There are many reasons the natural hair journey can sometimes be frustrating. Too much frizz, breakage, dry dull curls, etc. Thankfully, there’s always a natural hair product to be the hero and save the day.
However, there are many products on the shelves these days, screaming at your pocket to go broke before pay day.
How do you decide what natural hair products are the essentials? And how can you find one that affordable and fits perfectly in your budget.
In this post, I have compiled a list of the essential natural hair items and some of the most affordable brands available.
Every hair needs a wash day to soak in water and healthy cleansers, then bounce to life fresh shiny. For Wash day, you need a shampoo. The best natural hair shampoos are made of organic ingredients. If they are not they are unhealthy for your hair. They weaken your strands by stripping them of moisture and essential oils. These natural hair shampoos are a perfect choice for your natural hair routine.
Argan Oil Shampoo

Deep Conditioning infuses oil and moisture to your hair, giving it body sheen and softness. A deep conditioner is usually made of natural oils, and naturally moisturising ingredients. You can find these three conditioners locally for decent price.
