Whether your hair is curly, wavy, or coily, working with it in its natural state isn’t always the easiest feat. When it comes to ethnic hair care, the key to success is knowing what products out there work for YOU. This may sound difficult, but no worries! We took the guesswork out of everything and put together the best companies and products that will have your hair looking healthy and flawless.
Hands down, SheaMoisture is regarded as the holy grail of products for naturals. Each bottle, jar, or spray boasts that their ingredients are devoid of sulfates, parabens, harsh chemicals, and anything else that can damage your tresses. Every product gives the backstory of a grandmother in Sierra Leone who passed down her organic secrets to the products we use today. Who doesn’t love using something with a grandma’s touch in it? Even better, each line of SheaMoisture hair products addresses a various issue that many naturals face, whether it be dry scalp, moisture retention, or even getting your hair to soften. Our favorites include the Curl Enhancing Smoothie (orange jar) and the Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque (Gold Jar). In no time you’ll see why there’s a frenzy when this company does “BOGO Free” deals.
If you’ve ever heard someone refer to their hair as having a “Deva” cut, this is what they’re talking about.
