Hair Care | 10 Must Have Hair Products For New Naturals!
Hello Natural hair lovers, one of the biggest challenges for most women transitioning from relaxed hair to natural hair is finding the right hair care products for their newly embraced coils.
This problem contributes to most new naturals quickly becoming product addicts who end up spending too much time and unnecessary money trying to find that “miracle” product. In the end, they are left with no results and a closet full of unused products.
- Shea Butter – Natural girls know they love some Shea Butter, and with good reason. This product is the perfect way to stop and mend breakage, repair split ends, and add manageability and shine to your coils. Not only can it be used on a daily basis as a leave-in conditioner, but it can be cocktailed with other hair. I recommend you get your shea butter from Vanity Oils, Olori,com,ng or Juli by Ada.
- Curly Pudding – If you haven’t used Curly Pudding to reduce curl shrinkage, you better ask somebody!! This miracle in a jar has the ability to transform the kinkiest curls into smooth stretched out spirals. It works best for naturals who love to rock bantu knots, two-strand twist, or coil-out hairstyles. Simply apply a palm full of Curly Pudding to damp hair, comb through large sections, style hair, and air dry. Get African Naturalistas Twist And Curl Pudding.
- Olive Oil – Made with 100% pure olive oil is a life saver for any natural chick who lives for a quick wash-and-go or teeny-weeny-afro. Apply a generous amount to damp hair and watch your curl pattern instantly pop before your eyes. However before you apply the gel directly to your hair, we recommend mixing it with a small amount of moisturizer, like CANTU Shea Butter to avoid that crunchy, hard feel that most gels have once dried.

- Smooth Curly-To-Straight Set – Every new natural will have that one moment when she wants to straighten her hair for old time sake.
- EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL – Preventing dry, split, and brittle ends will be one of the hardest challenges in your natural hair care regimen, but it can be an easy task if you frequently moisturize and then seal your ends with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. For those that don’t know, sealing your ends is applying an oil or hair butter to your strands after moisturizing with a water-based product to lock in moisture. To seal your ends, simply wet your hair with water, remove excess water, put an ample amount of olive oil in your hair, concentrating mainly on your ends since they are the oldest and most fragile part of your hair. And voila, you’re once step closer to a healthy natural journey. You can get this product on vanityoils.com
- Detangling Deep Conditioner – Natural hair craves moisture, moisture, and more moisture, which is why it’s very important to deep condition your strands once a week. We recommend nourishing your tresses with Detangling Deep Conditioner, known to restore curly and kinky hair by penetrating deep into the cuticle and reconstructing damaged strands.
- Water – The most critical advice we can give to all new naturals is to always keep a spray bottle containing water within arms reach when styling your mane to help moisturize, soften, and detangle curls as needed.Never, we repeat never try to comb through or manipulate your coils without misting your hair down with water first, doing so could lead to tragic hair damage and breakage.
- Shine Shampoo – Using a sulfate-free shampoo from time to time to cleanse and rid the scalp of product build-up is a must.
- Radiating Gloss – Once you’ve found the natural hairstyle of your choice, be sure to up-keep your curly. This new finishing gloss was specifically created for natural hair to control frizz, transform dry hair, and add an consistent shine while maintaining your styles.
- Leave-In Conditioner/Detangler -Is a must have for naturalista’s who love a good co-wash. What more can you ask for when a product guarantees to moisturize, smooth the cuticle, and remove knots, snarls and tangles from thick curly textured hair?
