Hello everyone, and welcome back to my blog. 

Over Easter weekend, I posted a boomerang to my Instagram stories showing my natural hair blown out. It received much love and a couple of questions about what products I use, so I decided to make a whole blog post about it.


I think I have type 4B/4C natural hair, which I still have not found the right hair type I have, but overall my hair is super kinky, coily, and curly, so I have to use certain products along with specific hair methods to make it flourish.

I made a prior blog post about my wash day routine (which you can check out right here) but didn't go into full detail about the products that I use, so in this post, I will explain why I like and use each product.


Shampoo






Okay, you all, let's start with the shampoo. At first, I didn't care about what shampoo I used as long as it just cleansed my scalp, but lately, I have been using the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo by SheaMoisture it changed my life. So Jamaican Black Castor Oil is said to thicken/strengthen your hair and help it grow, and my hair has grown a lot over the past year. 

When using this shampoo, I like to do with it because after I apply it to my scalp, I like to massage my scalp in circular motions because I hear that it can help promote hair growth. So if you are looking for a perfect shampoo, then I highly recommend this one.



Deep Conditioners



If you are not already, I highly recommend deep conditioning for all my curly girls. Deep Conditioning helps prevent damage and bring some moisture back to your hair. My favorite deep conditioners are the 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Rehydration Treatment Masque and the Yucca & Plantain Anti-Breakage Strengthening Masque. I usually do because, after shampoo, I will apply the deep conditioner while twisting my hair. I will usually let it sit for about ten minutes if I need to go faster or forty-five minutes if I have some time on my hands. The moisture comes right back to my hair, and upon rinsing, I can feel the softness.




Conditioners



I use conditioner to detangle my hair because the more curly your hair is, the more tangled it gets. I use the Aussie Moist Conditioner because it moisturizes my hair as well, and it's a huge bottle with a lot of conditioner in it for a relatively low price of around five dollars. Also, it has a little pump which makes it easier to use when washing. I'm just pointing out little details, but it matters when it comes to wash day.




Leave-In Conditioners





I use many different conditioners, but I like to use leave-in conditioners to help keep moisture in my hair during the day because my hair does dry out fast. I want to use the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Leave-In Conditioner by Shea Moisture because it just does wonders for my hair. After washing, I will use this leave-in conditioner to twist my hair or do any other protective style. It holds the moisture in for a solid three or four days before I have to apply some more for some rejuvenation.

Shampoo, deep conditioners, regular conditioners, and leave-in conditioners are usually used every week upon wash day. Still, there are a couple of products that I like but only use on occasion.



Manuka Honey & Yogurt Hydrate + Repair Protein Power Treatment by SheaMouisture


When my hair is extremely dry and damaged, I like to use a protein treatment to help bring back life to my hair. With that being said, I use and have only used the Manuka Honey & Yogurt Hydrate + Repair Protein Power Treatment by SheaMouisture. After I use this treatment, my hair feels super moisturized, but my curls are super defined. I want to try out other protein treatments, but I'm very content with this one.


Wash Day Wonder Pre-Cleanse Slip Detangler by DevaCurl 



Like I said above, my hair is super curly, so sometimes I opt to detangle my hair before I go into washing to part my hair more manageable. This detangler provides so much slip that it makes detangling so much easier. I usually will apply it to my strands and finger detangle as much as possible and then go in with shampoo and the rest of my routine.

Well, that is all that I have for this post. I hope that I was able to recommend some new products to you. Comment down below your favorite hair care products.
