5 Non-Essential Tools You Might Need For Your Natural Hair

Hello everyone!

I know we all probably have our staple tools - the hair clamps, shower caps and whatnot. But some of us still have one of two extra tools that make managing natural hair a cakewalk.

The best thing about some of these tools is that they can be found in our pantries. No need buying special ones for your natural hair. Well, except you're like me.

1. Cling film 
Before I got my thermal cap, my cling film did all of the magic especially during henna treatments. It's ability to completely seal up my hair even without the need for a shower cap is what makes it an essential tool in my stash.

2. Applicator brush 
To be honest, I got this a while ago but never got around to using it again after a couple of times. It just wasn't as convenient as using my hands. In the meantime, I use it to apply my tumeric face mask which stains like hell!

3. Rubber gloves 
An equally but not necessarily important tool as long as you don't mind coloured (read orange) hands.

4. Soft bristle brush
Most people prefer to use toothbrushes in place of a soft bristle brush. But I noticed that this is more convenient as you have better control of your edges.

5. Applicator bottle 
It's amazing, heck disappointing how many naturals do not see the need for an applicator bottle. Mahn, you have no need idea how far this can go in helping you remember to oil and massage your scalp everyday. I mean, the sight of the bottle alone is enough motivation.

6. Thermal Cap 
If you're been fancy and can't really afford to get a steamer, this essential cap can change the entire game - from deep conditioning to hot oil treatments. Don't say I didn't tell you.

So, what are those seemingly unimportant tools that have major impact on your natural hair?

  1. "It's amazing, heck disappointing how many naturals do not see the need for an applicator bottle." this right here just made me swallow my words back.. i am part of those naturals oo. Thermal cap is on my list of to-buys , i use dryer for my DC for the main time.

  2. A thermal cap and an applicator bottle. In fact a need a new cap. Always find myself buying bottles with nozzles solely for the purpose of using them as applicator bottles once their product is done. They may or may not also make good scratching tools when oiling my scalp *covers face*

  3. I got an applicator bottle and used it just once, and now I can't find it. These days even moisturising daily takes effort. Daily massaging makes my scalp hurt but I'd have liked to have my bottle back for my coffee treatments. Sigh.

  4. Applicator bottles o! Oils should be in applicator bottles!
