My Natural Hair Essentials

When my hair would tangle or get dry, there were a few products I could always count on to get my hair to behave.

If you’re struggling with your daily upkeep of your natural hair and are wondering which products to try then, this post is for you.

Natural hair is no walk in the park but these products I’m about to list can definitely make your life easier. I’ll also be listing places you can get them as well as their prices.B15FE9FF-2A14-429B-BF98-111FD573FD60

I know natural hair products can be a bit on the pricey side but don’t worry most of these products are below ₦3000.

Without further ado, here are my top natural hair products

Spray Bottle

No matter your hair type, a spray bottle is essential. Quote me on this. Your hair needs water, and a spray bottle is a great way to distribute the water evenly without it completely drenching your hair. Spray bottles are not expensive. You can get a spray bottle at any price between ₦300 – ₦1000. Prices will vary depending on where you buy it or the quality of the bottle.

You shouldn’t buy a spray bottle for more than 1k. It’s honestly not worth it.


I only included it in the range as a courtesy. The bottle I use currently I bought for ₦300 and has lasted me for about 7 months now and will probably last longer.

Leave-in Conditioner

What would my 4c hair be without my leave-in conditioner to soften it? If I was only allowed to have 5 hair products for the rest of my life, my leave-in conditioner would be number 1 on that list! My favorite leave-in is the Cantu Leave-in Conditioning Repair Cream.

It just gets the job done. After using it my hair feels revived and soft not to mention, smells amazing. This conditioner is also relatively affordable compared to other brands. So if you’re on a budget and you’re looking for a quality leave-in, the Cantu Leave-in Conditioner isn’t a bad place to start. I bought mine for 2900 at a supermarket but on Jumia, the Cantu Leave-in conditioner goes for 2500.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is my day 1. My hair absolutely loves it. After leave-in conditioner, coconut oil is definitely my second natural hair essential. I have low porosity hair so using coconut oil helps me seal moisture when I LCO.

Coconut oil also stimulates hair growth and adds shine to hair, plus it smells amazing! I love it so much I actually started making and selling my own. I sell coconut oil from ₦600 upwards.

Hair Gel


Laid edges make a difference. When you’re a natural hair gal/boy and you’re trying to look cute & get your hair to stay put, gel can be your best friend.

On a scale of 1-10 Eco styler gel is about a 5.9 on the good gel scale. It lays your edges, gives you curl definition but, be warned, it can be flaky sometimes. I still use it for my edges though plus, it’s affordable.

The gel in this picture is the small size and goes for ₦800. You can get it on Jumia, any supermarket or beauty supply store.



Obviously, laying your edges would be difficult without a toothbrush or brush of any kind but, remember to choose one that isn’t too hard so it won’t hurt your scalp or brush all your edges away.

You can use any old toothbrush for this but, if you’re looking to buy a new one then you should find at any supermarket for anything starting from ₦100.

Shea Butter

Shea butter is truly awesome. It softens hair, while at the same time giving it shine and promoting hair growth. It’s definitely a top natural hair essential for me.
