I'm half Ethiopian-half German, but live in UK now. I just realized that majority of afro hair products come from U. S. But in U. S. a lot of girls relax their hair more.
Isn't it strange? Here in UK we have nice African organic shops, but also products imported from U. S.
I have a friend forn NY who can't live without relaxers, I never understood this
because you have so may nice brends for natural afro hair.

Don't spend money on brands. Use stuff from your kitchen. I've found that baking soda and water is a great clarifying shampoo. Rinse with apple cider vinegar afterwards. Use coconut oil as a conditioner and moisturizer. Everything should be unrefined, and organic is even better.
When it comes to defining your curls, a brand product might be good. Get something 100% natural. Clear lightweight stuff is less likely to leave residue.
Other good ingredients are Shea butter, olive oil, honey (if you aren't vegan), jojoba extract, and aloe vera.
