14 Of The Best Afro Hair Products Your Natural Hair Will Fall In Love With
The natural hair movement in the UK has come a long way, especially in regards to afro hair products. Way back before the movement, we could only find few afro hair products on the scene, and if any were found, they were at best, filled with toxic ingredients. With limited choices available, black women went ahead with these products at the detriment of their hair health. However, since then, we have seen a rapid growth of organic and ethical afro hair products for different needs, hair types and uses. Whether you are a newbie natural or a seasoned one, we have compiled a list of some of the best natural afro hair products on the market you should add to your stash. Before or after booking your afro hairdresser with Afrocks, you can give these a go!
Got frizzy hair and damaged ends? Sealing your hair with this healing oil from Mahogany naturals is bound to make your tresses feel more alive. Plus, baobab and rosehip are big sources of micronutrients that help rejuvenate the hair.
It’s less waste and more benefits with Nurture’s shampoo bar. It’s 100% organic, containing no toxic ingredients. It cleanses and moisturizes your rather than strip it of its natural oils as conventional shampoos do.
This is another jack-of-all-trades. If you are a strict follower of the LOC or LCO method in moisturizing your hair, Marula oil leave-in triples as all three components in one pack. It also helps in repairing dry, damaged ends, and works as a styling cream.
Blueberry contains anti-oxidants that rejuvenate the hair and skin. The seed oil is no different as it helps repair damaged hair and restores shine. It’s suitable for hair, skin, and nails.
Do your curls house a million fairy knots that always leave your tresses in a tangled mess? Then you definitely need a detangling leave-in-conditioner to keep your curls from knotting. It can also be used to refresh your day 2 twist outs.
This is another multipurpose natural hair moisturizer you should consider adding to your counter or cabinet of afro hair products. From defining your twist outs to taming frizz and even protecting your mane from UV rays, this oil-infused cream does it all. And it’s made with no parabens, sulphates, phthalates, silicones, paraffin, mineral oil and other toxic ingredients. Totally safe.
This nutrient-rich butter works as a leave-in conditioner and a detangler. The major ingredients, Tucuma and Aloe vera, have restorative and healing properties that are great for natural hair. This butter also works on all hair types and contains no toxic ingredients.
Every naturalista needs a shampoo that also moisturises their hair. We no longer have to struggle with dry, tangled hair after using a shampoo. A no-sulphate shampoo like Afrocenchix Swish’s is one of those that leave your hair super soft and shiny after being cleansed.
The sweet-smelling butter every naturalista should have. Let’s face it, we need our hair to smell good at all times. And this comes in a complete package because not only does it smell good, it’s also packed with beneficial ingredients that help improve both your hair and scalp health.
It’s no longer news that the trick to mastering protective styles (and in turn grow your hair), is to not neglect it while you have your protective styles on. With a moisturizing spray like Bourn Beautiful’s, it becomes efficient to keep your protective styles in check.
Buying multipurpose natural hair products will save you a lot of coins and time. Eyoko’s all-natural hair butter is one of such products. It works as a scalp nourisher, hair moisturizer, the ‘Cream’ in the L.O.C method and hot oil treatments.
If you are the kind of naturalista who likes her edges slick and ‘laid,’ edge controls like Ms hair’s will always come in handy. It has a strong hold which keeps your edges slick and non-frizzy all day.
The stars of this Manketti oil shampoo are the Manketti Nut and Ximenia oils which condition and nourish natural hair. If your hair has been damaged by wear and tear, you’d need a rejuvenating shampoo like this.
This Hair Repair Oil quickly absorbs into the hair and scalp to increase moisture retention and improves elasticity releasing knots, tangles and shed hairs. A must-have! Plus founder Klerissa McDonald can be booked on Afrocks! Visit her profile now if you need your hair done in the Wembley area!
