Natural haircare product must-haves for your household – kids, men and women. We’ve got you covered.
Step-by-step, here are the products you need to care for your natural hair as you grow that awesome afro.
Argan, jojoba, amla, sesame oil and the like… It’s all good and well that these natural ingredients are contained in our hair products, and they sound pretty impressive, too, but what role do they actually play in our haircare routine?
Antioxidant-rich amla oil fights free radicals to guard your hair against damage while conditioning from root to tip. It’s particularly good for natural hair as it strengthens hair strands that are prone to breakage. This, in turn, means a healthier head of hair. Enjoy silkier, softer hair with Dark and Lovely’s Amla Legend Shampoo for a three-in-one cleanser that’s sure to leave your locks looking and feeling brilliant.
Argan (or Moroccan) oil is punted as an all-singing, all-dancing wonder ingredient that now regularly shows up in haircare products. Rich in nutrients such as vitamin E and fatty acids, argan leaves hair feeling soft, silky and shiny. Redken’s All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner contain argan oil and are perfect for dry or brittle hair.
We commonly see avocado oil being used in afro hair products, including hot oil treatments and conditioners, thanks to its dandruff- and dry scalp-fighting ability. Avocado oil helps to prevent itchy flakes and acts as a detangler while nourishing hair at the same time. Want to harness the power of avocado? Try the Scalp Care Deep Conditioner from Mizani to treat scalp irritation.
If you’re looking for products that make your hair shine, then you may want to consider one that introduces coconut oil to your routine. Coconut adds a lustre to your locks, promotes hair health, works to safeguard against breakage and has a cleansing effect. Coconut oil can be found in Mizani’s True Textures range.
It’s not uncommon for shampoos and conditioners alike to contain their fair share of jojoba oil. Why? Firstly, it works to remove excess sebum from the scalp. Additionally, it encourages hair health while moisturising and helps protect hair from dryness and breakage. You can find jojoba oil in Dark and Lovely’s Braids ‘n Weaves range.
Shea butter is one of the best natural hair ingredients out there for those who struggle with a difficult-to-manage mane. Dark and Lovely’s Moisture Plus Ultra-Light Oil Moisturiser Spray contains shea butter for added hydration and shine.
When your shampoo ingredients contain any of these oils, you’re headed in the right direction for a healthier head of hair. Still have questions?
