How I moisturise my natural hair

*Affiliate links.

I transitioned from texturised hair to natural hair about 5 years ago, and I have no regrets. My hair is strong and healthy, and I love how it looks. When I had texturised hair, my hair was horrible. I had no edges and my hair was breaking a lot. It was so weak and unhealthy, and I couldn’t stand the sight of it anymore. I was tired on hiding it underneath hair extensions that only made my hair condition worse, so I decided to embark on the long road to freedom – natural hair route.

The journey has been long and hard but so worth it. It took me a long time to figure out hair products that worked great for my coarse hair. I tried all sorts of products and I am still trying new products regularly. In my search of trying out new products, I came across the amazing Naissance Fractionated Coconut Oil, Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Leave in Conditioning Cream and some great Sheamoisture Hair Care products. I use SheaMoisture Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Masquwe every 2 weeks and these products help create the right foundation for the rest of my hair care products. 

Before stumbling on these products, I have used lots of shampoos, conditioners, masques, oils and leave in conditioners. But my current hair care products mentioned above are the best for my hair type. They are so good for natural hair protective hairstyles too!

You can watch me in the video use Naissance Fractionated Coconut Oil and  Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Leave in Conditioning Cream. These products help me moisturise my natural hair beautifully, making it soft and manageable. They also help my hair grow and stay healthy. I can’t see myself ever not using this oil and leave in conditioner. They are the best hair products I have tried in a long time. Do watch the video and tell me what you think of these haircare products and how I moisturise my natural hair.  You can follow my YouTube Channel for more updates.
