How to: Newly Natural Starter Kit

You have finally made the decision to go natural. Congrats! You are on the road to self-discovery!! Let's get started making a basic newly natural starter kit.This kit will not include ALL things needed to maintain the natural crown you now wear, Just the basics. And this is in my opinion, as always. LOL.
1.) Rich Moisturizer-Water is the best moisturizer for natural hair. Pictured here is a water bottle. The water bottle can be used daily. Before and during styling, grab the water bottle for a bit of a spritz. This will add moisture to your hair, and make it more manageable by helping the comb to glide through your hair. *Never comb natural hair while dry for it will aid in breaking and or splitting of your ends* 2.) Sulfate free shampoo- to cleanse, or strip the scalp of any dirt, oils, debris. Cleansing the scalp gives you a fresh canvas to work with, if you will. Pictured here is my Shea Moisture:Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo. Love this stuff!!!! 3.) Super hydrating conditioner OR Leave-In-This will help to hydrate those curls, and even add a bit of moisture back in after has been stripped from shampooing. Pictured here are both my Suave Daily Moisture Conditioner, and my Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave-In. 4.) Wide tooth comb- Combing will aid in detangling knots so, The wider the better.NOTE: Combing can also attribute to damaging and or breaking the natural hair strands! If you can help it,Please use for detangling purposes ONLY! Pictured here is my wide tooth comb that I purchased at Family Dollar Stores for $1. 5:) Styling Aids - This will be your product you apply just before styling.Whether you use butters or creams, you need a styling aid! Pictured here is my Shea Moisture: Organic Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie. 6.)Bobby Pins- How else will you secure those cute twists, buns, etc?*These are needed, but not required!* Use all of these items in conjunction with each other, and enjoy. Note: I have not been paid to endorse these products. They were used solely because I find they work for me. Find what works for you!
