Build Your Natural Hair Essential Kit in 10

natural hair essentials must have kit

Here are mine…

  • Shampoo and Conditioner
    For obvious reasons.

  • Micro fiber towel
    After washing your hair – micro fiber verses terry cloth towels prevent snags.  You can find an inexpensive towel in the car supply section, or just use an old t shirt.

  • Butterfly Clamps
    Before styling – use clamps to part in a minimum of four sections

  • Wide Tooth Comb
    Helps rake large sections of kinks

  • Rat Tail Comb
    Use the end for neat parts.  I’ve been known to be resourceful, and even use the end of a pen!

  • Denman Brush
    I was very skeptical about using this plastic brush on my thick kinky hair, but wow – now I can’t live with out it.

  • Oil
    Add a few drops of oil to each section.  My top favorite oils are jojoba, coconut, vitamin E, aragan / Moroccan oil or castor oil.

  • Spray Bottle
    I get the most twist-out definition by competing twists on dry hair with light sprays of water

  • Satin Bonnet
    No style is complete – without preserving it at night with a sexy, well not so sexy cover

Salon Experience

Hot Combin’…
A year plus ago, I had an itch to change up my hair via the hot comb, but needed a trusted referral.

After getting my hair pressed in the past, I would see patches of different textures from burnt hair.  After applying water, it just wouldn’t kink back up.  To re-‘fro, I would cut much of my hair off. Understanding my concern, Ms. Stylist pressed it, but not too hard.  When my hair maintains its straightness, I know my coils have been disrupted.  This is the main reason I do not press.
