Calling all new naturals and/or transitioners! I have complied a list of your must-haves that you should have in your arsenal – every naturals beginner’s tools and products!
Wide Tooth Comb/Tangle Teezer – Whether you are transitioning or completely natural, if you aren’t using your fingers for finger detangling, you MUST use a tool that will safely detangle your curly strands.
Hair Drain Stopper – Unless you want to invest $$$ in a plumber, I would highly recommend getting a drain stopper to prevent shed hairs from clogging up the shower drain.
Clips/Bobbi Pins – To secure your hair while styling/detangling, you will need clips. Likewise, Bobbi pins will become your best friend as they help greatly in the styling process. I find random pins in my hair all the time and I always keep a handful on deck.
Other Products: I don’t really have product suggestions because everyone’s hair behaves differently. I know what I use – Garnier Fructis Shampoo/Conditioner (for color treated hair), Giovanni Direct Leave-In and for my DC, I used Giovanni DC or make my own concoction. In whatever you may choose, pick products that reflect the following:
- Sulfate-Free Shampoo
- Deep Conditioner
- Conditioner (my go to for an everyday use – Suave Naturals)
- Leave-In Conditioner
