Looking for the best products to care for, and style, your natural afro-textured hair? You might be surprised where you can find them these days!
Afro hair tends to be beautifully thick, bouncy and curly, but can also dry out more easily, so it needs plenty of TLC. This is because natural oils find it harder to travel through a tightly coiled structure, so the ends end up lacking in essential moisture, which can lead to split ends and breakage.
Whether your hair needs some serious hydration, or you’re just looking for the best way to wash those curls without stripping them of their natural oils, we have you covered.

Dove Hair Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo and Conditioner, R42,95
Improve the texture and soften the frizz of your hair with Dove’s Nourishing Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. With almond and coconut oils, hair is moisturised and tamed.
Dark And Lovely Moisture Plus Oil Moisturiser, R25,95
Afro hair tends to have fewer cuticle layers than other hair types, so it needs plenty of hydration to avoid breakage. Dark and Lovely’s Moisture Plus Oil Moisturiser is a little shot of oil which drenches hair with moisture.
It also smells of delicious almonds (which never hurts, does it?). Use it as an overnight treatment or spray the ends and lengths for an instant hydration hit.

If your curls tend to become a giant mass when left to their own devices, Moroccanoil Curl Defining Cream is a no-fuss solution. Run a good handful through wet hair right from the roots down (be generous), then leave to air-dry to enjoy glossy, defined and soft curls.
