Black hair care, for natural hair growth, curly hair products for natural curls. Styling of african american textured hair for health and beauty. Natural black hair care is depended on the right styling products. Finding the type of styles that will fit best with you daily routine is possible when you learn your hair type and what works best for the type of hair you have.

If your hair is naturally curly one of the best things you can do for it is to keep it moisturized. Inorder to retain moisture the ingredients must contain elements that do not dry out your hair, some of the best ingredients for your hair styling products are as follows: Shea Butter, Coconut milk, jojoba oil, Rosemary, Cedarwood

What is the best natural hair products
The best products will vary from person to person, not everyone can use the same products and get the same results, hair type plays a big role in how your hair will take to a thick creamy conditioner versus a lightweight spray. If you hair is fine with a loose curl pattern the results you get from using a styling product will be different than someone who has a thick, tight coily hair. heavy creams may work best with certain hair types while others it just leaves the hair feeling heavy. Trial and error is the best advice I can give about picking the right hair care products for your natural hair.
Benefits of shea butter for skin and hair
Shea butter is what many who have decided to go natural and wear their hair in coils, twists, locs or bantu knots prefer to use to give them the soft manageable hair. Tightly coiled hair needs to get plenty of moisture which many styling products seem to strip away needed nurishment.

Shea butter is natural fat that comes from fruit, it comes in a solid substance and can be melted down and mixed with other oils. Shea butter is also good for the skin, and blemishes. Biggest benefits for your hair is its repairing and protecting from weather damage, hydrates scalp and prevents dryness.

Wide Tooth Comb for detangling

Natural coily and tightly curled hair looks strong but is very fragile and needs to be taken care of gently when styling, the best way to detangle curly hair is to use a wide tooth comb, seperating tightly coiled or kinky hair starting from the ends, slowly moving upward until the hair combs through easily.

Smoothing hair while preventing split ends, which is the number one reason for lack of hair growth in black hair is the unending breakage caused by styling agents, chemicals and harsh combing techniques. Protect your ends and use a wide tooth comb when styling black natural hair.

There are many brands available on the market, test comb by raking it on your hand to see if it is too sharp, you want a comb with smooth ends so that it will not tear and damage your scalp or your hair.

I personally am not a big fan of any type of comb at all.  I'd rather detangle using my fingers.  However if you must use a comb , I sincerely suggest following this tip.  We as Natural's work very hard to protect and keep our hair healthy.

Benefits of Leave-in Conditioner for natural hair

Most curly heads know that keeping moisture in the hair is vital for hair growth and healthy looking shine, some of the best conditioners are leave-in. Finding the right leave-in conditioner that is not too oily and does not weigh the hair down is what makes a natural hairstyle look its best. Some leave in conditioners can be sprayed on the hair while others have a more creamy texture that can be applied directly to the hair after a shampoo. If you air dry your hair or use a diffuser to dry your hair this type of conditioner can be left in until your next shampoo. So that you hair maintains its managablility.  I use cantu shea butter leave in conditioning repair cream.   I love this product as a leave in.  It's light , it doesn't weigh my hair down,  It has a pleasant scent,  It doesn't dry out my hair, it keeps my hair moisturized,  And the ingredients aren't that bad.  This leave in conditioner is a winner in my book, with 2 thumbs up( smiles).

As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah:

I LOVE leave in conditioner! I like the creamy and spray variety. I use the creamy kind just like some women may use a light moisturizer. My hair likes it a lot and my hair remains soft for a long time mashaAllah. And yes I do love the Cantu as a daily moisturizer! I had to start making my own through because I was going through too many of those small jars mashaAllah.
