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.

Afrocks’ Afro Hair Stylists Guide To Personal Health, Safety And Self-Care
We have spoken before about the silent sacrifices many afro stylists make in order to provide an exceptional service to clients. We bend, turn, twist and place our bodies in awkward positions as well as the standing for long periods of time. We should also acknowledge the emotional toil of styling (also discussed before). The difference between a stylist and someone who ‘does hair’ is the attention to detail, which requires concentration, all the while ensuring the client is comfortable/entertained - and it is only emotionally taxing because we care so much about meeting the client’s expectations. As there is no professional certification for afro styling, see this as an afro stylists guide to personal health and safety. Even if you are not a stylist, please continue to read - these tips apply to all in some way or other.
