How to Pick the Right Product For Your Hair

Starting your natural hair journey can be a magical road to discovery where you get to explore and have fun with your hair. We no longer have to look too far to learn about our hair type as there is a plethora of hair guides and information on the internet. More than ever there is an abundance of hair products catered for curly, coily, and wavy hair and YouTube videos have educated us on everything we need to know. But still, picking the right products is not always the simplest of things as what may work for one may not necessarily work for another. So let us help make it easier for you with these simple tips to get started.


Understand your hair type!

As we mentioned earlier, knowing your hair type makes a big difference when determining what works for your hair. Matching your hair type with the right products will help to aid in new growth and keep the hair healthy. Most importantly, also research what is in the products you're choosing. The best natural hair products have organic ingredients and are usually sulfate, paraben, and silicone-free. Growing up we may not have been aware of products that could have been potentially damaging to our hair but with so much information out there, it's easier to make more conscious decisions when shopping.


Documenting your journey

This can be fun as you are journaling your journey. Do not be afraid to take lots of photos as this is a great way to stay on track with your hair and seeing what works for your hair and what doesn’t. For example, if you buy a new product at the beginning of the year, take pictures each month and by the next few months, you can see how the product is working or whether you need to get rid of it. This is a great way to see results.


Test your porosity

Porosity is essential! Knowing how well your natural hair can absorb and hold down moisture is crucial in nailing a good hair routine. Understanding your hair’s porosity can help to find the products that will keep your hair well moisturized and healthy for longer periods of time.
