5 Alternative Products To Try In The New Year


Inasmuch as we love our ready-made products, there are times when we need to get out of the box and experiment with other things. Fortunately for us, there are products that are relatively safe for the general health of our hair so it’s important to implement them into our regimen every now and then.

1. Henna.
You’re seriously slacking if you haven’t used henna for your hair. Henna is everything and then some. It’s particularly great for strengthening your strands and improving the general condition of the hair plus you could always add some hibiscus for added color effects.

2. Ghee
It’s a super moisturizing and detangling product of cow milk that’s perfect for natural hair especially for moisture and curl definition. It can be purchased from Indian and grocery stores.

3. Herbal rinses.
There are a myriad of herbal/tea rinses that are of optimum benefits to natural hair. For example, black/green tea which is awesome for shedding, hibiscus rinse, neem rinse, lemongrass rinse, moringa rinse e.t.c. There’s this extra oomph…. when they are used at the end of wash days.

4. Clays.
This is something I can’t wait to try this year. It encompasses the entire wash day procedure into one.

5. Ayurvedic powders These powders are the currently one of the best things to happen to natural hair. Please don’t miss out on all their goodness.
