Finding the right shampoo and conditioners for your curls/coils can be quite a task, 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, the main question you should ask yourself is, “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 out there to choose from, but keep in mind what your hair needs BEFORE you purchase anything.
Lastly, I would encourage you to do research before spending your money on a product. Just because someone on YouTube says a product is “amazing” on their hair, doesn’t mean it’s going to work for you. You need to know for yourself what your hair needs.
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
This combo will forever be a favorite of mine. The Aussie Miracle Moist shampoo and conditioner isn’t just moisturizing, it’s inexpensive! At Wal-Mart, I paid $10 for this set.
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) as well as 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) is a new favorite of mine. I’ve used it long enough to say that it’s a staple product for me. Not only do these products smell amazing, they leave my color-treated hair feeling super moisturized and defined.
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?
