Since I shared my natural shampoos and conditioners that I use, I thought I would share my natural hair products that I use too. If you read the shampoo and conditioner post, you know that I realize hair textures and types are all so different and what works for me does not work for everyone, but for those that it may, here are the few products I currently use. It’s mainly two.

Natural Hair Products
What it’s best for – Making the hair feel softer, silkier, shinier, reducing frizz, and holding a style longer.
Ahh, I love this one. I think this would work well for the majority of hair types too- straight, curly, wavy, thin, thick, the whole shebang! It’s just a great overall product. It is a lightweight balm that helps condition, moisturize, reduce frizz, hold a style, and make your hair feel softer and a bit shinier.
There are so many ways to use this product. You can apply it to both towel dried hair or dry hair. It acts as a heat protectant before blow drying or curling hair and helps hold the style longer. You can also apply it to towel dried hair and braid your hair to improve natural waves. This is what I like to do.
I use this balm in conjunction with the Innersense I Create Waves product below. A little balm, a little spritz, some braids, and that’s the extent of my hair styling most weeks. Sometimes I will reapply the balm to my dry hair a few days after washing it to help tame the frizz, soften my hair and add some shine again.
This product does not weigh your hair down or make it feel oily. It really does feel like a “velvet-cream balm” like the package describes. It melts right into the hair without making it feel like you have product in your hair. I squeeze a pea size amount onto my finger tips and rub my hands together and then apply it to my hair. A little goes a long way so the tube lasts a long time. I really like the light neroli scent that comes through.
The product is free of synthetic scents, parabens, sulfates, and silicon.
What it’s best for – To enhance or create waves while adding texture and volume.
I’m a big fan of salt sprays with my naturally wavy hair. It took me a little bit to figure out how to best use this one, but I eventually got it down and now I love it. I like to spritz a few sprays on my hand, rub it together and apply it to the length of my hair when it’s still damp. After this I braid my hair and leave it in overnight. When I take out my braids the next morning, my naturally curly waves are enhanced. Once in awhile I will spray a few spritzes directly onto dry hair to make old curls look more refreshed. I just don’t do this often as I don’t wash my hair often and I don’t like the feel of product in my hair.
It says it’s ideal for all hair types and textures. I would say it’s best for styling the beachy wave look and refreshing curls. As long as you don’t overdo it, you won’t have sticky hair like some salt sprays leave you.
Another salt spray I should mention is Captain Blanketship. It’s a much lighter hold than the Innersense, but I love that it does not have much of a product feel in my hair.
Natural Hair Products Honorable Mentions
The Jordan Seban Le Balm and Innersense I Create Waves are my tried and true weekly products I use right now. If you are looking for a great new product, I highly recommend the above. However, I will still mention two other hair products in my drawer that I occasionally use. Plus one that I may never use up.
Beautycounter Smooth & Control Hair Oil
This is actually my favorite hair oil I have ever used, but of course it is not made anymore. It makes my hair look more polished and styled when I use it and really tames the frizz. I’m saving what I have left for the summer months. If I buy a new oil in the future that I like, I will share it.
This product adds loads of shine. The tricky part is not using too much otherwise my hair feels oily. If I only use a small amount though, it’s perfect. If you don’t mind a lemongrass scent and are looking for a lot of shine, take a peak at this one. Just be careful not to use too much.
This one is a womp womp for me. If you have followed me long enough, you know I do not like wasting anything and will try to use up a product in some way shape or form. I met my match on this one though. It’s an extremely clean sea salt spray, but it does not work for me. I have to spray a boat load on my hair for it to do anything and I soak my hair in the process. I am not saying it won’t work for you, but just be aware if this is a sea salt spray you are looking at.
