Most Effective African Hair Care Products

Don’t cut it just yet!

We have all been there, feeling frustrated that our hair just won’t act on our desires of having supple, luxurious locks so we can just lay back, throw our hands in the air like we just don’t care. If you have curly or wavy hair, that frustration can be a lingering feeling.

Textured hair, such as curly or wavy hair is more prone to damage than straight hair. Hair care can seem tedious and quite an ordeal, especially if the desired results don’t seem to be within your grasp even after using a plethora of hair care products that promise you a shining set of the good old keratin-based companion.  


African hair has more texture to it compared to straight or even wavy hair; therefore, it is subject to more wear and tear over time.  If essential care is not provided to keep the hair moisturized and healthy, it can become worn out and brittle, which can cause breakage of your lovely strands. Now the care part can seem a little daunting because let’s face it, your favorite store probably doesn’t carry a huge collection of African hair products that are specifically formulated to maintain the health of African hair. Most people end up choosing the wrong products that end up generating quite the opposite of the desired results for their hair.

It goes without saying that the right set of African hair products is crucial for maintaining the health of your lovely curls. Now, if you were tempted to cut your hair short because it has become worn-out, you are in the right place, we’re here to help.

We went through and listed some of the products that can be very beneficial for African hair care and help you regain your confidence and boast a full, healthy head of curls.


Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Co-Wash

Co-washing, or conditioner washing, is an excellent way to care for your African hair. The idea here is to wash your hair with a conditioner only every now and then, and skip the shampoo. Shampoos often contain sulfates, such as sodium lauryl sulfate, that can cause dryness and ultimately, breakage for hair.

Briogeo’s Be Gentle, Be Kind Co-Wash takes care of that. It’s formulated to keep the natural oils in your hair and keep it moisturized, leaving it softer and more manageable after every wash. With its sulfate-free formula, it can be a worthwhile addition to your arsenal of African hair products.


Cliganic Jojoba Oil

Essential oils are underrated. They boast benefits ranging from improving your digestive system to fortifying the growth of your nails and hair. If you’re looking for a deep conditioner for hair and scalp, jojoba oil can definitely do the trick.

Extracted from the seeds of the jojoba plant, jojoba oil is lighter than most other oils. It acts as a deep conditioner for your scalp and hair, leaving them shinier and hydrated, and promotes hair growth. Just take a few drops of jojoba oil and massage them on your scalp and in your hair. You’ll notice the difference after the wash.

African Pride Shea Miracle

A leave-in conditioner for all your hair-conditioning and moisturizing needs; African Pride’s Shea Miracle keeps your hair moisturized and detangled, leaving them feeling and looking better. It has a soft texture and is fairly easy to apply on hair. For best results, apply the Shea Miracle to your hair, cover it with a plastic cap for about 10 minutes, and then rinse thoroughly. This can be repeated every other day.


Alikay Naturals Avocado Cream Moisture Repairing Mask

Avocados are known for being saturated with vitamins and healthy fats. This hair repairing mask by Alikay Naturals is aimed at treating and revitalizing chemically-treated hair that has become lifeless from the abuse of harsh chemicals. In addition to nourishing your hair from top to bottom, the Avocado Cream Moisture Repairing Mask also nourishes your scalp and prevents hair loss.

Twisted Sista Leave-in Conditioner

Another great product that can supercharge your arsenal of African hair products; Twisted Sista Leave-in Conditioner is loaded with natural ingredients including coconut and avocados to leave your hair tamed and moisturized without weighing them down. It also contains amino acids that are beneficial for hair growth and works wonders for curly hair and coarser textures.
