Finding the right hair products is an essential part of creating a hair goals checklist. As your hair may react during the different seasons, we found that five products are essential to have during any season. If your hair needs some tender, love, and care, read below on the five products you need for your checklist.
Masks, masks, masks. Masks are an essential part of your hair routine. They can moisturize, condition, and even give protein for your hair. We love to use our masks for an hour with a shower cap. Your body heat will naturally heat up the mask. If you are naturally curly or have colored treated hair, masks are great for maintenance. Our favorites are the Shevadi Protein Mask, Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask, and Christopher Robin Aloe Vera Hair Mask.
If you ever felt that your hair was super itchy or greasy just after washing your hair, your hair scalp may be clotted with products. You need a clarifying shampoo to get rid of the built-up. Women, especially black women, try so many products in their hair, which can lead to a huge blockage of the growing hair follicle. It’s important to clean your hair properly. We love these shampoos like this Paul Mitchel Clarifying Shampoo, and Ouidid Water Works Clarifying Shampoo.
If you want to grow your hair out, hair vitamins are an essential part of your routine. We always recommend pairing liquid vitamins with a great diet and water to ensure that they are effective. Always make sure to check the ingredients and consult with a doctor. Our favorites are the Curls Liquid Vitamins.
Hair oils can help with moisturizing and sealing the dry ends of your hair. You can also use oils to do scalp massages to encourage your hair to grow. We recommend doing massages three times a week. From a light oil to use in the day time to a thick oil at night, we love how oils make our hair feel. Our favorites are Kreyòl Essence Haitian Black Castor Oil with Lavender Hibiscus and Ouai Rose Hair & Body Oil.
After you did all the work in taking care of your hair, what about when you are sleeping? We love to use silk pillowcases to make sure our hair is not getting damaged from tossing and turning all night long. Our favorites are the Slip Silk Pillowcase and Mulberry Silk Standard Pillowcase.
This checklist can get you started in achieving your hair goals. From finding the right product to sleeping at night, our hair is something we all should take care of.
