What Are The Best Products For Natural African American Hair?

  • Sharebar

I have been natural for over 4 years now but I still have never mastered how to properly care for my hair. I have natural, very tight coils/curls in my hair that tend to be dry and poofy. I normally just wear my hair in a TWA or curl my hair for a nice curly fro. Here’s an exampke of my type of hair (not me tho):http://www.folica.com/images/reviews/7/6…
I use l’oreal shampoo and conditioner for dry hair and the TLC Sunsilk deep conditioner. Sometimes i use African Pride hair oil and Protectiv hair creme.
What products work best to maintain moisture and health in my type of hair? I find that i have no shine in my hair, what can I do to give it luster? Also, what can i use to straighten it occasionally? Are there actually no-chemical, no-damage “perms”? Otherwise, what is the best flat iron for my hair? And what products give bounce and shine?
BTW, i refuse to use products with petroleum or mineral oil so don’t bother in telling me to “grease” my hair.
