As an avid lover of natural hair care, it’s extremely difficult to find the right products that should be in your products! It’s almost too easy to find what to avoid, but we’re here to highlight what to find. We’re gonna focus on the positive and give our beautiful coils the ingredients they need to thrive without potentially harmful, stripping ingredients. We’re gonna break down all the best ingredients for strengthening to diminish the possibility of breakage and dryness!
I will continue to shout this from the mountain tops. If you’re truly looking for a hydrating product, water should be listed as either the first or second ingredient! Legit “Water” or “Purified Water” would ideally be listed first to illustrate the hydrating properties of the products. There’s nothing more hydrating than pure H2O so no other ingredient will nourish your coils to that depth. Water eases the process of detangling to fully hydrate and nourish your curl pattern. It’s the most vital source of life so applying it to your hair will add credibility to the products you choose to use.
Thankfully there are so many hydrating products that list water as the first ingredient. Ayur Love’s Damage Control Leave-In Conditioner specializes in smoothing the hair cuticle as a creamy herbal leave-in conditioner. The first ingredient is water which is typical or a leave-in conditioner since they’re meant to be easily soluble! Another product is Karen’s Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia Leave-In Conditioner defines like a dream. Purified Water is listed as the first ingredient so there’s no hesitancy in its hydrating properties.
Biotin is a useful vitamin that has plenty of benefits. It can be applied either topically or orally via supplements to enrich your health from the inside out! Biotin is highly recommended for hair health since it encourages hair growth and strength from the scalp. As stated before, the health of the scalp dictates all the hair that grows out of it.
Biotin can be found in various hair products such as Hairfinity Balanced Moisture Conditioner and Honey Baby Naturals Honey Shea Butter Hair Smoothie. Both products nourish hair from the root to increase manageability and protection from external damage to encourage hair growth. If you’re looking for some newfound inches, biotin will help you get there!
3) Natural oils
There are various natural oils you can choose from. It was too difficult to pick from Jojoba, Olive, or Coconut oil so to generalize their potential, they’re limited to one category. Depending on your personal needs and desires, each oil has their benefits! Thankfully most natural oils are enriched in fatty acids to increase shine and protection. They’re also environmentally friendly so the reduction of exposure to harmful ingredients is diminished!
If you’re interested in products that are enriched with natural oils, the Genedor Beauty Moisture Resuscitate Deep Conditioning Treatment and Bel Nouvo G.R.O. Cmplx Nettle Flax Hair Creme pride themselves in being formulated with natural oils to promote hair strength in the best way!
4) Rice Protein

There’s lots of historical anecdotes that testify to the versatility of rice protein in hair, so it’s been formulated into some of the best product available in today’s market! Great examples include Mielle Organics Rice Water Moisturizing Milk and Soultanicals Sprout Rice Vitamin Hair Milk that are both creamy and lightweight to encourage better absorption of moisture.
5) Aloe Vera
Last but certainly not least, aloe vera provides contains enzymes that repair sin cells on the scalp. Because it’s best for scalp health, it prevents dandruff and its annoying symptoms to fully condition. As a result, it’s a great ingredient to optimize shine and silkiness.
