If you’re rocking a natural ‘do, you’re probably obsessed with keeping it in good condition, rain or shine and wash after wash. These are our top tips for no-problem natural hair.


Be discerning when choosing a shampoo


The products that you use on your hair are key to maintaining its best condition. When choosing a shampoo, we recommend steering clear of sulphates. This additive is responsible for the foaminess of most shampoos, but it definitely doesn’t do your mane any favours. In fact, sulphates are known to strip hair of its natural oils, which can lead to frizziness and breakage – so not a good look! The cleansing Mizani True Textures Moisture Replenish Shampoo is a good choice to retain natural curls and touchable texture. Pair it with the detangling Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Anti-Shrinkage Conditioner with mango oil for effortlessly manageable locks

Treat it to a treatment


A luxurious, nourishing treatment can go a long way towards ensuring improved bounce and texture for natural hair. The lightweight, leave-in Mizani 25 Miracle Milk treatment is a top choice.


Soothe your scalp


A healthy scalp is the secret to healthy hair. If your scalp is dry and tight, it usually means that your tresses are too! Remedy this by using a smoothing product like the anti-itch Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Scalp Smoother with peppermint oil.


When you go out of your way to love your hair, it’ll love you back. There’ll be nothing stopping you from flaunting that gorgeous natural look and turning heads everywhere you go!
