As someone who likes to switch up her hair every now and again, I often find myself worrying about heat damage, moisturizing, and maintaining a healthy curl pattern. I use so many different hairstyles such as weaves, braids, and even straitening my natural hair.

What happens once you just stop and wear your natural hair?

Recently I removed a protective style from my head and realized that I have not gave my natural hair much time to breathe this semester .Although there  is nothing wrong with wearing different protective styles year round, once you get to know and understand how to maintain your natural hair your life becomes so much easier. When I am just trying to let my natural hair breathe and thrive I have five hair products that I live by. Now, not everyone gets to peek inside my natural hair vault of secrets , but I hope these products maybe very helpful to you:

  • Unrefined  Virgin Coconut Oil – this product is a life saver. You can  use it all over your body but most importantly your hair. For most people who have dry scalps that immediately sucks up moisture, coconut oil is one of the best products to use to maintain a healthy moisturized scalp. Also I personally use the coconut oil as a hot oil treatment to add moisture shine and softness to my hair.

  • Cantu Curl Activator– I love the the Cantu Shea Butter line. I tend to use the curl activator the most because when I give my natural hair a break from heat, I wear my natural curls. The Cantu Curl Activator is a great way  to keep your curls defined with minimized fizz.

  • Cantu Leave-In Conditioner– This is hands down one of the best products in the Cantu Shea Butter line. It’s a thick cream but it actually feels weightless in your hair.Unlike many other products it leaves your hair nice and moisturized without making it oily to the touch. The best thing about this leave in is that you don’t have to reapply daily.Image result for cantu leave in conditioner
