Natural Hair Must Haves

February makes it a year since I took the plunge and decided to do the BIG CHOP. That was such a nerve wrecking decision that I made but I'm glad I did it. When going natural everyone and their "grammy" (grandmother) has an opinion about going natural but no one ever says how to actually style your hair or which products to use, when it's all said and done you're left all alone. With trial and error, I found my holy grail products that hasn't fail me yet. My go-to style is a wash 'n' go. I choose this style mostly because, 1. I'm a master at it, 2. It's very convenient and 3. It's always turns out good. As my hair gets longer I will be experimenting with other styles but for now, the wash 'n' go is my best friend. So here is a list of my 'Natural Hair Must Haves'.

1. Wide-Teeth Comb
This is a must to have! I know a lot of naturals to not use combs to detangle but for me, once my hair is wet and it is sectioned  it's easier for me. The wide-teeth comb is also good because it does put stress on the hair when combing compared to a small-teeth comb.

2. Aunt Jackie's 'In Control' 
When I found this, I think I did a holy praise dance in the store. Aunt Jackie's 'In Control' deep conditioner is probably one of the best, if not the best. It controls frizz, defines curls and let's not talk about how moisturizing it is. The smell alone is intoxicating. It always has my hair smelling berry-licious. This will always and forever be my favorite deep conditioner.

3. One and Only Argan Oil
I remember when I started to use this I began to break out on my forehead but after a while I stuck with it and it stopped. I initially use this argan oil on my weave but I noticed when I used it on my natural hair, my hair would not frizz, at all. No frizz? Yes, and that's why it's a must have for me. It's also very moisturizing and it doesn't need to be applied everyday.

4. White Rain Hydrating Extra Hold Gel
Sometimes mistakes lead to the best things. When I got this gel, it was purchased by accident; so I decided to try it and viola, AMAZING! Everyone has that one gel that they swear by and bible this gel is bomb! Not only does it has great hold but it doesn't leave my hair crunchy and flaky. It's definitely the best and it's only $2!

5. Satin Cap
Is an intro really need? We all know who the real MVP is. 

6. InstaNatural Pure Argan Oil
When I'm not using my One and Only, I'm using my InstaNatural Argan Oil. This oil is different from the other one. It has a different consistency and smell. I use this more on my scalp for hot oil treatments and pre-poo's. It's really great at keep my hair moisturized.

7. InstaNatural Argan Oil Hair Mask
Last but definitely not least. This is a new player in the game. This deep conditioner is giving Aunt Jackie's a run for her money. They are doing the same thing but I get different results from them. I love this deep conditioner because I use less of it to cover my hair which is a major plus when your spending over $10 on a product and it's going to last more than three washes.

What are your hair must haves? 


  1. I always need Shea Moisture products in my hair routine. I need to tryout that gel because for $2 it sounds good.

  2. The deep conditioners sound good. I love Aunt Jackies Knot on My Watch...it's life!
