One time for the natural hair girls! Are you still struggling to take care of your mane, sis? We decided to make things a little easier for you on your natural hair journey. We believe healthy hair starts with a good hair care regimen and everything else will follow. You know like the length, definition, and everything else you're craving.
Today we have simplified things for you and you can thank us later. Let's start with what products you're going to need for your hair regimen. Would you believe it if I told you, you only need 4-5 products? Well, Sis, we hate to break it to you but that's all you need and the rest is optional if you desire to get fancy.
Your natural hair journey just got easier and if you're consistent with these 4-to-5 products we promise it's only up from hair for your mane. Sit back and watch your hair flourish.
The first thing we need to mention, it's important to pay attention to the ingredients in the products you buy. Next, it's important to buy products to care for your hair based on your hair needs. For example, if your hair is dry or damaged don't go and buy a product line that focuses on luster, sheen and volume. You look for a product on the market that was formulated to restore dry or damaged hair etc. and use it consistently. Before you say a product doesn't work for your hair, it is recommended that you try a product consistently 4 weeks before saying it's not working.
Okay, let's get down to the nitty-gritty. 4-to-5 products you need for a healthy hair regimen, drum roll, please.....
A moisturizing natural shampoo that uses naturally derived ingredients, and no harsh chemicals. It will not strip your hair of its natural oils and ultimately provide nourishment with its natural ingredients. You need a good shampoo to cleanse your scalp. Always remember healthy hair starts with a clean scalp!
Deep conditioners have many benefits such as moisture retention, improved elasticity, damage prevention, preventing split ends and breakage and increased shine and luster of the hair. This is an important step you do NOT want to miss. A deep conditioner is thicker in substance and contains ingredients to penetrate the hair shaft. The purpose of a deep conditioner is to TEMPORARILY repair and nourish the hair cuticles with higher viscosity. Because the deep conditioner is thicker it needs to be left on the hair longer to penetrate the hair shaft. When you use heat with your deep conditioners it allows for the conditioner to penetrate the hair easier. Deep conditioners are like a temporary fix. It’s something you should do regularly.
Provide extra moisture to the hair and helps the overall health of your hair. If you have dry hair or your hair struggles to retain moisture a good leave-in conditioner will do you good. Please note dry hair can eventually lead to damage, breakage, and frizz. When looking for a leave-in conditioner, you want a water-based leave-in. Water-based leave-in conditioners are formulated to keep your hair conditioned and moisturized. They often contain humectants and draw moisture to the hair which keeps the hair moisturized longer.
This is your moisturizer and also very important. It's important to know dry hair breaks so you have to ensure your hair is moisturized at all times. Can I also tell you a secret?
