Purchasing products for your natural hair should not be done on a whim.
You should be taking up each bottle and looking what is in it before purchasing. This allows you to know as well as have an understanding of what you are putting in your natural hair prior to it. Some ingredients are toxic for our hair and scalp. While others make our hair looks and feel better in the long run. In today's blog post, we'll be looking at the 3 ingredients that you should be looking for in your Conditioners.
1. CETEARYL ALCOHOL - Just reading the name, it doesn't sound like such a great ingredient especially since it has the word "alcohol" in it. However, it is a great ingredient as it is a "fatty chain". This means that is it derived from a natural sources. They aid in maintaining the longevity of the health of your hair. So they allow hydration to penetrate the hair shaft so that it stays moisturised longer. In addition, it allows your hair to feel smoother and softer so it's easier to detangle as well as comb when you are styling. as well as, it aids in maintaining the natural glow of your tresses.
2. OILS - Next up are oils. Oils are such a wide variety because they contain growth, sealing, penetrating, moisturising and so many other oil categories. So we can't say which oil is the "BEST" for your hair. You have to decide if the product has, for example, olive oil if it works on your hair. if it does, then definitely purchase it. If it doesn't then you need to decide if you want to take a chance with the product.
3. BUTTER - And finally are butters. Similarly to oils, there are A LOT of butters in the market. So there is no one size fits all for butter. Everybody's hair type, texture and porosity is different. Again, you have to choose one that works with your hair. and if you don't know, then you can look at previous purchases of "Creamy" stylers or conditioners to see what butter or cream is used in the manufacturing of it. if it works, then you're good to go. if not, then you know what to do.
