Beauty for natural-haired women has come a long way. Rewind a couple of years, and you'd be hard-pressed to find products for those with hair types other than straight or wavy. But, as "going natural" has become more popular, brands that cater to ladies who choose to embrace their textured tresses have come on the scene full-force.
Black hair care has gone from taking up one lonely shelf in beauty aisles to having its own designated section at big-name stores like Target (albeit small, it's a start). And, while we're ecstatic about the recent boom — figuring out which products work for you is becoming much easier than it was in the past — it can sometimes be overwhelming. Between all the reviews from bloggers and video tutorials, it's hard to sift through the clutter and find the real deal.
That's why we've compiled a list of standouts that you should commit to memory. This includes picks that will add definition and moisture to your coils without drying them out — and, those with ingredients you'll actually be able to pronounce.
So, whether you're looking to bulk up your stash, or are transitioning and just need a little cheat sheet, you're about to change the way you style your strands. And, please let us know what your faves are: Part of the success of #teamnatural has been everyone's willingness to share their experiences — spread the wealth!
