When it comes to shopping for our natural hair it becomes a means of trial and error. We buy products, we try them and later to find out that our hair does not like that specific product. It shows when our hairstyle did not turn out as expected, too much product build-up, white flakes etc. You name it!!!.
This is the after effect of watching a million and one Natural Hair YouTube Vloggers. We watch these videos and then are later being introduced to these natural hair products, hairstyles, natural hair care tips that might work for us. This in return results in lots and lots of impulsive purchases. Our house now becomes an at home salon or the looks of a hair section in the drugstore aisle.
Have you ever seen a moisturizer that smells so good you might end up eating the product? The ingredients stated in the name ‘olive oil and ‘mango butter’. I first used the Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Moisturizer during my transitioning stage, it was the perfect product for sealing moisture into my dry, brittle, coarse hair. This product was recommended by a YouTube vlogger and yes I definitely had to try it.

Trying to keep your hair healthy and shiny always seems like a never-ending struggle. This is especially true during cold weather when your hair is exposed to environmental influences like wind, snow and cold air, which are highly damaging to your follicles. Therefore, nourishing your hair with hydrating hair masks is the best treatment. What’s more, thanks to fruit, honey, and various oils, you won’t have to spend a fortune on expensive masks, but you can whip up your own homemade hair mask.
If you are looking for a natural hair curl enhancer for your wash n’ go, perm rod sets, twist out then I would like to suggest the Cantu Coconut Curling Cream. It works on wet and dry hair as it defines, moisturizes and add sheen to natural hair. I like to use the Cantu Coconut Curling Cream for my wash n’ go. It instantly defines my natural curls.

Often times we come across product labels but they are not made easy to read and understand. We might not even trust the claims that brands/manufacturers place on these products. For all natural products there are no regulatory guidelines for what makes a product “natural”. If a product is made from organic ingredients then more than likely it contains a minimum of 70% certified-organic ingredients. To avoid any chemical harm one has to understand the different uses of ingredients listed and/or used to create the product. Below is a list of bad hair product ingredients that you should avoid:
If you are a Naturalista or you just began the transitioning stage then you should know one problem that we normally come across is finding the right product for our hair type and buying a bunch of products that do no good for our hair types. Instead, we get tons of flakes, build-ups, not much of the desired style and the list goes on. My advice based on experience is to stick to a product that works for your hair type and try not to splurge on a product that will not work for you just because you have seen a YouTuber use it or someone on Instagram.
