Share This Post

When it comes to natural hair, there are a few natural hair products that every natural needs to have in their product stash Whether you’re a new natural, or a natural hair veteran, here’s the scoop on products you didn’t know you needed…until now!

Clarifying Shampoo // Ever noticed that your hair is drier than usual? Or your products just aren’t working the way that they used to? You may need a clarifying shampoo to remove dirt and product build up from the hair

Microfiber Towel // A microfiber towel is a MUST for natural hair! Using a regular bath towel to dry your hair after a wash actually disrupts the cuticle layer of the hair, separating the natural clumps your curls make and causing frizzOpt for silk or satin scarves or pillowcases to ensure that moisture stays locked into your hair. Opt for a microfiber towel to absorb excess moisture

Protein Treatment // You should be incorporating a protein treatment into your natural hair regimen at least once a month Hair is made up of mostly protein Since you naturally lose a small percentage of protein when you wash your hair, it’s important to replenish to add strength back to the hair Protein treatments work by filling in the gaps that are present on your hair strand, forming a bond A lack of protein can lead to breakage, so make sure to keep up with those monthly protein treatments

Moisturizing Deep Conditioner // Just as hair needs protein, hair needs moisture as well Moisture is key when it comes to natural hair! Moisturizing deep conditioners help to restore moisture and maintain the hair’s elasticity

Chelating Shampoo // Unfortunately, some of us live in hard water areas A chelating shampoo helps to remove mineral deposits found in tap water that can be drying to our natural hair These mineral deposits actually coat the hair, preventing moisture from getting into the hair and leaving the hair feeling dry Chelating shampoos are very much like clarifying shampoos, removing dirt and build-up The only difference here is that they also remove mineral deposits from the hair

Dry Shampoo // If you’re one of those naturals who straightens her hair often, then this one’s for you While a dry shampoo doesn’t necessarily cleanse the hair, it does absorb the excess oil on your scalp and hair that leaves your straight style looking flat and lifeless

Coconut Oil // Coconut oil is bae You may as well slather coconut oil over your entire life because you can use it for pretty much anything! You can use it as a pre-poo, hot oil treatment, or to seal in moisture

Edge Control // There’s just something about having laid edges! From classic buns to elegant updos, they add a touch of sleekness and sophistication to any style Edge control not only helps to lay down your edges, but they help smooth out the hair for styles like buns, ponytails, buns, etc… It also works well for braided or flat twist updos to keep the braid neat and tight

Satin Scarf/Pillow Case // Those cotton scarves are not going to cut it when it comes to protecting your natural hair at night Opt for silk or satin scarves or pillowcases to ensure that moisture stays locked into your hair Cotton scarves and pillowcases draw the moisture out of your hair, leaving you with dry hair and time wasted from all the work you did getting the moisture into the hair

Water // Water is essential and just may be the cure for some of your hair problems Your hair thrives off of water! That means hydrating your body from the inside, and moisturizing your hair daily (or whenever needed) using water or a water based leave-in conditioner or moisturizer
