10 Hair Products That Were Made For Your Afro And Textured Hair
You may love summer but alas your hair might not be so thrilled with the idea of styling in the heat. If you're blessed with afro or textured hair, then you’re already aware of the challenge we naturalistas face on a daily basis. Fear of damage from changeable weather is one thing, but the prospect of dry, brittle hair is frankly panic-inducing. Which is where the hair products come in.
So, whether you’re after textured hair maintenance, or looking for a leg up with styling, these are the best afro and textured hair products getting you through the summer looking epic AF.
Silke London 'The Kate' Hair Wrap - £45
Sometimes all a girl needs is to pull back her hair and let the curls do the talking. But don’t worry, you don’t have to be a wiz at fabulously bundling up your head – not when ready-made bands and wraps are out there.
The Afro Hair & Skin Co. Flourish Totally Nourishing Hair Butter - £18.50
The Afro Hair & Skin Co. is great at providing healthy hair saviours without any nasties and this butter is one of its most popular gems. ‘Flourish’ tackles brittle hair by providing deep rooting moisture from scalp to tip.
Mayfair Bendy Rubber Rods - £4.99
This is an overnighter, but the results are worth it. Twist small to medium chunks of your hair around these rods, spray your favourite protective mist, wrap up and sleep on it. Come morning, you’ll see.
Tangle Teezer The Wet Detangler Hair Brush - £11
Second only to finger detangling, this gentle but effective brush is great when used on wet hair. While using your favourite co-wash, just pass the brush through your hair and feel as the 325 unique teeth flex over tangles and knots.
Jamaican Mango & Lime Black Castor Oil Extra Dark - £4.99
It’s no secret that castor oil is liquid gold for hair, but this mango and lime edition (which is also extra dark) is ideal for hot oil treatments that will rejuvenate your locks.
Big Hair No Care The Zero Drama Queen Clip-Ins - £42
'She Unleashed' founder Freddie Harrel has ventured further into entrepreneurialism with her new line of afro textured clip-ins. The ‘0% human hair’ clip-ins are here to make protective styling easier, finally. Ranging in colour and curl pattern, the clip-ins work just like extensions to boost length and volume.
Charlotte Mensah Manketti Oil Finishing Mist - £38
The latest in Charlotte Mensah’s formidable range of award-winning hair products, this mist is set to take the beauty world by storm. Not only does it add shine, but the essential oils ensure your hair is protected from environmental damage.
Oribe Star Glow Styling Wax - £39
A surprising addition to the list, but this particular product should be in everyone’s tool kit. The styling wax gives gloss to hair and the strength of its gel-like formula adds flexibility to styling. That’s all well and good, but its secret use is for something else entirely: your girl’s edges.
As I Am So Much Moisture Hydrating Lotion - £10.75
Specifically designed for curly, coyly and kinky hair, this nourishing moisturiser is great for daily use and cheeky top ups. It also has a detangling effect to help make your tresses a little more manageable. You’ll get the best use out of it with freshly washed hair.
KeraCare Natural Textures Leave-In Conditioner - £5.75
This highly concentrated formula packs quite the punch and does a great job of tempering unruly curls. While the conditioner helps with styling, it also promotes healthy hair and scalp.
