So many of us are used to buying so many items and products to use on our hair, when it really only requires a few basic essentials. We want a good shampoo, and a clarifying shampoo, a cream conditioner, a leave in conditioner, deep conditioning treatments, hot oil treatments, hair product recipes, curl definition foams, creams and gels, gel to hold the hair in place, spray to hold a style, styling lotion, setting lotion, products to temporarily straighten the hair and the list goes on….I am most often asked “What can I buy to make my hair…”?
You can buy a lot of products but if you don’t know the basics in how to care for your hair, the products may not be effective.
Truth is, there’s nothing wrong with the bare essentials:
- A good pH balanced shampoo
- leave in conditioner
- moisturizer cream or lotion
- essential oil
- a natural bristle brush
- wide toothed comb
Keeping the hair clean, detangled and moist are the basics to great natural hair care. So Let’s Keep It Simple, Sisters!
