into an already high-moisture hair care routine.

Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully when using these products. Some of the protein re-constructors have very specific directions for usage.

If your hair feels dry or you notice breakage, then you should hold off on using protein conditioning. Protein will only make your hair worse.

Leave-In Conditioner
Leave-in conditioners usually help with hair detangling especially after shampooing and conditioning and can be used as water-based moisturizers for daily use.

I love adding some leave-in conditioner to my spray bottle with water. It keeps my hair well moisturized.

Moisturizer
Contain aloe or water is their first ingredient and often contains emollients and humectants that draw moisture into the hair to soften it.

A definite staple in my hair regimen. I apply it as often as possible. Daily sometimes when my hair is too dry.

Oils
Used to seal in water-based moisturizer products and to help enhance the shine and pliability of hair.

You simply need to first apply a small amount of the oil on the ends of the hair and then work your way up the hair strand.

I noticed how some naturalists have now stopped using oils. I don’t know how they seal all the moisture into their hair.

My hair care regimen is non-existent without the above-mentioned products. I honestly can’t live without any of them.
