It’s no secret that being natural can be a little daunting and even a tad bit overwhelming at times. There are a billion products to choose from, a trillion gadgets that promise to do this or that and it’s easy to confuse what’s best for your hair. We’re not fans of wasting money and we want to keep you from doing just that! We’ve compiled a list of the five must-have styling tools for your natural tresses.
Afro-pik: As your hair grows, the Afro-pik will become your best friend. Trust me on this. It’s the best tool to tease your roots and give you that “big hair look” that all of us naturals love. Wide-tooth comb: Wide-tooth combs are the best! You can use these combs to detangle your hair while you’re washing it and to divide your hair into sections. It allows you to comb through your hair with minimal breakage/damage. Hair scissors: Since many naturals choose to style and care for their own hair most of the time, part of that maintenance includes trimming and dusting our ends. Using the right type of scissors is essential to the overall look and health of your hair. Keep a pair of these in your drawer. Detangling brush: The next must-have styling tool that naturals should have in their hair care arsenal is a detangling brush. Detangling brushes allow you to safely brush your hair and they also make your curls pop! I love the Denman brush but there are other options to choose from. Butterfly clamps: It’s nearly impossible for me to style my hair without using at least two butterfly clamps. Once you’ve divided your hair into sections, these clamps help secure them and keep them all distinct. Of course these aren’t all the tools you may need or require for your hair maintenance routine but we definitely believe these are must haves.
