5 Must-Have African American Hair Products

The winter season is quickly approaching and as with any new season, your hair is bound to experience some changes with the new temperatures. Winter, for all of its snow-covered beauty and holiday memories can be notoriously hard on the hair.

The air is dry, the winds are brutal and the temperatures are extreme, when you combine all of those elements you are left with hair that is definitely in need of some TLC.

To make things easier on you (and your hair) I have compiled a list of African American hair products that you simply can’t do without this winter on your quest for hair supremacy.

1. For Reviving Dull Strands

Winter weather can wage war on your locks and one way it does this is by stripping your hair of its natural oils that give it shine. The result is strands that appear dull and lifeless, perfectly echoing the doldrums of winter.

However Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine  is all you need to ensure your hair looks great even in the roughest climates. This product provides your hair with lots of shine and a hint of moisture to keep it looking beautiful.

2. The Perfect Light Hold

When those winter winds begin to pick up and show no mercy, you can pretty much say goodbye to the hairstyle that you spent all morning perfecting, making it necessary to become a member of the hat club.

You can avoid these pitfalls however, if you stock up on Motions Light Hold Working Spritz. It not only keeps your hair in place, but doesn’t weigh it down and make it brittle and sticky.

3. For Sleek Edges

All black women know that maintaining flawless edges that lay down perfectly is one of the ultimate hair quests. This can be especially difficult to achieve during the winter when your hair, especially your edges are ravaged by the dry air and lack of moisture.

Creme of Nature Perfect Edges may come in a small package, but it packs a big punch as it moisturizes and firmly keeps your edges in place all day long.
