Whether your hair type is 3A or 4B or anywhere in between, there are a whole host of all natural curly hair products that have been made specifically for you. There are just so many great products and it can be difficult to wade though all of the many choices you have.
If it is important to you that products you use in your hair are ecologically friendly and organic as well as all natural, this will narrow your choices down a bit.
Some ingredients that you should avoid are mineral oil, petroleum oil, paraffin liquid, parabens, diethanolamine, triethanolamine, propylene glycol diazolidinyl and other impossible to pronounce ingredients.
It’s easy to become a “product junkie,” someone who enjoys trying new products out all the time. While there is nothing wrong with this, it’s also really helpful to know which products will definitely work in your curly or kinky hair and to have those go-tos handy.
Some of the more popular natural brands are Aubrey Organics, Carol’s Daughter and Burt’s Bees. Miss Jessie’s, Kinky-Curly and Curlmart also have lots of all natural curly hair products that are high quality. You will probably want to choose a shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer and a styling product. Once you know what works best, feel free to experiment with other products, knowing that you can always return to what you know.
You can also make some of your own products, using ingredients such as shea butter, argan oil, mayonnaise and other natural oils, butters and foods, depending on exactly what you’re trying to achieve. Making your own natural hair care products can be rewarding and less expensive than buying ready made products, sometimes.
