As a person with natural hair, that’s coarse, tightly coiled and misunderstood, I have had to do a lot to research to find what works for my hair and what doesn’t. A lot of people make the mistake of using and following exactly what others are doing to care for their hair. Get to know what type of hair you have, Example: 4C, coarse and tightly coiled. Know the porosity of your hair (high, medium, low. I have low porosity hair, which means my hair doesn’t absorb product properly. I use a steamer to help with product penetration. I cleanse my hair often to avoid product build up and also use natural oils ( I will do another blog post of the hair oils/products). Avoiding heavy products and silicones is very important.
Since this post is about shampoos and conditioners, I use the Tea Tree Tangle shampoo and conditioner from Trader Joe’s. I love the tingly sensation it gives me and it’s very cheap. For those that don’t have access to Trader Joe’s, Amazon has it, but it’s more expensive. My other go to shampoo and conditioner is from Luseta. So far I like the Jamaican black castor oil.
With love, from a 4C hair lady 🙂
