5 Alternative Products To Try In 2015

Inasmuch as we love our ready-made products, there are times when we need to get out of the box and experiment with other things. Fortunately for us, there are products that are relatively safe for the general health of our hair so it's important to implement them into our regimen every now and then.

1. Henna. 
You're seriously slacking if you haven't used henna for your hair. Henna is everything and then some. It's particularly great for strengthening your strands and improving the general condition of the hair plus you could always add some hibiscus for added color effects.

It's a super moisturizing and detangling product of cow milk that's perfect for natural hair especially for moisture and curl definition. It can be purchased from Indian and grocery stores.

3. Herbal rinses. 
There are a myriad of herbal/tea rinses that are of optimum benefits to natural hair. For example, black/green tea which is awesome for shedding, hibiscus rinse, neem rinse, lemongrass rinse, moringa rinse e.t.c. There's this extra bwhen there are used at the end of wash days.

4. Clays. 
This is something I can't wait to try this year. It encompasses the whole wash day procedure into one.

5. Ayurvedic powders 
These powders are the currently one of the best things to happen to natural hair. Please don't miss out on all its goodness.

What other products are you planning to try out this year ?

Love, kinks and knots.

  1. Henna is on my list of "to try" this year. I need to get my hands on this ghee.
    The woes of not living in Lagos.

  2. I'm desperate for some manshanu (similar to ghee, also from cow milk). This Lagos; I can't find the fulani women that sell.
    Trust me the clay masque...awesome.
    Henna sounds great but I keep shying away cos of the potential stains to self and bathroom

    1. I thought Manshanu is ghee. I still think it is

    2. Manshanu is the hausa name for ghee.

      The thing with henna is, after a couple of applications, once you get a hang of it, the tendency of stains reduce. You would find your way around it without necessarily soiling the whole place.
