2. Curls Like Us Cloths, $24 CurlMart.com
Black women of colour, rocking their natural hair texture, might have heard of the old cotton t-shirt trick. It is one of the best ways to dry newly washed hair without sucking the life out of it. If you don’t have a t-shirt to spare use this. Microfiber cloths retain water, and they protect hair from damage. Go buy yourself some!
3. Carols Daughter Tutu Moisturizing Hair Mask, $36 for two. Carol’s Daughter.com
Shampoo and Conditioner is not enough. A hair mask injects necessary moisture into your hair, and it’s something that all ladies should be using once or twice a week. Carols Daughter is a great brand for Afro hair.

This is a mighty one. It completely restores and transforms your hair!
5. Carols Daughter Hair Balm, $14,00 Carols Daughter.com
Amazing with a very light hair gel, as a moisture sealant, and for unraveling a braid out.
6. Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment for Fizzy, Dry, or Unmanageable Hair, $5.99 Drugstore.com
Hot oil treatments are essential for strengthening Afro hair. Garnier offers a great and affordable option with this one. I like to heat up my bottle in warm water for 10 minutes, slather it on from root to tip, leave it for 20 minutes, and then rinse it out before using a deep, leave-in, conditioner. It’s glorious.
Most hair ties, especially those with any trace of metal, are bad news for Afro hair. These are gentle, non irritating, and they let your hair stay on your head!
