This article is for ladies who love their natural hair unconditionally and who want to maximise their look so that they feel gorgeous each and every day. Here are our top picks in terms of the most essential necessities for a natural ‘do.


A wide-tooth comb


Passed down for generations, most of us already know that brushing natural curls is a big no-no, but a curly mane has a mind of its own! Luckily, a wide-tooth comb can help to detangle your locks without causing friction or generating frizz.


The right shampoo and conditioner


Steer clear of parabens and sulphates – they’re not doing your hair any favours. The gentle Mizani True Textures Moisture Replenish Shampoo is both sulphate- and paraben-free, while the deep-conditioning Mizani Moisturfuse Moisturizing Conditioner is great for replenishing those natural oils. Another favourite amongst our haircare experts is the purifying L’Oréal Pure Resource Shampoo with Citramine and Vitamin E.


Leave-in treatment


Natural hair has a tendency to become very dry, especially during the colder months of the year. A quality leave-in treatment, like the fortifying Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Anti-Breakage Leave-In Treatment, should help to combat this.

Here are our top picks in terms of the most essential necessities for a natural do.

Rocky Bukasa



A diffuser will do more than just dry your hair faster, it will give your locks an instant volume boost too.


Edge groomer


This tool, along with a dab of edge control gel, has been designed to keep those flyaways and baby hairs under control for a tidier aesthetic.


Silk scarf


By wrapping a silk scarf around your head when you sleep, you will protect your curls from friction. You’ll also keep them looking amazing for longer in between washes.

Adding these essentials to your hair care arsenal will ensure that you are armed with everything you need to feel like a goddess day in and day out. It’s time to go forth and rock those curls with confidence – and the best grooming tools!
