Natural Hair and Exercise: Hair Products I Love!

Hey ladies! I am back from my Vacay so I will continue the Natural Hair & Exercise Series. 

 I have been experimenting with different natural hair products for the past few weeks. It has been quite a journey trying out various styles and products. I think that I have finally found the regimen that works for me.  I roller set my hair with perm rods and sit under the dryer for about 45 minutes. I use Just Natural Organic Hair Care Products. I have found that these products keep my hair really soft and moisturized. These products have helped me survive the D.C. heat wave and my intense workouts. So far I have tried their Shampoo,  Leave-in Conditioner, and Protein Treatment. My roller set lasts about 4 days and I maintain it by pin curling it at night.

The Just Natural shampoo is the only shampoo that I have found to leave my hair soft. It is not harsh like other shampoos. Also, it is Sulfate free which is important for people that wash their hair

I have never tried a protein treatment before. My hair was soft and more manageable after using this, it works well the shampoo and leave-in. 

I apply the leave-in conditioner after the shampoo and protein treatment. This conditioner makes my hair really easy to manage before I do my roller set. 

If you have never used Organic products in you hair you must give these a try!

This is how my hair comes out. 

Additional tips:

I have learned that it is important to separate the hair into sections. This technique makes it much easier to manipulate. I part my hair into four sections before washing it. I wash each section to make sure I get my hair clean. When I apply the leave-in I keep the four sections but then go through and apply the conditioner to smaller sections (like you apply a relaxer). This makes easier for me to manage and apply the conditioner evenly.

Do you have any tips?

Sectioning the hair while washing/conditioning is a MUST! Especially as your hair gets longer. I have been natural since 2003. I haven't experienced any particular challenges with working out and maintaining my hair because it is usually either in a 'fro or some protective style that doesn't require it to have a straightened look. Sweat is no problem for my curls!

Good information here. Thanks for sharing. I have used a couple of soy protein powders and quite liked them.

Nice blog! Just found it today. I hve been napptural since 2004. I love it! I can't see myself relaxing ever again. Now that my has grown back ( used to be real short like a boy cut) lately I've just been slicking it back in a ponytail. Today, I'm wearing a twist out.

Please try Qhemet Biologics! I swear by them. I've been using QB line since it first came out. For my hair they have been the best, and I've tried alot of products throughout the years. I didn't use them for a few years and my hair was not as healthy...but I've come back and can't stay away.

It’s very beneficial for all women. They can make their hair soft and silky by using it. I also use the shampoo and I have strong and beautiful hair.
