Learning how to shop for African American hair care products can be an overwhelming task when you don’t know what to look for and what to avoid. The list is long and the ingredients for natural hair care are many. This list includes some of the elements you should know about to make choosing the right products less difficult.

Water is always important.

It’s amazing how many people overlook water as a primary hair ingredient. Water is good for the body in countless ways, and our entire being is composed mostly of water. We need it to survive, and of course, our hair does too. When water is in your hair, it just has to be kept in with an organic sealant. There’s no reason not to take advantage of water and its benefits. It is easily found and the most inexpensive ingredient around.

Raw Shea butter is the moisturizer and sealant of choice.

Some of us enter the world of natural hair care after realizing how much damage commercial products have done. Shea butter can help to reverse much of the harm that our mane has suffered on our behalf (and due to factors outside of our control).

Shea butter hydrates and its valuable ingredients will help your hair find restoration and growth. Apply the raw butter to your hair and put it on your scalp. You will soon see you hair increasing in length and becoming much more strong and attractive.

A word of caution about raw Shea butter and natural hair: don’t over do it, especially with locs.  Too much will cause build up in your hair and that’s a challenge you don’t want to have.
