heyitsbkay asked: What shea butter would you recommend for moisturizing?
How often should I moisturize? I am transitioning.

Personally, I use Roots of Nature product with Shea Butter and Green Tea strengthening oil moisturizer. Another product in most beauty supply stores is called Cantu, they have really good Shea Butter moisturizers. 

You should definitely moisturize daily! Moisturizing should definitely become a routine habit because the last thing you want is to have to deal with a dry scalp!

Best of luck on transitioning! It is definitely a journey but it’s one that you’ll love and hopefully we’ll be able to help along the way!

Looking for Natural Hair Products?

We are often looking for the perfect products that will benefit our hair the most yet we are often clueless as to what ingredients for those products to have. Research has been done of some of the ingredients our product of choice should include:

  • Honey
  • Aloe Vera
  • Vitamin E
  • Eggs
  • Shea Butter
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Sodium Laureth Sulfate
  • Cetyl or Cetearyl Alcohol
  • Oils

When you get into the best oils to have in your product there is an entire list. Common oils that are very beneficial are:

  • Coconut oil
  • Olive oil
  • Jojoba oil
  • Avocado oil
  • Castor oil
  • Organic Soybean oil

Hopefully, you’ll find a product that feature many of these ingredients. We’re sure there are more that are beneficial to the hair and in the coming weeks We will hope to find them and let you all know more about them. Also, there will be another post that will go into more detail of WHY these products are beneficial to hair.

Do you all know any other ingredients that should be in products beneficial to our hair? Do you know any products that include any or most of these ingredients? If so, please share! 

Nappy is kind of like the word “nigga”. I can call my hair nappy, but you can’t.
