Finding the right shampoo and conditioners for your curls/coils can be difficult, especially for new naturals. In this article, I will help you determine how to find the right shampoo/conditioner combo for your own hair needs and spill the tea on my ultimate favorite shampoo and conditioner combos so far.
What are you looking for your products to do for your hair?
When shopping for shampoos and conditioners, you should ask yourself, “What do I desire for these products to do for my strands?”
Are you looking for added moisture?
Knowing what your hair needs can help you determine which products to buy. Read the labels located on the front of the packaging. The label should tell you what the product is intended to do for your hair.
Another thing to consider is your hair type. Do you have looser curls, a mixture of loose and tight coils, or a head full of tight coils? There are plenty of natural hair products to choose from, but keep in mind what your hair needs BEFORE you purchase anything.
Lastly, I would encourage you to research before spending your money on a product. You need to know for yourself what your hair needs. Just because someone on YouTube says a product is “amazing” on their hair doesn’t mean it will work for you.
Which Shampoos and Conditioners Am I Currently Loving???
I’m not entirely picky about what I use when purchasing shampoos and conditioners. I’ve been natural my whole life. I have used a variety of shampoos and conditioners on my curls. Over the years, I’ve experimented with several different natural hair care brands to see what works best for my hair, and I’m happy to say that I’ve found my top three shampoo and conditioner combos (so far)!
Aussie Miracle Moist
The Aussie Miracle Moist shampoo and conditioner isn’t just moisturizing; it’s inexpensive! At Wal-Mart, I paid $10 for this set. This combo will forever be a favorite of mine.
I love how these products cleanse and condition my curls and leave them feeling soft and looking super defined.
Camille Rose’s Sweet Ginger Cleansing Rinse ($12) and Moroccan Pear Conditioning Custard ($12) is a combo that works well with all hair types (in my opinion). I use this set on my children’s hair (both kids have a tighter texture than mine) and my own. It leaves our hair feeling soft, manageable, and moisturized.
TGIN’s Moisture Rich Sulfate Free Shampoo ($13) and Honey Miracle Hair Mask ($15) are my new favorites. These products smell amazing, but they also leave my color-treated hair feeling super moisturized, and I’ve used it long enough to say that it’s a staple product.
My top three shampoo and conditioner combos do what I need them to do: keep my color-treated curls moisturized and defined.
So, there you have it! If you’re a natural or thinking about becoming natural, give these products a try! Keep these things in mind when you are shopping for a shampoo and conditioner:
- What does your hair need? Moisture? Damage control/repair? Color-safe?
- How much are you willing to spend?
- What’s your hair type?
