Since I am always looking for ways to improve my health, I do not limit that to just my food intake, I also try to implement this principle with what I apply to my body externally. After all your body is your temple right? That being said I try to use products on my skin and hair that have mostly natural ingredients. In the future I will create a blog post with what natural skin products I use.
Until then checkout the 5 natural hair products I cannot live without:
Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave In
This leave in conditioner is not 100% natural but the ingredient list is not too long and it does not have a ton of harmful chemicals like parabens or bht. I apply this leave in conditioner after washing my hair. The results are soft and moisturized tresses which are easy to manage.
Whether it is regular castor oil found at a local store, Haitian black castor oil, or Jamaican black castor oil this stuff can work wonders to thicken and strengthen your hair. I use castor oil as a pre-poo/ pre-shampoo. I am also currently doing a castor oil challenge which involves me applying it to my hair every 2-3 days (because this stuff can make your hair greasy) for 3 months to examine my results.
Whipped Shea Butter
I make my own whipped shea butter by adding a variety of oils to 100% unrefined shea butter. I use jojoba oil, vitamin e oil, grapeseed oil, and peppermint oil in my blend. I apply this mixture to my hair every couple of days for moisturized tresses.
I love using rhassoul clay to gently cleanse my hair without leaving it feeling stripped of its moisture in between shampooing my hair. I add aloe vera juice, jojoba oil, and a few essential oils to this clay to create a mud wash. Fun fact: Rhassoul is mined in North Africa and has been used for centuries to clean both body and hair. It literally means “to become washed.” (https://www.sheabuttercottage.com/rhassoul-clay.html)
Last but not least! This is the best moisturizer and the least expensive. Just like plants need water to grow so does your hair. I spritz my hair as needed with this stuff to bring back the moisture typically when I am styling my hair. (I use tap water however I do have a filter installed to my shower head.)
