It has been 4 years since I did my first big chop, making that transition from relaxed hair to all-natural/no chemicals. In that time, I have experimented A LOT, learned A TON, and finally have realized that my hair likes simplicity. The less I do, the healthier it is and the better it looks. That being said, I thought I'd share some of my simple staple products/accessories. My product junky days are ceasing - I've given a lot away and have been sticking with what I know works for me.
- Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave-In Conditioner (moisture)
- As I Am Twist Curling Cream (styler, moisturizer)
- Spray bottle with water or water/vegetable glycerin mix (moisture)
- Coconut Oil (sealant)
- Jamaican Black Castor Oil (sealant/assists with thickening & regrowing my edges)
-wide tooth comb (only used 1-2xs per week)
The shampoos and deep conditioners I use vary - but I try to stick with sulfate free. I like those from the Shea Moisture and Kinky Curly product lines.
