Hey bestie, it’s your Internet BFF, Kaylannk here! Let’s talk affordable natural hair products.

I get it. Before finding the product that works for you, taking care of your natural hair can feel like breaking the bank sometimes. Between salon visits, styling tools, and all those curl defining products, it’s easy to feel like defined curls is just out of reach. Today, I’m here to tell you that is not true as I share my favorite affordable natural hair products.



1. Shampoo

On a regular basis, I use the Garnier Whole Blends Honey Treasures Repairing Shampoo. The product is moisturizing and leaves my hair feeling soft.

When I have product buildup, I like using the Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo with Avocado. It removes a week’s worth of gel from my hair. I only use this shampoo to get rid of product build up because it has left my hair feeling extremely dry a few times. 

2. Conditioner

Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner with Avocado is the best conditioner I have ever used. The conditioner is moisturizing. It is also a great detangler. 

I use a lot of conditioner to detangle my hair. At this price point, I feel comfortable using a lot of product. 


3. Leave In Conditioner

I like using Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner Repair Cream for every style that I do. Braid outs. Twist outs. Wash and gos. Sleek buns. You name it, I use it.  This product is thick and moisturizing. 

I apply this product to damp hair before I apply my choice of gel. This conditioner works well with most stylers and gels. 

4. Gel

Some gels have a light hold and others have a strong hold. I prefer gels with a strong hold because I like for my hairstyles to last a few days at a time. I like the new Wet Line Xtreme Professional Styling Gel with the blue top. I use this product to sleek down my hair and to define my wash and gos. I also use this gel as edge control. 

I apply this gel after my leave in conditioner of choice. 

I have never experienced crunchy curls after using this product. However, I have experienced flakes from this product. To prevent hair flakes from gel, I make sure I moisturize my hair properly before applying the gel.

5. Oil

I can use any type of oil to moisturize my hair. I like to use coconut oil because it as a pleasant smell. I have also noticed that it has thicken my hair from regular use.

I like to apply coconut oil to my hair before I apply my leave in conditioner of choice and after I apply my gel of choice. In between wash days, I spritz my hair with water and apply the oil to my hair.
