Guide for How to Select the Best Product for Styling

Time after time, are you not getting the outcome you want after you have styled your hair? Lacking the right product know how may be the issue.  Here are 4 of the most common natural hair styles and the best natural hair product to use for each style type:

Wash n Go’s



You ideally want to use a gel product for a wash n go. A butter for example may show off your curl pattern, but in most cases does not give you nearly as much definition or hold.

Some gel products to try:
Kinky Curly Custard

Wonder Curl Get Set Jelly


Or if you like DIY, you can make your own gel using flax seeds. It gives great hold, it’s all natural and it is a huge money saver. The only downside is you must store it in your fridge because without preservatives it will be prone to bacterial growth.

A good butter without a doubt will aid in stretching and elongating your hair. In this scenario, a gel will not be ideal because remember gels are good at curling your hair up.


Set Styles (Twist Outs, Roller Sets, Bantu Knot Outs)

A product that doesn’t give you enough hold will make the look more prone to frizz, less defined and not as long lasting. Apply section by section and make sure your hair is thoroughly detangled.


For Braids and Twists

When you first do your twists you can apply a butter to your hair to seal in moisture. For daily maintenance, use a light moisturizing spray product. A spray product will be easier to use and more effective for moisturizing while wearing braid or twist styles.
