Hello everyone. I’ve been receiving quite a bit of emails and this has made me feel so warm inside: I love receiving them! Please keep them coming! Many people have been asking me what products they could use for their hair.
I have already written clearly about the products that are currently in my stash at home but I figure that many people might not have them in their local beauty supply store, market, etc. Don’t worry about this: you don’t have to use the same products that I do to get similar results. The most important thing is to follow the basics. Just in case you’ve forgotten, read Growing relaxed black hair made simple again.
Have you ever gone to buy hair products and you were confused about what to buy because there were so many things? I know what you mean:
Anyway, when you want to start growing your hair, you will need the following basic things:
1. Shower/detangling comb, steaming cap, hair serum/heat protectant serum, blow dryer and flat iron if you want to do your hair at home. The blow dryer must have a cool setting so that you can dry your hair on cool air. In addition, it should be tourmaline/titanium/ceramic/ionic so that it doesn’t dry out your hair. You can easily see these labels on the box. Your flat iron must also be ionic.
2. Wide-tooth comb
3. Shampoo or hair cleanser
4. Moisturizing conditioner
5. Light protein conditioner
6. Leave-in-conditioner or wrap lotion
7. Hair oil e.g olive oil, jamaican black castor oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, etc.
8. Daily moisturizer
9. Hair accessories to hold up your hair.
10. A satin scarf or bonnet to sleep with at night. A hair net will just not do!!
Now you know these, get ready to go shopping!! But wait for the next part of the series before you do!
