Protective Styling Gone Wrong

The Best Oils

castor oil
#1 Jamaican Black Castor Oil – This oil is my jam! It’s super thick so a little bit goes a long way. One of the best all natural ways to seal some moisture into your hair.

#2 Jojoba Oil – Jojoba Oil has a similar composition to sebum, a natural moisturizer that our body produces. I found it works exceptionally well for sealing in moisture and the health of my ends.

#3 Coconut Oil – This oil works particularly well for pre-pooing purposes. Used on your hair before cleansing can reduce the dryness that you experience afterward and also helps protect against hygral fatigue. It has also been shown to be good for sealing moisture in and penetrating the hair strand.

#4 Olive Oil – Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is another great sealant with the ability to penetrate the hair strand. Best of all it is commonly found right in your kitchen!

The Best Cleansers & Conditioners

#1 Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Shampoo – Most shampoos that I have tried are pretty drying, while this buttery shampoo actually leaves my hair feeling moisturized even when I am a little lazy and didn’t bother to condition. It also happens to be free of sulfates, parabens, and all of the other crazy ingredients we can barely pronounce.

#2 Naked Honey Almond Conditioner

A solid deep conditioner that moisturizes and softens my strands.

#3 Giovanni Tea Tree Deep Conditioning Treatment

This conditioner smells amazing, makes detangling a cinch and gives your scalp a refreshing tingly feeling.

#4 Aphogee 2 Step Protein Treatment

When my hair needs a boost in strength this is my go to product. It puts in some serious work to repair damaged hair, so you only need to use this every six weeks or as needed.

The Best Products for DIY

Make your own natural hair product
I have gotten my best twist out results using products that I created! Here are some of the best ingredients for creating DIY products:

#1Shea Butter – This is a rich emollient that will help you seal moisture into your strands. I find that in it’s raw state it is quite thick so it is best that you whip it so it melts down and spreads more evenly throughout your hair.

#2Aloe Vera – I love pairing this with Shea Butter this humectant moisturizes your hair and provides a light hold.

#3Raw Honey – Honey in it’s raw state has antibacterial properties and makes for a superb moisturizer. You can use it to create your own conditioners and even stylers.

#4Flax Seeds – You can create your own moisturizing hair gel using Flax Seeds by boiling and straining them.

Remember, water is the ultimate moisturizer and it’s FREE. The only thing is, you must be careful when including it in your own formulations because if you don’t use preservative it will become susceptible to harmful bacteria. If you choose to use water store the product in the fridge and use it up within a week. It’s probably best to just create a butter based product if you want a product with more shelf life.

  • Hello, I belive I have 3c-4b hair., I wear it short. of course with my age, I find my hair is thinning. I what would like to know, what is a good natural hair product? Ihave been using Design essential shampoo and conditioner. I also use the wave by design cream to enhance my curls. Please advise. thankyou

  • Hi, I’ve recently went natural (about a year ago) and did a big chop in May. I have 4c hair and currently seem to find it very hard to retain my curl definition after i do a twist out. I’m currently using the LOC process with cantu for leave in, castor and coconut oil as well as Shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie as my cream. I usually keep my twists in overnight, but the curls don’t last more than a day before losing shape (especially at the ends). Is there any suggestions on what I should be doing? Maybe a different/more products or use gel to retain the curls?

    • Try the LCO method. I am 4b/4c high porosity and use Cantu Coconut Curl cream after my leave in and use olive oil last. My hair is moisturized for at least 3 days.

  • I am 64 and mostly gray now. As the gray steadily comes in my hair has become more wirry and less manageable. I have had it with perms and have tried every hair care product you can think of: Gabrielle Union Flawless, Shea Moisture, Carol’s Daughter, Curls, Etc… I have been doing natural for over a year. As time has progressed and I am totally done with worrying about and dealing with my hair, I have decided to do Sister Locks and will begin the process beginning around early October. Wish me luck .

    • I”m 62 and graying as well. After trying many products I found Aunt Jackies products to work with my 3C-4B hair and starting to see length retention. I have to work at keeping my low porosity hair moisturized, it is work but I am enjoying the results. I just did a trim as my hair got a little dry as I was focused more on work last week and let my hair go most of the week. Good Luck.

  • Mel J, Where can I find the products you mentioned?
