My Top Natural Hair Products of 2016

I know it’s a little late, but better late than never right? I wanted to showcase all of the natural hair products that got me through 2016 and that are heading into 2017 with me. There are so many different types of products out there and it can be tough to try and find the right ones that work for you. Girl, I’ve been there and I know the struggle. I have put together this list of my favorite products of 2016. Let’s see which products in my stash are BAE!

Best natural hair products of 2016


Design Essentials Natural Almond & Almond Shampoo

This is a very gentle, cleansing sulfate free shampoo that is infused with hydrating almond, avocado, and nourishing botanicals to help hydrate, soften and detangle curly hair. This shampoo is one of my favorite go-to shampoos for wash day! It literally melts the tangles out of your hair and moisturizes it like no other! It promises to save you up to 30 minutes of detangling time and it does just that! Try it, I won’t send you off! #boom

Creme of Nature Mango & Shea Butter Ultra- Moisturizing Shampoo

This right here is the truth *drops mic*. This shampoo gently cleanses and conditions while infusing dehydrated hair with moisture. If your hair feels super dry, wash it with shampoo and I promise you it will be moisturized!

EDENBodyworks Coconut Shea Natural Leave In

Lawd, y’all know I love me some EDEN and this is like liquid gold. I am currently all out of this conditioner and crying until I get some more because it’s just that serious man! This product definitely penetrates my hair! This leave-in is a creamy detangler that will soften hair and improve manageability. It’s also very lightweight so it won’t weigh your hair down.

Creme of Nature Coconut MilkDetangling & Conditioning Leave-In Conditioner

This two-phase leave-in conditioner softens, detangles, and conditions the hair while also protecting against damage.  It is infused with Certified Natural Coconut Oil for the win!!  I love this leave in because it definitely detangles my hair with no problems.

Curls Blueberry Bliss Reparative Leave-In

This leave in is the bomb!! It helps to repair, restore, and condition your curls and makes your hair very soft.  It is formulated with certified organic blueberry extract, coconut oil, grapeseed oil and mango butter.  It will help to repair your damaged hair, help with hair growth, and also help to prevent breakage.

Naturally Smitten Curl Delight Mist

I have been using this mist as a refresher and moisturizer for my hair. It’s very light and gives your hair shine. Not to mention that it smells just candy! I use it to wake up my 3rd-day twist outs and my hair comes back to life!!!

TGIN Honey Miracle Hair Mask

If you have been rocking with me for a while then you know exactly how I feel about this deep conditioner. It’s basically bae and I’ve been using it forever! It’s going into 2017 with me. It leaves your hair feeling like butter and uber moisturized. Buy you a few jars you will thank me later!

Bask & Bloom Brahmi Root Hair Masque

This deep treatment includes an ayurvedic herbal infusion that aids in strengthening, conditioning, and moisturizing your curls. It helps to repair, restore and promote healthy hair growth. Not to mention that it makes your hair super soft after use.

Mielle Organics Babassu Oil & Mint Deep Conditioner

This deep conditioner is made with complex amino acids to help restore moisture to damaged and dry hair. I love this for my strengthening conditioner. I use this bi-weekly. Switching between a moisturizing deep conditioner and a protein deep conditioner is healthy for your hair.

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Strong Treatment

I love this product because it’s super affordable and it also:

  • Makes hair 10x stronger against damage vs. non-conditioning shampoo with this weekly deep conditioning treatment
  • Helps shield your hair against damage

Drumroll! The best oil of 2016 is Hands down Mielle Organics Mint Almond Oil!

I use this oil as part of the LOC method in my hair care regimen. This oil adds protection and shine to the hair. It also helps reduce excessive shedding and breakage which is a major key alert, definitely in the winter. This oil is very lightweight and has helps to lock in moisture. I keep bottles on deck, that’s how serious it is.

Slay them edges honey! Yes, and that is exactly what I have been doing in 2016 with these 2 edge controls.

Mielle Organics Flexible Hold Edge Gel

Basically, this gel is everything you need in your life and will lay, slay, and anything else you need it to do to your edged period.

Creme of Nature Argan Oil Perfect Edges Extra Hold

This edge control offers maximum hold, non-flaking edge gel for long-lasting wear. It really does give you maximum hold! I love it.

Also, I can’t forget about one of my staple products Jane Carter Nourish and Shine! This is my go-to product that prevents my hair from feeling dry. I use it to take down my twist outs and braid outs!
