So You Want To Be Natural Pt. 4 – Product & Hair Typing

Your tresses will be protected at night now, so let’s get to the products right?. Before that you have to decide if you will purchase products, make your products, or a combination of the two. After doing a lot of researching and learning what products really where i decided to make most of my products like my DC and my moisturizing spritz. It is also at this stage that some nature’s determine their hair type. For some it determines what type of products they will use. Several manufacturers separate products by hair textures and types while other say their products are for any natural. I know my hair type, I only use two products that were directed towards my hair type: my Elasta QP and my Naturalista shampoos are for dry hair. The rest of my products are not specific or I make them myself.

Disclaimer: Everything listed here is basic and is meant to be a starting point. The links I’ve including will take you to some of the products I use for the various steps of maintaining my natural hair. I am no expert on hair care, I do not have my cosmetology license, nor am I a chemist, biologist, or scientist. I am a natural women who’s been researching natural hair care since 2012. I am however an expert in my own hair story and that’s what being natural is all about…developing a relationship with the hairs on your own head. I share what has worked for me in hopes that it may work for you as well.
