Natural/chemical-free hair is extremely difficult to hydrate, and although there are quite a few products that cater to this hair type, many are expensive and not moisturizing enough. For example, natural hair care company Miss Jessie’s offers great products for both women and children, but one 13oz product can cost you $30-$40.
For girls on a budget, there are equally effective and low-cost finds at your local drugstore or beauty supply. Organic Root Stimulater’s new “Smooth-n-hold Pudding” moisturizes, adds shine and hold to hair (both natural and relaxed). And despite their uber cheesy commercials, the product really does provide the benefits it advertises. This product gives my hair the moisture it needs, without leaving it greasy or weighing it down. I use it as a daily moisturizer and for my twist outs. African Prides’ Olive Miracle Growth Oil also works wonders for all hair types. The oil helps to stop breakage and prevent dryness, and can also be used as a hot oil treatment. Both products contain olive oil which as gained popularity as a beauty product for it’s conditioning and follicle smoothing benefits.
I’m always looking for new, life-changing hair products! What are some products you love?
