My Ride or Die Natural Hair Products

Monday, March 5, 2018

Warning: I will use the word "love" a million times in this post. When I first started my natural hair journey I was a product junkie! I watched a lot of YouTube videos and immediately went out the bought whatever products my faves were using. These days I'm a bit picky about what I put on my hair (and how much it costs), so I stick with my tried and true drugstore products that always give me great results.

I first started using this when I was transitioning to natural hair. It always leaves my hair feeling moisturized and not weighed down. I love using it now as a daily moisturizer and leave-in for heatless perm and flexi rod sets.

Ecostyle Olive Oil Styling Gel/Ecostyle Argan Oil Styling Gel

My hair is in a wash and go 90% of the time, no matter what time of year. And these gels are always the gels I use to get the best definition. I have used other versions of Ecostyler gels, but none have lived up to the hype of these two. As you can see, the Olive Oil version is my favorite!!

SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie


I've used every product in the SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus line and this is the only one I buy on a regular basis. This super thick creme is what I use to seal my hair when doing the LOC method. I also use it as a styler for my wash and gos when I'm out of gel. It gives my curls great definition like a gel without the crunch feeling.

Deep Conditioners

Deep conditioners are probably my favorite products to buy. The two I always go back to are the ORS Hair Mayonnaise (protein deep conditioner) and the OGX Argan Oil Intense Moisturizing Treatment (moisture deep conditioner). The Hair Mayonnaise always leaves my hair feeling stronger and the Argan Oil makes my super coarse hair feel moisturized.


Dove Style+Care Curls Defining Mousse

I received this product for free for testing purposes, but my opinion is my own. I honestly didn't think I would use or even like this product when I first received it. After using it in place of a gel for a wash and go it became a staple in my product lineup! It defines and holds my curls in place without leaving my hair crunchy.


Honorable Mentions (not pictured):
I'm still on the lookout for a shampoo and conditioner set that I can't live without. I guess my product junkie ways aren't over just yet! If you have any favorite natural hair products, leave them in the comments below! I'm always down to try out new products to find what works best for my hair.

  1. I really like the Curl Enhancing Smoothie and it works so great with my hair. The EcoStyler though gets me because it never holds my hair. :(

    1. The Curl Enhancing Smoothie is a fave, but my hair doesn't really like it unless it's dripping wet. I've only tried a couple gels and the EcoStyler works for now. I would love to try a gel from SheaMoisture or Kinky-Curly and see how they hold up.

  2. The Aussie 3-Minute Miracle, Curl Enhancing Smoothie, & Eco gel are my holy grails!!
