I love the Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque. I do use the Curl Enhancing Smoothie, but only certain months of the year just for moisture but not really for the curl enhancement portion. I use the Hello Hydration conditioner when I do my henna treatments. I mix it right in my henna mix. I also like Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo and Conditioner (around $4 each).

It has to be Giovanni Smooth as Silk Conditioner, I love it but because of the price I alternate with Tresemme Naturals.

I live in the UK so I can’t get the majority of the products without paying a lot for postage and you have to pay tax on it coming from the US although I paid the tax in the US. Even Giovanni Smooth as Silk Conditioner is expensive in the UK it costs £7.99 which is about $12.46 and at Whole Foods it costs more.

I moved to Ireland from the US and Giovanni Smooth as Silk has saved me. I think it’s a superior conditioner and I can’t imagine using anything else but it is rather pricey here. It appears to be cheaper in the UK than in the ROI (12 euro)! The next time I am home I intend to buy a gallon (or two) to bring back here. I hope they’ll fit in my luggage!

I recently purchased the Taliah Waajid Protective Mist Bodifier from CVS ($8, 8 oz). I like it layered under my moisturizer but I think the wheat germ extract made me break out. I rarely get pimples/blemishes and, accoding to my research, wheat germ oil/extract is very comedogenic. I’ll have to stop using it… 🙁 Anyways, here are my some of my favorite products under $10: –Garnier Fructics Triple Nutrition Conditioner (Detangler/Pre-Poo; $5–7; 24.5 oz; Target, CVS, RiteAid, etc.) –Shea Moisture Moisture Retention Shampoo ($9.99; 12 oz; Target & Walgreens) –Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk (Moisturizer; $9.99; 8 oz; Target & Walgreens)… Read more »

I have! I love it. Probably more than the shea moisture smoothie. The scent is awesome (think more roses than citrus) and it’s not so sticky as the smoothie to me/ the smoothie for me is great for keeping my hair moist…but that means my twist outs aren’t as defined when I do them on dry hair. I like the Alaffia for that much better.

The Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa conditioner may be cheap, but it contains parabens so its price speaks for the the product.

Methylparaben is produced naturally and found in several fruits, primarily blueberries, along with other parabens. There is no evidence that methylparaben or propylparabens are harmful at concentrations typically used in body care or cosmetics.[4] Methylparaben and propylparaben are considered generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for food and cosmetic antibacterial preservation.[5] Methylparaben is readily metabolized by common soil bacteria, making it completely biodegradable.

On this list, I’ve used… Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner…GREAT detangler, but you just don’t get as much conditioner. After a couple of washes the bottle was gone 🙁 Taliah Waajid Mist Bodifier…I could do without this product. It really didn’t do much for my hair Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose conditioner…LOVE this conditioner I use it as a cowash, I could never go wrong with this product Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie…my hair loves Shea Moisture and this product coupled with the souffle & conditioning hair milk makes my curls pop and keeps them moisturized for days I’ve always wanted to try the oyin products… Read more »

+ 1. ITA that many of the best products are cheap. I am a product junkie, so I keep trying the more expensive products that people often rave about and most times I am very disappointed. Always come back to my cheaper products that work better. But, I have finally learned my lesson and I am sticking to my cheaper products that work for my hair.

Hey there!

I’m sure the title is referring to products associated tried and tested or otherwise marketed towards “women with natural hair”. Not necessarily products that are 100% natural.

I agree with the other poster. This list is not about products with all natural ingredients. Herbal essence is not a natural product either. I am one who often uses a combination of nature and science. I tend to do what works for my hair. Which is what I think this post is about.

My faves from this list are:
* Hello Hydration Conditioner: I use this with a few Indian herbs as a pre-poo.
* Giovannia conditioner (I use a lot of the Giovanni line: 50:50 Balanced Hydration Clarifying shampoo and the Direct Leave-in)
* Eco-styler gel: I have only used this product once, and it gave good hold. Will be trying it in the future though for braid outs.

The Vo5 conditioners should be added to the list too!! I’ve used these products since day one of becoming natural! I can get this stuff for 70 cents when it’s on sale.

I love the Tresemme Naturals conditioner. No cones and tons of slip! Buy it on sale and you can get two large bottles for less than $10. Also the raw shea butter from the Rastaman in Kensington market. Shout outs to my Toronto naturals! Oooh and don’t forget the Dr. Bronner’s soap… dilute it (1oz to 8 oz of water) and a $10 bottle will last you at least 5 years.

I have used 6 of the 10. i also agree that V05 Moisture Milks condish should be added to the list. They are at the most $1 and great for co washing. Of the ones I have used - Giovanni smooth as silk — love this and agree with earlier post to look for it at Marshalls or TJ maxx. I scored a 32 oz for $13 too! This is a protein heavy condish and my hair likes protein — that may be why it doesn’t work well for all. Protein does make it more brittle if your hair doesn’t like it. Nourish… Read more »

Okay, get ready to laugh! The latest product I have tried under $10 by which I’m starting to swear is Greek yogurt. Yup! Greek yogurt! Naptural85 has a Youtube video describing how she uses it in her hair. Taking off from her tutorial, I combine 3–4 oz of it with 2–3 tsp ACV and roughly the same amount of EVOO, maybe a few drops more. There are differences in the way we both do this treatment. She doesn’t detangle first. I do, very carefully, on dry hair. The EVOO was a substitution I made because I don’t have the essential oils… Read more »

I can’t believe nobody mentioned AUSSIE MOIST CONDITIONER!! I’m still testing, but I’ve yet to find a better conditioner for the price. BIG bottle with a PUMP dispenser for around $7, which comes in sooo handy when you’re got slippery condish fingers and need a lil more product. I can buy it at any Walmart, which just makes it that much more fantastic!

I love the Taaliah Waajid Protective Mist Bodifier. I personally found that it didn’t distribute evenly on my hair when I sprayed it because it was so thick. I diluted it down 1 part mist to 3 parts water and its amazing for a quick rehydration before sealing. It also freshens up dry looking twists. Diluting it allows me to manipulate it/spread it better for my hair’s needs making it more effective than full strength. As a bonus, I can make my bottle stretch a while. Win-win! I also love the Organic Root Stimulator Hair Mayonnaise as a deep conditioner.… Read more »

I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems
like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be

Horsetail contains silicon, which plays a role in strengthening bone. For that reason, it is sometimes suggested as a treatment for osteoporosis. It is also used as a diuretic, and as an ingredient in some cosmetics. However, very few studies have looked at horsetail’s effect in humans.”^^,
