For me, the hardest thing about transitioning to natural hair was finding hair products that worked well for my hair. At the beginning of my hair journey I was a HUGE product junkie. I would watch hundreds of YouTube videos about natural hair products and feel the need to purchase every item mentioned. After years of trying different products and combinations, I finally found my holy grail hair and styling products. Sometimes will I try to experiment with different products and switch up my routine, but I always find myself coming back to these products. They work wonders on my 3c hair.
1. Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner
I fell in love with this conditioner the first time I used it. It is moisturizing, it smells good, it causes this really cool tingling sensation, and it is under $5. Some of the ingredients include purified water, tea tree, peppermint oil, and eucalyptus oil. I love it's light texture, which makes it perfect to use as a leave-in conditioner.
2. Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk
This product has never failed me. It makes my curls soft, bouncy and defined. It is an extremely moisturizing and affordable (under $10) styling cream. I love that this product is sulfate-free, paraben-free, mineral-oil-free. It also contains great ingredients including deionized water, shea butter, and coconut oil.
3. Tangle Teezer
Brushing my hair has never been easier. This little pink brush has impressed me time and time again when it comes to detangling my hair. I don't even use a comb anymore. I use this to brush my wet hair in the shower, and it removes every tangle and knot in sight.
4. Hair Pick
I feel like my hair isn't complete until I pick it out. When it comes to hair, I think bigger is better. This pick does the job and leaves my hair big and voluminous.
