The natural hair trend continues to grow, not only in South Africa but globally. We, the women of colour, are embracing our natural hair and are investing in keeping it healthy, well-nourished and well moisturized. This is regardless of whether we wear our lace wigs or not. It has become important to take care of our natural hair whether we choose to wear it or not.
In the past, we had very limited options in terms of natural hairstyles, good hair maintenance products that exclude the following harsh ingredients:
- Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate
- Sodium Chloride
- Polyethylene Glycols
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Colours
But now there is an array of good, safe products for our natural hair. Here are the Bloss Africa Top 3 safe, natural hair products that you can definitely try out:
1. Design Essential Coconut Monoi moisture milk balm
