Natural, curly afro hair without conditioner? Now that’s a disaster waiting to happen, right?
That’s exactly the reason why we think that finding the right leave-in conditioner for your hair type is absolutely imperative for your hair care.
How on earth are you supposed to begin searching for a leave-in conditioner when you’ve only just figured out what shampoo you’re supposed to be using? Or what if you don’t even know your curl pattern yet?
It can all get pretty complicated pretty fast. That’s why we’re here to shed some light on things.
After all, what are friends for? For girls with a loose curl, we suggest:
Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie For Black Hair
Absolutely perfect for enhancing the beauty your hair already has, we have to recommend this leave-in to all our sisters worried about their volume and curl definition. This product is definitely for you if you’ve identified at around a type 2 or light 3 curl pattern.
Without being too thick in consistency and without leaving enough product for your hair to become greasy and itchy, the shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie is a product we deeply love. Plus, it’s coconut and hibiscus… hello?
It’s going to smell amazing too! Shea Moisture done good on this one.
Earth’s Nectar Hair Care Conditioning Detangler For Afro Hair
Coming in an smaller styled spray bottle, we recommend Earth’s Nectar’s conditioning detangler for daily use. This is the cheapest product we’ve included, however it is also the most difficult to find!
Most general stores won’t sell this and it’ll take you a little trip to Amazon to find this total gem by Sephora. It’s best to use the conditioning detangler before you start adding anything else to your hair. It’ll give your hair a lighter, smoother, fluffy feel that’ll be perfect for styling.
For girls with thick hair we recommend:
Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave In Conditioner For Thick Hair
Hell yes, just by the name we know Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil is going to be hardcore. As a product that has stayed around for over 5 years now, it has to be doing something right.
And, my lord, it is!
We like to use this conditioner straight after washing and then in small doses before our daily hair styling. It is easily evenly distributed and perfect for anyone with thicker, dryer hair as it’s extremely moisturising too.
If you ever have trouble detangling and taming your hair then this is the product that will get you through. Regardless of whether you’re using this conditioner for general maintenance or if you’re looking for growth, it works for everything!
We urge you to pick one up for yourselves.
Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Leave In Conditioner For Curly Hair
First of all we have to mention the smell, b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. Our hair smells amazing all day every day with Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Leave In Conditioner.
It comes in a simply spray bottle for easy application and leaves our hair feeling (and looking) silky smooth. What more could a girl ask for?
We don’t recommend using this this product if your hair is very naturally oily however, because it is specifically aimed for either use on dry hair or regular use. However, overall, we’re obsessed.
Whilst we do keep this product for daily use, we also like using it directly after shampooing our hair to get that moisture locked in instantly.
Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave In Conditioner For Natural Hair
Can I get an amen! Kinky Curly’s leave in conditioner, to us, is the holy grail of all leave-in hair conditioners because, my goodness, it is good.
If you have older aunts or grandmothers, then girl, they already know about this brand it’s been around so long. Heck, I don’t even think the packaging has changed!
That’s how you just know a conditioner is good. And once we find good, we stick with it.
We’ve got no doubts you’ll be sticking with this! So, witty branding name aside, Kinky Curly will glide through your hair like butter.
It’ll leave your natural hair looking better than Beyonce’s weaves and wigs. Yes, we just said that. Regardless of how much we love Queen B, we really love this stuff.
And, finally, for all our ladies with brittle, transitioning or damaged hair you need the following.
