5 Types of Natural Hair Products Everyone Should Stock Up On.

One of the most dreaded moments styling your hair is when: you reach in your cabinet and there is only a drop left of * your favorite natural hair product. It has happened to me time and time again. In fact, one day my husband told me (in an exasperated tone), “Why don’t you stop being cheap and buy two bottles instead of one?” He was referring, to my Curls Creme Brule, which I use as my daily leave-in. He was right. So this summer, I made it my priority to stock up on all of the natural hair products I need for daily styling.


Here are 5 “must – stock – up – on” Natural hair products you do not want to be caught without.


1. Shampoo (Cleanser)

You don’t necessarily need to buy multiples of the same shampoo, but instead, you should have different types of shampoo. At the very least, you should have a “light” shampoo and a more “clarifying” shampoo. The first option is for days you need to cleanse your hair but you don’t want to dry it out; the latter is for when you need to remove lots of product buildup.

In my cabinet, I have a cleansing conditioner for light cleansing, a “regular” shampoo for a traditional shampoo, and Bentonite clay for clarifying my hair.

You could use:

Jessicurl Hair Cleansing Cream

Alikay Naturals Caribbean Coconut Milk Shampoo

Burt’s Bees More Moisture Baobab Shampoo

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay

2. Conditioner

One day, while searching for shampoo, my hubby said, “Bae! Where is the shampoo? All I see is conditioner! Who needs this much conditioner?!” Clearly, I do. I keep my cabinet stocked!

At the very least, you should have a cheapie conditioner with lots of slip for detangling, and a deep conditioner that specifically states it is a “deep conditioner” or “hair masque”. For days that you don’t deep condition, you can also add a 3-5 minute conditioner to your natural hair care arsenal.

You could use:

Jessicurl Deep Conditioning Treatment

Alikay Naturals Avocado Cream Moisture Repairing Hair Mask

African’s Best Hair Mayonnaise

Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque

Click on them to buy on Amazon.


3. Daily Moisturizer

Whether you use a daily leave-in, a hair milk, or moisture mist (make your own with these 5 simple recipes), to moisturize your hair on a daily basis, you should invest in the super-size bottle or at least purchase two at a time of a daily moisturizer.

If you are like me, my daily moisturizer is the first product I run out of — and I am often scrambling to find an alternative product to use in its place. To avoid this scenario, stock up.

You could use:

Alikay Naturals Lemongrass Leave In Conditioner

Curls Creme Brule Whipped Curl Cream

Click on them to buy on Amazon.


4. Stylers

Whether your favorite styler is a twisting butter, gel, edge cream, or shea butter, make sure to keep it on hand. For me, stylers are the one thing — other than hair milk — that I run out of on a regular basis. I am THAT person who tries to twist her entire head with only a dollop of twisting butter left.

You could use:

Donna Marie Super Buttercreme

As I Am Twist Defining Cream

Jane Carter Nourish and Shine

NOW Foods Shea Butter

Qhemet Biologics Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee

Qhemet Biologics Moringa Tree Conditioning Ghee

Click on them to buy on Amazon.


5. Oils

To seal in the moisture and add some luster to your hair, every natural girl needs some type of oil in her cabinet. Preferred oils include olive oil, castor oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil (my personal favorite).

Oils are something you can run out on so keep some in your cabinet or use more than one type of oil so that you would have variety.

You could use:

NOW Foods Avocado Oil

Tropical Isle Castor Oil

NOW Foods Sweet Almond Oil

NOW Foods Organic Jojoba Oil

Click on them to buy on Amazon.

So there you have it… 5 natural hair products you should have stocked in your cabinet. If you ever run out of your favorite product, I highly recommend having a backup that you can easily pick up at a nearby drug store or shopping center.

For so long, I would only use Donna Super Butter creme for my twist outs, but I could only purchase it across town. It was inconvenient when I was running out. I finally decided to try something new and discovered As I am Super Butter creme, which is available at my local Walgreens.

So if you have a product that you can only purchase online or at a store inconvenient to your home, make sure that you have a convenient backup or stock up enough to ensure you never, ever run out!
