The best products for afro hair you can buy online
Beautiful women who have all found what works for them
Hey guys, this is Eric, the editor at NAHC. I have had many years of ups and downs with my hair. These involved growing it out and feeling proud. At other times getting frustrated because it was dry and hard to manage which usually lead to cutting it all off.
I have always loved having my hair long and decided 2 years ago that I was going to persist and learn everything I could to make sure I got the hair I always imagined having. I was going to have long, soft, manageable and most of all; beautiful hair that I could be proud of again.
I have been growing my hair for 2 years now and can honestly say, I am happy with it now and wouldn’t change it for anything. I am looking forward to seeing it get longer. I have learned so much along the way from family, friends, websites and videos and want to share what I have learned with you guys.
Getting Annoyed Now
I’m sure you know how frustrating it can be when you are trying your best with your hair and nothing seems to work. You wash it, condition it then style it. All with products you read amazing reviews about and thought would be different from the last set.
Then you leave the house and 1 hour later your hair is dry, hard and starting to go frizzy. It’s easy to persist and try again the next day, after all you spent money on these products and it’s probably best not to be wasteful.
Except we try again and again and the result is the same. There are times when something seems to be working then all of a sudden your hair just disagrees with your routine and starts to misbehave.
What I Found
Luckily, after years of searching and experimentation, I found the solution.
I found what works for me. This got me thinking about all the people that were still struggling like I used to be. I also thought about the people who were like me now who had found happiness and had tamed their hair for good.
We searched for some people with beautiful hair ranging from loose curls to tights curls. We interviewed some of them and published our chats right here on this site. Many of them told us what they had been through and some are still on a journey to find the best hair care routine and the best afro hair products.
We realised that everyone is different and what works for one person may not work for another. There is so much advice out there and so many products that it is easy to get lost and confused.
Through the research we have done at NAHC, we have put together a list of the best afro hair products you can buy online. It would be amazing to hear about what you have tried already and what you are going to buy next. Good look guys, I hope you learn something new and find what you are looking for.
