6 Black Women Owned Hair Care Brands that are Moisturizing your textures with Hair Masks/Pre-poos!
When you suffer from dry hair and breakage the best thing to do is to hydrate and moisturize! Whether you have 4c tight coils or 3b to 4a curls, you want haircare products that are beneficial to your hair type and specific needs. A good and natural, sustainable, and affordable hair mask or pre-poo product added to your wash routine will not only bring up the dirt and flakes from wearing your hair in protective styles or twists, but will also give your hair a healthy detox before adding shampoo and conditioner. I personally know how it feels to deal with frizzy and dehydrated 4c curls and luckily these products down below have helped make my wash days manageable between protective styles.
These 6 black owned hair care brands will give your hair much needed love and care-all at an affordable price! (I have personally used these products and though they have worked for me, use judgement when using them for your own hair type/texture!)
